Thornton fishing report week ending 01/04/2012

Posted by & filed under Reports.

148 rods caught 466 trout returning 155 for a rod average 3.1

The warm spell last week certainly helped with good buzzer hatches during the day, in the main small black buzzers with the black blakestone size 14 buzzer working well. Fish spooned have large numbers of small buzzers & daphnia in them.

The trout have moved this week with the deeper water in front of the stones producing best with intermediate or floating lines with buzzer, orange blob & dawsons olive producing best. On Sunday and with the start of the cooler weather some anglers switched to a fast sinking line & booby which again worked well.

Currently our water level is 3ft8in down but the clarity is excellent.
