Thornton weekly report week ending 31st October 2017

Tel: 01530 230807

7 0 acre

Another mixed weeks fishing for Thornton with no two days fishing the same as the daily rod average lurches from +2 to -1 no pattern whatsoever.


Phill Moore fished Tuesday morning catching 5 trout and reporting plenty of pulls, Phill returned next day and fished exactly the same but blanked, typical of the way its fishing, no pattern! D Timms and T Green fished Thornton for the first time in a while and were rewarded with 7 fish on sinking lines and booby, Steve Norman went out with his new fast sinking line and caught 5 fish to 3lb while his boat partner caught 2 with the largest a fine conditioned rainbow of 4lb8oz. Keith Coley and John Bebbington caught 8 on fast sinking lines drifting across the middle. Steve Jordan returned for his second visit of the week and recorded 6 trout on fast sinking lines.


Again this week the trout remain in the deep water with few around the margins, we could do with a week of noticeable cooler weather to bring the fry into the margins and hopefully the trout will follow.
