Thornton fishing report week ending 26/02/2012

Posted by & filed under Reports.

A good weeks fishing with 158 rods catching 646 trout returning 280 trout for a 4.1 rod average.

Monday to Friday the bank anglers enjoyed the best of the sport with the trout running close into the shallows, however a sharp frost Saturday & bright conditions pushed the trout out into slightly deeper water giving boat anglers the edge.

Bank anglers continued to catch with anglers prepared to walk down to the farm bank finding good numbers of trout.

Intermediate or floating lines with a small green pea, gold head orange fritz, diawl bach & buzzer pattern took the majority of the fish.

Water levels continue to creep upwards & our water clarity is good.

We continue to see good numbers of overwintered 3lb – 4lb+ been taken.
