Thornton Weekly Report
Week ending 11th June
Tel 01530 230807
The weather and water temperature has a massive impact on our sport, with this past week being a topsy turvy week with the surface water temperature ranging from 19c to 21c
It was a case of watching the weather and keeping in touch with the lodge especially if you wanted to fish the evening.
Tuesday evening following a cooler day Peter Wurm & Mark Hunt opted to fish the last 4 hr, both reported seeing good numbers of fish moving, if a little difficult to tempt, with Peter landing 4 and Mark who fished the last 2hr landing 2 trout on edge patterns, both commented that the majority of the fish moved during the last hour 8.45pm -9.45pm
Andy Lillie made the most of the cooler morning conditions catching 14 trout with all of the fish caught on a fast sinking over the deeper water.
Paul Martindale & Phill Mee shared a boat on Saturday morning catching 11 trout, Mick Huffer also fished Saturday morning catching 7 on damsel and buzzers, Steve Meachem caught 5 with Brian Sibley & Alison catching 8, Mark Hunt went after the pin fry feeders and caught 10.
Sunday Keith Cowen caught 6, K Mailie caught 4 including a 4lb brown.
The water level is down around 3ft currently as STW have some work to do on the spillway, our water clarity is good
As always we recommend you contact the lodge for latest updates
