Thornton fishing report for fortnight to week ending 11/03/2012

Posted by & filed under Reports.

During the past the fortnight 232 rods caught 489 trout returning 158 for a rod average 2.1

The bank opposite the lodge has been heavily fished since opening day which for us was 6 weeks ago, unsurprisingly therefore the fish have spread themselves out along the shallows of the Thornton & Markfield arm.

Surprisingly for us at this early stage of the season the bottom end of the stones has produced some fish, the stones do not normally produce until early April.

Water height continues to improve, if at times slowly with our water clarity being good.

Floating or intermediate lines with bloodworm, diawl bach, buzzers & small black & green tadpole have generally produced best.

If your coming to fish the bank be sure to bring your waders
