Thornton Weekly update week ending 30th September

A change in the fishing this week, daddies were the fly of choice at the start of the week but towards the end of the week and the cooler east winds more and more trout started falling to fry patterns and blobs

With a rod average of 2.5 this past week and a significant number of 3lb+ trout caught, 16 trout over 4lb recorded with Phil Dougan taking a 5lb rainbow, Ian Lindsey 5lb, with T McInally taking the best fish of the week 6lb8oz rainbow as we move into October we can expect some good fish to be taken.

The trout are starting to move from the deeper water into the arms and along the weed beds looking for the fry as we move into October the weed beds will start to produce more and more fish.

Members of the Complete Fisher Forum had their annual weekend get together at Thornton, they had a great weekend look forward to seeing you all next year

Best patterns, daddies, minkie, cats whisker, blob

The autumn great time to be out on the midland reservoirs
