Thornton fishing report week ending 03/06/2012

Posted by & filed under Reports.

132 rods caught 289 trout for rod average 2.2

Despite the weekends rain our water clarity is “gin clear” its as good as it gets!

Water temperature is starting to drop after the past fortnights heat and is down to 17 degrees.
Daphnia is still the main food item were finding in the trout with a few small buzzer with member Mick Glover catching a trout this morning full of this years jelly fry, he was fishing off the corner of the wood. Plenty of sedge about in the evenings with the first of the damsel spotted last week.

Markfield arm with the area from the area from the lonesome pine to the farm bank fishing best with the stones and green bay also worth a look. Our evening rise is still very much hit or miss, a constant spell of westerly winds and steady daytime temps is what we need.

Successful methods last week were either a fast sinking line with orange booby, olive booby or orange blob or a floating line with buzzer or cruncher. The morning session is generally fishing best.
