About Albury Park:
Albury Park Fishery offers the very best of both lake and stream fishing at this classically beautiful venue set amidst magnificent trees, rhododendron and azalea bushes. It is a peacefully quiet location at which to fish, with the brownie sport for both stocked and wild fish on the Tillingbourne a particular feature.
The tranquil 1.5 acre is stocked with those hard-fighting Albury rainbows, averaging 2.25lbs, whilst the river beats offer challenging sport to browns of 1lb to 1.5lbs with a catch and release option here. Indeed, most river anglers tend to return their fish, only taking one or two for the pot. The lake sport is very definitely catch and kill.
Members may elect to fish on a Full Rod status (fishing every day of every week), Half Rod status (fishing every day of every alternate week), or on a recently introduced Family Rod (where two family members can fish on any day of very week).
Syndicate members may bring a guest on any day they choose, but no guest may visit on this basis more than once a season. This is a particularly useful option if you enjoy a fishing reciprocation with friends away from Albury’s waters! If you want to fish Park more than once ayear, then you will need to consider joining the syndicate yourself!
We do currently have some spaces available.
The River Tillingbourne running through Albury Park is a delightful stretch to fish, and is divided up into eight distinctive beats, each of some 250 metres in length. The fishing here is varied, some beats are slow deep glides held up by antique sluices, whilst others are steeper faster runs offering a classic pool-and-riffle profile. Fly life is prolific, with stone clingers to agile darters abounding in the well oxygenated water. The mayfly hatch is particularly exciting, and begins around 10th May each season, whilst there are good numbers of sedge during mid to late summer.
Park Lake has an excellent throughput of water off the Tillingbourne, and historically, is a relatively new fishing venue, the site being resurrected by the Estate from a tired old bog garden around 1990. Fly life is also very abundant here, with damsel, mayfly, buzzer and sedge all featuring prominently on the menu.
Membership at Park also gives you access to the entire day ticket system at Albury. For anglers contemplating fishing over the entire 12 month rainbow season, a Park Rod is the most cost effective way to fish these waters.
The price of fishing in the Park starts with a Half Rod at £672.50 (taking up to 45 rainbow trout and 20 brown trout).
During winter 2012-13, we have drained and desilted the lake, redefining the bank line. Meanwhile, on the river beats, there is work in progress continually, gently pinching the river width to speed the flow and deepen the channel where necessary. This ultimately improves the trout’s habitat, whilst the banks become less inclined to erode during flood condition. Natural materials are used in this process, mostly willow, to enhance the quality of the fishing, whilst preserving the beauty and biodiversity of the river as it flows on down the valley.
