A massive change in the weather, with the rain most welcome, helping to raise the level at Thornton.
Last week the weather kept the rods off the water but the 84 rods who ventured out caught 236 trout for a rod average 2.8.
With the colder weather sinking lines with booby, blobs & fritz worked best with the deeper water from green bay to the end of the stones fishing best.
Buzzer have worked for some with J. Smith & M. Pepper getting well into double figures all on buzzer fishing from an anchored boat off the corner of green bay.
On the warmer days our buzzer hatches continue to improve with increasing numbers of the large grey/black buzzer coming off.
Despite the rain and the reservoir up a good 8inch our water clarity remains excellent, gin clear.
