Weekly Report Week ending 12th July 2015

A bit of a better week for Thornton with the highlight being the quality of the trout caught.

Anglers who kept in touch with the lodge and fished the cooler days did best with the majority of the trout caught coming from the deep water in front of the main car park, dam wall and stones. Similar to last week the best method was either a fast sinking line with short leaders and booby, snakes and blobs or floating lines long leaders 20ft+ with weighted bloodworm and buzzer.

Brian White recorded 5lb8oz rainbow, Len Hill 3lb8oz, Tut Miles 6lb2oz, Bet Miles 3lb, Paul Martindale 3lb8oz, Steve Windram 4lb10oz, Mark Goode 3lb, 5lb, John Thomson 4lb6oz
