Thornton Weekly update week ending 13/05/13

113 rods caught 351 trout for rod average 3.1

Buzzers are on the trout’s menu with the fish feeding heavily on olive and black buzzers, as you would expect on the calmer evenings when the air temperature stays up we are getting an evening rise. Picture of the buzzers the trout are feeding on visit the gallery page at
