Thornton weekly report week ending 28th May 2017
Tel: 01530 230807
Another week of continued high water temperatures with the surface temperature between 19 – 20 degrees
Long leaders 20ft+ was the way forward with a heavy if sacrificial buzzer on the point with size 14 buzzer on the droppers working best. A fast sinking line with a booby has also worked with anglers concentrating their efforts to the morning session & the deeper water.
Monday A. Lilley took 9 on buzzer during morning session, Andy and Chris Warren took 6 on Wednesday, Mick Jay took a 4lb rainbow Saturday with Mick Hanson taking 4 all over 3lb on bobbies on Wednesday morning, Saturday Andre Russell took his float tube out and caught 8 with Phil Mee taking 5 on Sunday morning.
Anglers have enjoyed the blues that were stocked with several blues caught to 3.5 lb
Caroline Brown took her granddaughter out for a fishing session with Evie taking her first ever rainbow, well done www.facebook.com/FlyFishStore
This morning Monday 5th June with this cooler, stormy weather our water temperature has already started to drop, today it’s at a fish friendly 18degrees, looking at the forecast for the next few days I expect the temperature to drop closer to where it should be for early June somewhere between 16 – 17 degrees
