Thornton weekly report week ending 26th June 2017
Tel: 01530 230807
70 acre
A tough week at Thornton with the heat of the day by Wednesday pushing our surface water temperature to 21+ degrees although a change in the weather, thankfully cooler nights helping by the weekend to bring the water temp back down to 19.5 degrees.
Not surprising therefore that the cooler mornings fished best, with no evening rise to speak of due to the water temperature.
The deeper water in front of the Dam, Green Bay & orange buoy fished best with anglers locating fish from 10ft to 30ft down fishing a range of sinking lines or 20ft+ leaders off a floater.
Kev Maile caught a blue of 5lb6oz along with brown 3lb8oz taken on a 16 olive buzzer fished deep with K Cowen taking 7 on Saturday morning again fished deep.
Orange Boobies, olive boobies along with damsels and small buzzer patterns fished deep produced best
Forecast for this coming week is cooler, showery conditions, great for the fishing, not so good if your planning a BBQ
As always we recommend you contact the lodge, we are in the fortunate position to have other waters we can recommend you fish if we see fit.
Water clarity: We have a mild algae bloom.

The cooler forecasted weather did come and certainly helped with surface water temperature starting most days at 17.5 degrees
Most anglers concentrated their fishing over the deeper water located in front of the dam, orange buoy and green bay.
As the cooler conditions continued we surprisingly found a large number of trout had moved into the shallower water at the top of the Thornton arm, Alan Bradford caught two missing other during a short 2 hour session with the trout coming to big red and small G&H sedge. Russ Martin won the Thornton Fly Fishers competition from this area boating 5 trout. Mark Hunt took our advice and went up the arm fishing his sparsely tied cruncher and damsel patterns to boat 11 trout.
John Considine fished the green bay area and enjoyed a red letter day catching 15 on a popper hopper and green diawl bach. Clive Holt caught 7 for his late evening visit with Peter Wurm and his son boating 5 for their last 4 hour session.
This morning we opened to a surface temperature of 18 degrees, looking at the forecast the morning session 8.30am – 3.00pm will fish best.
Lots of damsels hatching, see photographs on our facebook page www.facebook.com/FlyFishStore

Weather turns hot again, pushing our surface water temp to 23 degrees by the weekend, not great for fishing, not surprising therefore we have had our first proper algae bloom of the year.
Fishing best described as difficult, we have been advising our customer to fish the morning session or go to Foremark or Draycote who benefit from the aerator. With surface temperatures above 20 degrees you won’t get any sort of evening rise at Thornton
We take the water temperature twice a day, 7.30am & again at 5.00pm it can in bright still conditions put on 2 degrees during a sunny bright day in July with its long daylight hours. Our thermometer records the temperature 18in below the surface, its located off the corner of the pontoon over 11ft water.
With customers following our advice few anglers ventured out this week.
Mick Adkin fished a short morning session with a sinking line and a green and black marabou lure to catch his 3 fish, Jan Webber found one of the elusive blues in the deep channel in front of the lodge, Carl Bond fished the deep channel down the Markfield arm and caught his first Thornton brown.
Much, very much improved forecast for the coming week with cooler night, bit more breeze & daytime temperature lower, it should bring down water temperatures across the midlands & improve the fishing.
Water clarity: We have an algae bloom.

As we always advise, keep in touch with the lodge for latest updates

Our water temperature last Monday started high, at 7.30am we recorded a surface temperature of 22 degrees, by the latter half of the week it had dropped to 19 degrees before climbing upwards on Sunday. This morning 16th July it’s back to 19 degrees.
Our water temperature is always taken 18inch below the surface between 7.30am & 8.00am every morning.
Not surprising therefore on Monday & Tuesday of last week we advised our customers to fish Foremark or Draycote & make the most of their aerators.
Wednesday the first rods ventured out with Russ Martin fishing his wet wickhams pattern taking 3 fish by 12.30pm. Richard Price boated 3 for his morning’s session taking his fish on an olive buzzer and minky.
Saturday provided the best of the fishing with a variety of patterns and methods taking fish. Phil Mee fished a booby on an intermediate to take his 3 fish, Paul Martindale fished the washing line to take 2 and lose a further 2 fish. Mark Hunt was convinced that the drifting boat gave him the edge swapping between a dry hopper & cormorant pattern to take his 5 fish with Brian Sibley taking 4 fish to 3lb8oz
During last week the morning session fished best, we are not currently seeing an evening rise.

