Thornton fishing report week ending 06/05/2012

Posted by & filed under Reports.

The rain has filled the reservoir, it’s actually overflowing.

With the heavy rain and a rapidly filling reservoir the water was unfishable for most of the week but by Saturday conditions improved and the anglers who took to the water enjoyed excellent sport.

Over Saturday and Sunday 49 rods caught 198 trout for a rod average 4.0
Woodbank, lonesome pine and stones fished best with cruncher, diawl bach & buzzers fished on a floater taking the majority of the fish.

We are starting to see an evening rise although the sudden drop in temperature were experiencing in the evening can make the rise short lived.

With the first Hawthorn Fly blowing onto the water this morning and with our water clarity good we should start to see an increasing number of trout feeding off the surface.
