Thornton weekly fishing report week ending 10/02/2013
Despite the weather forecast Thornton is enjoying a far better March with 69 rods catching 400 trout for rod average 5.8
Bank and boat anglers are catching with the shallows opposite the lodge, wood bank & wood bank corner fishing best, not surprising as these areas offer the anglers some protection from the cold easterlies.
Sinking lines with a booby, cat whisker and tadpole or an intermediate with a fritz damsel and cats whisker have been the most productive methods. A few fish have been taken on buzzer and bloodworm patterns.
Our clarity continues to improve as our rod average 5.8 indicates.

Full Day Boats 8.30am – 5.45pm
