Thornton Weekly Report

Week ending 15th September 2019

Tel 01530 230807

The cooler evening has helped to drop our water temperature to 17c, the algae however stubbornly refuses to go which continues to impact on our sport

A slight improvement to the fishing this week although at Thornton its still sinking lines with booby & snakes while Draycote & Eyebrook with little or no algae are enjoying dry fly sport.

The drifts from the car park, valve tower & green bay across the main basin are the areas to concentrate with anglers covering the water on the drift or back drift catching better than the anglers on anchor

With the boobies on a sinking line a shorter 6 – 8ft leader with orange boobies best with a longer leader best if your fishing snakes

Mornings is best, a few fish are moving in the evening although the algae is hampering any rise

Current rod average: 1.2