For this coming week the forecast is for hot weather Monday & Tuesday, starting to cool on Wednesday with a significant cooler period Thursday through to Sunday, more importantly for all midland fisheries its going to be a lot cooler at night, that’s the period the water will lose its heat!

Its July height of the summer & the water temperatures are part of the fly fishing calendar, some years worse than others. On a plus side for fisheries, the daylight hours are slowly starting to creep back, nights will slowly lengthen, its during these darker & hopefully cooler nighttimes temperatures that we will see our daytime water temps improve in favour of the fly fisherman.

Water clarity: We have an algae bloom, visibility is around 3ft – 4ft

Thornton weekly report week ending 23rd July 2017

The toughest week of the season for the fishing at Thornton, July & high summer temperatures does us no favours. This past week we have recorded surface temperatures of 21.5c at 7.30am & seen them climb to 23c by 5.00pm, not surprising therefore we have an algae bloom. Very little to report as we advised our customers not to fish & have recommended Draycote & Foremark with their cooler aerators as an alternative.
Going forward to this coming week & at long last the weather forecast looks like it’s going in favour of the trout fisherman. Cooler overnight & lower daytime temperature on Sunday & this morning has reduced the water to 19c it’s unlikely to climb much above 19.5c during the day before dropping back to 19c by morning. If the current forecast is correct we could see it closer to the magic 18c by the middle of the week, fingers crossed!
With the water temperature down to 19c we should see our catches improve, especially if the water clarity improves as the algae dies back
Surprisingly anglers who caught fish reported they were higher in the water column than expected with intermediate lines working best with a damsel, cruncher, buzzer & booby patterns.
Our water temperature is always taken 18inch below the surface between 7.30am & 8.00am every morning.
Its July height of the summer & the water temperatures are part of the fly fishing calendar, some years worse than others. On a plus side for fisheries, the daylight hours are slowly starting to creep back, nights will slowly lengthen, it’s during these darker & hopefully cooler night time temperatures that we will see our daytime water temps improve in favour of the fly fisherman.

At last our surface temperature has dropped to 19c with the odd cooler morning opening at 18.5c with a the current forecast for the coming week we should see our surface temperature remain around the 18.5c -19c
On the overcast cooler mornings we have seen fish feeding on the surface with the first of our large claret buzzers starting to show, ironically a good week earlier than expected. You can watch a claret buzzer hatch out on our facebook page www.facebook.com/FlyFishStore
Saturday was the day when it all clicked, better water visibility, water temp 18.5c with Sreve Frakes in his float tube catching 11 trout on diawls and blobs, Andre Russell & Richard Dunnett also took to their tubes registering 6 between them. Mark Hunt commented he was sure his success was down to fishing on the drift taking 12 fish on a small cats whisker, diwals and blobs. Howard Davies fished in front of the lodge taking 3 on dries and emergers.
The cooler morning session is still best, look for a cloudy morning. If the water temperature keeps around the 18.5c we will hopefully see a few fish starting to move in the evenings.
Our water temperature is always taken 18inch below the surface between 7.30am & 8.00am every morning.
Water clarity: We have an algae bloom, visibility is around 2ft – 3ft

