Thornton Weekly Report Week Ending 13th March

Unfortunately we didn’t escape the floods last Wednesday & for the past 5 days we have been waiting for our clarity to improve, and I’m pleased to report improving it is.

Our rod average before the flood was 3.2 and with a stocking going in last Wednesday & another due this Thursday we should start to see our fishing improve.

The shallows always clears first, it’s likely therefore bank anglers will enjoy the best of the sport with the shallows opposite the lodge & corner of the wood fishing best.

It’s likely flies fished slowly with patterns such as booby, cats whisker, dawsons olive will perform best but with my surface temperature up to 7 degrees during any warmer spells we could see some buzzers hatching.

Main gate, lodge & bank open from 7.30am

Full Day Boats 8.30am – 5.45

Part Day Boats 8.30am – 1.00pm /  1.00pm – 5.45pm

All anglers offsite by 6.00pm
