Thornton fishing report week ending 15/04/2012

Posted by & filed under Reports.

Despite the changeable weather and the bitterly cold north wind we enjoyed a reasonable weeks fishing with 124 rods catching 422 trout for a rod average 3.4.

Water clarity is as good as it gets with visibility easily 12ft+.

Trout spooned have bloodworm, buzzers daphnia in them with increasing numbers of buzzer on the water when weather conditions allow.

Intermediate and sinking lines with buzzer, orange blob, dawsons olive and booby have worked best with the stones, farm bank and lonesome pine being the favourite areas.

Andre Russell fishing from his tube caught 8 trout for 18lb while John Smith and Melvyn Pepper returned for another visit and caught over 20 fish on buzzer.
