Latest news from Albury, Surrey
Updated September 16th
Please note that Albury is not accessible from the A25 due to the road being closed just before the bridge over the River Tillingbourne. Best access will be from the Chilworth direction or if you are coming along the A25 to divert through Shere village and then back down into Albury.
Good news, Winter Season rods are now available to purchase on the website. They offer fishing between October 1st and to end of March 2021 offering access to all fisheries (Weston, Vale, Powdermills and Syon) during the cooler months when the fishing is probably at its best.
Another good weeks fishing for the time of year with 133 fish taken. Flies that are working well are, green and black blue flash damsel, hothead damsel, daddy longlegs (gold head and dry version) and shrimp patterns fished above the weed beds.
Some good news is that we have opened the toilet at the new fishing lodge. The toilet is accessible from outside the lodge and has the green door (see pics). We will be thoroughly cleaning this toilet twice a day. Please note that the other toilets at Vale End and Powdermills remain closed.
Weston lakes – Generally the water clarity is good in all lakes but the best and most consistent fishing has been Wood Lodge pool, Kingfisher pools and Millhouse lake. Damsel and olive nymphs, buzzers and dry fly especially later in the evenings has been very good.
Vale End Fishery – The water clarity in Belmont is excellent. Mill lake although shallow is fishing well with the hotspot being where the river enters the lake. Small flies have generally worked best with buzzers, PTN, GRHE and small shrimp patterns doing well and later in the evenings dry fly. The river will fish well going forward with the fish preferring the cooler water.
Powdermills – the water clarity is fairly green at the moment and hopefully with a bit more cooler weather the fishing should pick up.
Please could season rods continue to call the bailiff to book a days fishing so we are able to monitor angler numbers on the fishery. Day rods must have payed online before arriving at the fishery.
The new fishing lodge is coming on well.
Please note that the police and environment agency will be carrying out regular patrols of the fishery so please ensure you have a valid rod license and all fish caught are declared and paid for. The picture below is of a recent patrol.
ATTENTION ALL ANGLERS. We have recently caught and banned some anglers abusing our system and practicing catch and release which is NOT permitted on any day ticket Albury water. We now have a number of voluntary bailiff’s who will be on the look out.
We now have for sale through the website ‘Starter Fishing Outfits’ for £69.99. Included is a 9ft 5\6 weight rod, reel loaded with a floating line, tapered leader, flies and safety glasses.

Another week of wonderful weather with cooling nights have seen more fish activity at the surface. Daddies having the best luck for take off the top. Buzzers and Nymphs have also been catching regularly.
The water is gin clear and with a bit of luck from the weather we should be able to maintain that for the foreseeable.
The mornings have been picturesque and those whom come in early have been fortunate to enjoy the mornings mists over the lake
Andy Freeman took this picture early one morning at the head of the lake with a lovely mirrored reflection and a lovely hint of autumn color just beginning.
