Weekly Report Week ending 8th February
The 2015 season at Thornton opened on the 1st February.
Despite the cold wind and a third of the reservoir covered by ice most of last week the main catching area opposite the lodge and wood bank has remained ice free.
Not surprising with the cold weather the trout are hard on the bottom it’s a case if not catching keep on the move, a move of 10 yards can put you on a pod of fish.
Sinking lines in the main have worked best although on the calmer and warmer days an intermediate has worked.
Flies, booby orange or black and green, tadpole black & green or apps bloodworm.
104 rods killed 136 trout returning 201 for an average 3.2
