Thornton weekly report week ending 14th Oct 2012
Not a bad weeks fishing for us with 121 rods catching 279 trout for a rod average 2.3
Autumn is well & truly with us & our fishing is on the change as well as the trout move off the buzzer & start looking for the autumn bonus feat “fry”
Brian Fox kept faith with his buzzers and had an excellent catch of 14 rainbows including fish of 5lb4oz & 4lb8oz, returning a few days later to catch another 9 trout to 2lb8oz, John Considine fished damsel and fry patterns taking fish to 4lb8oz.
As the week moved on the trout have started to move from the deeper water located around the orange buoys and dam wall with the shallows of the wood bank, green bay and farm bank starting to fish.
Our reservoir level remains full and our water clarity is excellent.
