Thornton Weekly Report

Week ending 22nd August 2019

Tel 01530 230807

Similar tale to last week, fishing remains slow.

Some rods are picking up fish with Mark Hunt fishing last Friday in very wet & breezy conditions finding fish moving in Green Bay catching 6 on cdc buzzers & daddies.


Most anglers who caught fished snakes, booby & cats whiskers as we currently have an algae bloom, if we have a breeze it is blowing it all to one end of the reservoir.

Water temperature is starting to drop with it currently at 19c in the morning

As we hosted the John Horsey comp at Draycote last weekend we have moved some boats as they were required for the competition, this will temporarily reduce the Thornton boat availability, please call the Thornton lodge to book a boat before you travel.