Our water temperature at 7.30am for most of the week was just under 19c degrees allowing us to introduce some fresh stock fish last Tuesday with another stocking due this week.
We still have algae on the water although any breeze is helping to clear it. Despite the stocking it has still been a relatively tough weeks fishing with the rod average at 1.0
Mornings are still fishing best although we are having some fish move in the evening, unfortunetly any evening rise is occurring during the last 15 minutes of daylight!
Most of the fish taken are coming to floating lines with claret emergers, dries or daddies with an intermediate and micro booby, cats whisker and booby.
Steve Windram caught 5 on a cats whisker in front of the main dam, Nev Welsh caught 3 for his mornings session from the same area. Andre Russell too to his float tube catching 3 but reporting plenty of nips and pulls before the hailstones and torrential cold rain forced him off the water. Mark Hunt reported a frustrating days fishing working hard on a variety of methods to eventually boating his 5 fish again enduring the hailstones and torrential downpours.
We will hopefully see our water temperature drop further this week with the cooler weekly forecast they have given for the midlands.
Our water temperature is always taken 18inch below the surface between 7.30am & 8.00am every morning.
Water clarity: We have an algae bloom, visibility is around 4ft

We did need the rain & the cooler temperatures helped drop the water temperature to 18c most mornings.
Despite another stocking of 625 trout bringing the total stocked since the 1st August to 1025 trout our sport remains stubbornly slow.
We are seeing a few fish move in the late evening to small hatches of buzzer.
Carl Bond donned his waterproof gear & went out on a very wet & breezy Tuesday evening catching two but losing a further 6 fish during a 3.5hr spell fishing a red klink and cats whisker.
Mark Hunt worked hard for his 4 trout using a combination of a claret hopper & ginger hopper casting to rising fish which were proving difficult to tempt.
Chris Sayer caught a 4lb rainbow on a fast sinking
With 4700 trout in the water as soon as conditions come good we should see a marked upturn in our sport
Our water temperature is always taken 18inch below the surface between 7.30am & 8.00am every morning.

Monday to Thursday of last week the fishing remained challenging, on Friday we saw the first signs of the fishing starting to pick up, Saturday continued to see an improvement in the fishing with Sunday producing the best days fishing we have enjoyed for some time.
Shorter daylight hours, cooler nights and improving buzzer hatches, especially the claret buzzer hatch, watch the video on our www.facebook.com/FlyFishStore page has all come together to improve our fishing.
Mick Cross & Chris Sayer shared a boat Friday morning boating 6 trout between them, Howard Davies on Saturday fished a home tied claret nymph to catch 7 trout, Sam Cook caught 3 during Sundays evening rise with Mark Hunt specifically fishing Sunday evening for the claret buzzer hatch, he wasn’t disappointed catching 9 trout and losing as many.
Although we are seeing fish moving during the day to buzzers our large claret buzzer hatch is during the last hour.
Best patterns, damsel, claret nymph, cdc hoppers & daddies
Best area, in front of the lodge, drift from the dam past orange buoy to the wood, although with cooler conditions expect green bay to start fishing with the Markfield arm well worth a visit.
With over 4600 trout in the water with improving conditions our sport should continue to improve
Our water temperature is always taken 18inch below the surface between 7.30am & 8.00am every morning.
Water clarity: Our algae bloom is reducing, visibility is around 4ft

Sadly I have to start this weekly report with the sad news of Louis Conway death. Louise had fished at Thornton for over 30 years and was a regular sight on the water with his boat partners Mick Cross & Geoff Willis. His Irish wit & charm will be missed by all at Thornton.
Monday through to Friday our water temperature was around the 18c mark with anglers in the main catching on cdc, dries, daddies & buzzer with a reasonable evening rise for the anglers fishing the last 4 hours. The trout seemed to be well spread throughout the reservoir with anglers catching over the deeper water in front of the dam and along the shallows of the Thornton & Markfield arm.
Saturday & Sunday we were back to a very warm late August weather which quickly pushed our water temperature back up to 20c+, surprisingly some anglers still caught on emergers & dries although a number of anglers enjoyed good sport using sinking lines & boobies.
Steve Jordan and Steve Norman returning to fly fishing caught 14 for their mornings visit using cdc patterns and a muddler, Norman Perkins fished buzzers to catch his 10 fish with Colin Chambers & Clive Holt fishing the last 4 hours and boating 5 on the same evening Carl Bond fished the last 4hr boating 5 on a claret buzzer
Geoff Over and Len Hill caught 8 for their mornings visit on dries and emergers. Jack Hives fished a dry daddy to catch his 5 trout with Steve Windram finding his cats whisker pattern is still working boating 8 for his mornings visit.
Andy Lilly fishing during a bright spell in the weather caught 5 on a booby. Stuart Thomson caught 7 for his short 3 hour afternoon visit with Mark Hunt found fish hard against the weedbeds up the top of the Thornton arm, although he caught on emergers some of these fish were already on the fry.
Rod average for the week was 1.9 pegged back by the bright, hot conditions on Saturday & Sunday.
Our water temperature is always taken 18inch below the surface between 7.30am & 8.00am every morning.
Water clarity: Most of the week was 4ft however with the bright weather over the weekend our visibility has reduced to 1ft

