Latest news from Albury
Updated 26th March
Good fishing continues at Albury. 77 fish taken yesterday in the beautiful spring weather, Vale End the most productive water with 37 caught. Buzzers accounting for a fair number of fish, otherwise BFDs and Cats Whiskers still scoring well.
The past week has seen continuing winds from the east or north, so temperatures have been low, and the fish have been staying fairly deep. An introduction of warm winds will bring the fish quickly to the surface.
Some colour in the water at Powdermills and Vale End, but Weston remains beautifully clear, and has provided the lion’s share of the catch this week.
In the week to 22nd March, our Albury waters produced a total catch of 276 fish with Weston producing 141 fish, Vale End 104 fish and Powdermills 31 fish.

Good consistent fishing here in the past week inspite of the weather staying cold, and some colour in the water too.
104 fish landed from the waters here in the week to 22nd March, better clarity this week as the diatom bloom begins to clear. A good throughput of water helping here.

How’s it fishing – Syon
BBC Weather Forecast for Syon
|Last week was dominated by freezing cold easterly winds making life pretty uncomfortable on the bank but 155 fish were taken by those brave enough to face the cold including a 6lb Rainbow on a Cats Whisker and a 4lb Brown on a Black Minkey both taken by Terry Cooling on the same day.I am glad to report that the diatom bloom is now receding and the water clarity and the fishing are steadily improving as a result. But be prepared to fish deep as the water temperature is still only 8 degrees. Most people using an intermediate or slow sink line, otherwise use a floater with a long leader and put on a goldhead Blue Flash Damsel or Cats Whisker to get the fly down to the right depth and move around the banks to find the most productive spots.
If you are a first time visitor to the fishery, please call the duty bailiff on 07956 378138 the day before your visit to obtain the code to enter into the keypad on the gate entry system.
