Weekly Report Week ending 28th April 2015

Good weeks fishing at Thornton with the weekly rod average at 4 with the majority of the trout taken falling to buzzer, diawl bach, damsel with some fish taking dries.

Trout have moved into the main basin of the reservoir with plenty of trout to be seen moving around the red buoy area, stones, main dam & green bay with excellent buzzer hatches.

Bank anglers are still catching from the corner of the wood past lonesome pine down to the farm bank. If your coming to fish the bank we recommend you bring waders

Couple of evenings when the air temperature stayed up the evening rise was exceptional, Clive Holt fished suspender buzzer on the drift to boat 9 for his last four hour visit.

Richard Price recorded 5 trout for a total weight of 14lb8oz, A Brown had trout to 4lb, R Collier fish to 4lb2oz, Chris Sayer took 2 fish for a total weight of 8lb8oz, Tony Bokenham recorded trout of 5lb, 4lb1oz, 4lb, P Wrigley 5lb2oz.
