Thornton Weekly Report

Week ending 29th September 2019

Much Improved. Thornton has started to fish again with a high number of fish which have been in for months showing, these are fish of 2lb+ with the rainbow great tails, super fit looking fish with photos on our Facebook page

We are seeing good numbers of fish feeding on the surface with buzzers & sedges on the water, the main area were seeing the fish move is in front of the valve tower, green bay & down along the stones.

Floating, midge tip or intermediate lines best with small diawls size 14, hoppers, cdc, daddies & blue flash damsel patterns

The heavy rain has increased the water level by at least 2ft, however clarity remains good due to there being plenty of stubbles in the fields and no plough. The increase in the level has started to flood the bank vegetation that grew during the summer, I would expect the wood bank to start drawing fish which should start to produce some sport for our bank anglers, we recommend if your coming to fish the bank you bring wellingtons or waders.

Clarity is good, very little algae on the water, water temp 17c

Current rod average: 2.8
