Thornton weekly report week ending 4th June 2017
Tel: 01530 230807
70 acre
Another week of continued high water temperatures with the surface temperature between 19 – 20 degrees
Long leaders 20ft+ was the way forward with a heavy if sacrificial buzzer on the point with size 14 buzzer on the droppers working best. A fast sinking line with a booby has also worked with anglers concentrating their efforts to the morning session & the deeper water.
Monday A. Lilley took 9 on buzzer during morning session, Andy and Chris Warren took 6 on Wednesday,
Mick Jay took a 4lb rainbow Saturday with Mick Hanson taking 4 all over 3lb on bobbies on Wednesday morning, Saturday Andre Russell took his float tube out and caught 8 with Phil Mee taking 5 on Sunday morning.

Anglers have enjoyed the blues that were stocked with several blues caught to 3.5 lb
Caroline Brown took her granddaughter out for a fishing session with Evie taking her first ever rainbow, well done
This morning Monday 5th June with this cooler, stormy weather our water temperature has already started to drop, today it’s at a fish friendly 18degrees, looking at the forecast for the next few days I expect the temperature to drop closer to where it should be for early June somewhere between 16 – 17 degrees
