Thornton weekly report week ending 21/10/12
91 rods caught 220 trout for a rod average of 2.4, our water clarity is excellent and our levels are full.
The condition of the trout been caught is excellent with 20% of the trout caught weighing over 3lb, these last few weeks of the season always produce our best looking trout.
As you would expect for late October fry patterns are taking the majority of the trout but M Martindale caught 3 on buzzers, Brian Fox continues to catch on buzzers taking another 8 trout while Steve Warner fished from his float tube for a morning session catching 4 to 3lb on damsel and hares ear.
The area in front of the lodge, corner of the wood, green bay and above the farm bank have all produced this past week with Wet Cell 2, DI3 & DI5 lines with minkie booby, Zonker and cats whisker all patterns taking fish.
