Thornton Weekly Fishing Report w/e Sunday 19th July 2015
Similar to last week, the warm weather has resulted in challenging
conditions but the quality of the fish taken has been exceptional with
25% of the week’s catch exceeding 3lb, including some resident fish of
Biggest catch was by member Mr White who boated 4 in a short morning
session before it became too warm.
On Wednesday Mick and Val Jay boated fish of 5lb and 41/2 lb during
their session on whilst Keith Cowan had a brace weighing in at 5 and 3
1/2 lb. On Saturday Brian Sibley fished damsels over the weed beds off
the dam to net 2 fish for 10lb.
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.
This week there has been some good hatches of damsels during the day and
sedges in the evening and in favourable conditions, dry fly tactics
have taken fish in the evening.
