Thornton Weekly Report

Week ending 22nd September 2019

Tel 01530 230807

Cooler water conditions and with the algae reducing, still there but nowhere near as bad as the week before, we are seeing an improvement to the fishing with a rod average 1.8 for the week

Morning generally best although we are seeing some fish moving in the evening with some large buzzer hatching.

The deeper water in front of the dam, main car park, green bay and stones are the areas to fish with anglers either on fast sinking lines, midge tip or floating lines.

Mark Hunt recorded 17 trout during his two visits catching on dries, cdc and diawl bach. Jan Webber caught 3 for his mornings visit fishing along the stones with buzzer and yellow minkie booby. P Hunt also fished along the stones catching 5 on buzzers and boobies with Peter Wrigley fishing buzzers to take his 3 trout during a mornings visit. Peter Broad fished boobies and diawls to catch his 4 trout again during a morning visit.

With the cooler conditions and improving situation with the algae we will be stocking again this Monday 23rd.

Our water level is currently 6ft down

Current rod average: 1.8
