Thornton weekly report week ending 26th June
Tel: 01530 230807
A tough week for us at Thornton, the showers when they came were at times torrential. We have however been left with a brown algae which has made the fishing difficult at times, reflected in a rod average of 1.0
We are fortunate to have Foremark and Draycote within our group of fisheries and have advised customers to visit them until our fishing picks up
Another stocking last week should see an upturn in catches once this present brown algae bloom has gone.
It’s not all gloom and doom Simon Giles who started fly tying the other year tried out his new small fry patterns catching 5 and losing others for his Sunday morning visit, Andrew Wilson took our advice and fished damsel patterns mid water catching 3 but reported missing many more for his Sunday morning visit, Paul Martindale fished a morning session fishing an intermediate and a blue flash damsel to catch 6 trout, Adrian Freer fished a medium sinking line to catch 8 trout on hares ears and damsel patterns again on a morning session
Hatches: Caenis, huge numbers of damsel, huge numbers pin fry, sedges
Mornings are best with little or no rise in the evenings.
Water temp 18 degrees, clarity cloudy due to brown algae bloom.
