Thornton weekly report week ending 28th May 2017

Tel: 01530 230807

70 acre

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

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
