Thornton fishing report week ending 09/07/2012

Posted by & filed under Reports.

62 rods caught 167 trout rod average 2.7

And here is your weekly weather report!

Its seems like I’m writing a report on last week’s weather as the weather currently is dominating the fishing.

Last week the rain and especially Friday’s deluge kept rods away with the level at Thornton rising by a good 18in+ on Friday.

Friday night coming off the pontoon the water level was up to your knees, by Saturday morning it was still above wellington height.

By Sunday if you wore wellingtons you could get onto the pontoon, Monday (today 9th July) you still need willies, if your coming fishing be sure and bring wellingtons to gain access to the pontoon.

As you would expect with such a torrent of water the reservoir has coloured, visibility is not great at around 2ft but rods who ventured out on Saturday and Sunday all reported hooking trout.

On Saturday Mitch went out in his tube and caught 3 on Sunday Brian Sibley caught 3 to 3lb, Mr Young caught 6 While Matt Vickers came for an evening and caught 2 with the best 4lb10oz both fish were seen rising and Matt took them both on a dry orange daddy. Despite the colour its obviously clear enough for the trout to see a fly.

Before the rain, buzzers, damsel were working best.
