Thornton Weekly Report

Week ending 4th March

Tel 01530 230807

Normality returns, looking out of the lodge window this morning there’s very little snow left on the ground with the thaw currently not causing us any water clarity issues, due to the cold of last week we currently have good water clarity.

A handful of anglers braved the conditions this past week with most been rewarded with a fish or two, the rod average for the week was 4.0

The best of the fishing was during the period 12.00pm to 4.00pm with cats whiskers. Mike & Paul Sellors fished Saturday afternoon along the shallows opposite the lodge catching 7 trout between them, on Sunday Mike Harrison fished from a boat from 1.30pm – 5.00pm catching 5 from the top of the Thornton arm, Mark Hunt also fished Sunday from 11am – 5pm along the shallows opposite the lodge catching 7 trout.

As always call the lodge for update

Afternoon session fishing best.

Best Area: Top of the Thornton arm & down along the shallows opposite the lodge along the wood past lonesome pine to the tern raft, trout are well spread, but very close to the bank

Best Method: Floating Line, Midge Tip and cats whisker

Rod average 4.0

Hopefully our fish suppliers who have been snowed in for days will be able to get out delivering fish again this week, Thornton has a delivery scheduled for this week with rainbows up to 3lb been stocked