A bit of a strange week with the reservoir fishing better during the early part of the week when our rod average was 2.1 however over the weekend and possibly down to the algae it did not fish well with the overall rod average for the week dropping to 1.4
Monday Jan Webber fished booby and damsel patterns catching 14 trout on the drift from the dam to the wood. Steve Windram and Phil Cross shared a boat catching 10 on blue flash damsel. Jan Webber returned to fish on Saturday but found conditions more difficult taking 5 trout to the same successful method he used on Monday.
The water temperature has slowly dropped during the week with the surface temperature by the end of the week at 18.5c, we continue to have an algae bloom which should start to drop out with the cooler overcast conditions forecast for this week.
As we move into September we can expect the buzzer & dry fly fishing to pick up with daddies featuring in the catches, also expect to find a few trout on the fry amongst the weed beds of the arms.
Rod average for the week was 1.4
Our water temperature is always taken 18inch below the surface between 7.30am & 8.00am every morning.

This past week’s rod average 2.0 would have been much higher if only our algae bloom would drop out of the water, visibility is improving and is currently 2ft – 4ft, search out the areas upwind were the water will be at its clearest.
The majority of the trout taken are on floating or intermediate lines with a good rise enjoyed on a few evenings this past week. Anglers report plenty of fish following or coming to the fly to only turn away at the last moment.
Fish were seen all over the reservoir this week although the largest concentration is still to be found in front of the dam wall and across the main basin.
Steve Jordan and boat partner Steve Norman fished hopper to boat their catch of 11 trout, Val & Mick Jay fished a morning session with sedge patterns to catch 5. Norman Perkins caught 9 for his visit with Andrew Wilson fishing an evening session boating 4 trout during the evening rise on muddlers and buzzers. Sunday evening Peter Wurm fished the evening rise catching 5
Thornton Fly Fishers fished their boat pairs competition with eventual winners Nigel Harvey and Richard Dayman, report and pictures on facebook www.facebook.com/FlyFishStore
Rod average for the week was 2.00
Our water temperature is 16.5c and is always taken 18inch below the surface between 7.30am & 8.00am every morning.

Water clarity is improving daily with visibility 4ft+ with our water temperature down to 15.5c It’s had an autumnal feel to it all week.

With the cooler conditions and rapidly improving water quality the majority of the trout are being caught on floating, midge tip, hover or intermediate lines with fry patterns, small emergers, hoppers and daddies taking fish. Its noticeable this past week that the majority of trout were caught during the second half of the day with a good at times excellent late evening rise.

For the early September fry feeders concentrate your efforts to green bay, stones, corner of the wood & the weed beds down the arms, for fish on the buzzers in the main basin but again the arms are well worth a look.

Clive Holt fished a late evening session and caught 12, John Simpson caught 11 for his visit with Andrew Wilson fished another late evening session catching 6 on buzzer and claret bumble, Mark Hunt decided to fish the evening rise and caught 18 using a hover line and small cormorants.

Anglers reported fish were prepared to follow a daddy, popper hopper or muddler moved through the surface but were generally taking short, exciting sport nevertheless.

Rod average for the week was 2.5
