Thornton fishing report week ending 17/06/2012

Posted by & filed under Reports.

Rain, cold daytime temperatures, but it suits the fishing, pull on your waterproof clothing the 91 rods who fished last week caught 281 trout for a rod average 3

Despite the rain and the water level going up again, its been running over the overflow constantly since late April, our water clarity is great, gin clear is the description used by many of the visiting anglers.

The fish are not in the usual places you would expect them to be for late June with the corner of the wood and Thornton arm fishing well with buzzer, orange blob and damsel patterns.

Generally the morning to mid afternoon is fishing best we are not getting the evening rise as the temperature seems to drop by quite a large margin each evening.

Daphnia still remains the trout’s No1 food item although a few fish caught up the Thornton arm have had a few snails in them. Increasing number of damsels about a settled spell of warmer weather should see these numbers increase.

Longest Day falls on 21st June it won’t be long before were asking “were did that season go?”
