Latest news from Albury
Updated 24th August
All lakes open apart from Weston Main Lake, which has been drained and is now refilling and should re-open at the end of August. Wood Lodge pool and Millhouse lake at Weston open as normal.
The water temperatures are still very warm. The best of the fishing is currently at Vale End (all areas) and top and bottom lakes at Weston – Wood Lodge (recent stocking of blues and browns here) and Millhouse. Powdermills, is offering an algal bloom and until we recieve a prolonged cooler spell will offer very little in terms of fishing.
Last week 133 fish were taken from the day waters. The best brace of the season came out Saturday 30th July, 11lb and 10lb rainbows to the rod of Tony Lynch, taken from the mouth of Mill Lake Vale End, both to a Pink Shimp.
We have also stocked a number of blue trout into Wood Lodge pool which offers the best sport in hot weather due to the lovely cool water from silent pool.
GRHE and BFDs are taking most fish, with also a good number of fish coming to the dry fly. A big bushy sedge will often draw a fish to the surface even in the absence of any hatch. Dropping down leader strength to between 3lb and 4lb will be effective.
Vale End Fishery was very busy Sat 16th July with a Teach In day, which saw 17 new anglers taking to the sport for the first time. Warm and humid, fishing was very tough, just two fish taken by the beginners, but plenty of time to catch on their tokens during the rest of the season.
Next Teach-In event is Sat 15th October. In addition, 1:1 lessons at a mutually convenient time are always available.
Great news, the new 2016/17 tickets and season rods are now available to purchase online or on the bank. Visit Season Membership page.
Anglers please remember that the current pink 2015/16 tickets have now expired.
Early week Discount ……remember that reduced day rod membership of £8 is available on Mondays and Tuesdays.
