Thornton Weekly Report

Week ending 17th March 2019

Tel 01530 230807

A week of unusually constant strong winds which has kept the boats off the water & anglers off the bank for most of last week. We desperately needed the rain to fill the reservoirs after a dry winter, that was the only good point of the weeks weather.

Tuesday provided us with a short break in the weather with J Cutts & M Aylott catching 14 between them on booby, appetizer, Pitsford pea and damsel.

It was Sunday before rods were out again with the ladies leading the way, Carren Tate caught 5 for her mornings visit with Alison Toon catching a 3lb4oz rainbow.

All Water member Mark Hunt having caught 4 at Eyebrook during a short two hour session on Friday visited Thornton on Sunday catching 6 on bloodworm patterns

Clarity is 2ft+ and improving, with last weeks stocking and a better forecast we should see good sport for bank and boat anglers at Thornton this week

Reservoir is currently 3ft down if your coming to fish the bank wellingtons or waders are recommended.

Water clarity is improving and is fishable

Our rod average was 2.3
