Thornton Weekly Report

Week ending 30th September

Tel 01530 230807

Rod average of 1.2

A mixed weeks fishing with some rods catching well while other struggled with any evening rise more of a miss than a hit. With the reservoir down 7ft any amount of wind does churn up the fine silt & therefore the water on some days can have a brown tinge to it.

Saturday proved to be the best day with Brian Sibley boating 9 while Mark Hunt caught 7. The Markfield arm is the best area to try with an intermediate line with an orange blob, fab or booby being the most successful method. We are seeing a few of the larger claret buzzers hatching with claret hopper or cdc working during these hatches

A further stocking is due into Thornton on Tuesday 3rd October

The water level is down 7ft as STW have engineering works to be done to the overflow and spillway. STW confirm the work is due to start mid October
