Thornton fishing report week ending 18/03/2012

Posted by & filed under Reports.

A better weeks fishing for us with 133 rods catching 475 trout returning 238 for a rod average 3.6

The British Float Tubing Association fished with us on Saturday with 16 anglers taking to their tubes, catching 85 trout for a rod average of 5.3 Well done to Dave Carrie who came first in their match.

The trout are getting well spread throughout the reservoir with the stones fishing well this week with boat & bank anglers picking up good numbers from this area.

The Thornton Arm, Farm Bank & Stones continue to provide the best of the sport with an increasing number of trout feeding on the improving buzzer hatches & daphnia.

Intermediate or floating lines with orange blob, orange fritz goldhead, buzzer, diawl bach & green pea have been the most successful method & patterns, with buzzers fished under an indicator starting to take an increasing number of trout.

Our water clarity is good & our level is still 3ft down.
