Thornton Weekly Report

Week ending 5th August

Tel 01530 230807

Fishing reports are getting a bit repetitive, I for one won’t be disappointed to see the back of this hot weather, toughest conditions I’ve seen for managing trout fisheries.

Were fortunate to have 3 other fisheries Draycote, Foremark & Eyebrook, we can see which one is fishing the best and recommend to our customers.

Thornton is now down 7ft in preparation for the engineering work STW need to carry out on the overflow & slipway.

Our water temperature has jumped again this week with a return to the hot weather following a brief respite last weekend.

The few rods who have fished have generally followed our advice and fished the morning session, but its been hard with the rod average 0.5

As we always recommend contact the lodge for latest update 01530230807

We have some algae in the water, visibility is around 2ft

Rod Average 0.5
