Latest news from Albury
Updated 21st July
Summer heat building now, fishing getting more testing, try and fish away from the heat of the day.
In the last 4 days to 17th July, 79 fish were taken off the day waters, many to buzzers abnd a selection of dry flies.
Weedcutting news – boat is currently at Park Lake, Weston Millhouse, Belmount have been cut at Vale End, as has Powdermills (currently bright green water!)
Currently its all about fishing location, with the best sport being on Wood Lodge pool at Weston, Vale End and the river sections.
GRHE and BFDs are taking most fish, with also a good number of fish coming to the dry fly. Dropping down leader strength to between 3lb and 4lb will be effective.
With the mayfly actions at an end anglers wanting to continue catching off the surface should look to small olive and sedge patterns. A big bushy sedge will often draw a fish to the surface even in the absence of any hatch.
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.
More imitative patterns such as buzzers and small nymphs are accounting for good numbers of fish at the moment. With Weston and Powdermills being so clear at the moment a stealthy approach will be needed. Also with a warm spell of weather forecast expect more prolonged spells of surface activity.
