Fishery Report: Week Ending: 8th March

Another tough week with water clarity been the issue, however at long last were seeing an improvement with the clarity as you walk onto the pontoon 18inch+

With little or no fishing at Thornton these past few weeks due to the weather it will be a bonus for us to enjoy some better weather & conditions with rods on the water again

A further stocking of 900 trout averaging 2lb is due this week

Water temperature is 6c best method is likely to be sinking lines with boobies, blobs & fabs.
