It was a disappointing week weather wise with some very strong winds most days and a fair bit of rain. However in between the worst of the weather anglers had some goof fishing and still managed to catch 190 fish. The weather this weeks looks much better.
A stunning brown trout weighing 8lb 12oz taken from Powdermills by Neil Eyles (see pic below).
A stunning rainbow caught last week by 85 year old Keith Andrea at Weston. The fish weighed 10lb 12oz.
The conditions are great for fishing so get out and use your blue fish tokens that expire the end of March. We should see next seasons 2019/20 fish tokens come into circulation at the end of the week.
Below are some of the fish caught recently.
The fish are certainly sitting slightly deeper at a depth of between 3ft and 5ft with small to medium sized lures (BFD, Hot head damsels and orange fritz) fished slowly appear to be taking good numbers of fish. However its not all about the big fluffy stuff as as the temperature peaks during the day this may encourage a small buzzer hatch and the fish will move up the water column to feed on them, so have a selection of buzzers and small nymphs to hand.
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.
In the absence of Albury Game Angling shop we will now be selling Fulling Mill flies, spools of leader and tapered leaders. These will be available from the bailiff. We will look to expand our range over a period of time.

98 fish out last week. The strong winds have made it extremely difficult to retrieve floating lines. An intermediate or sinking line will do much better if you’re able to get a cast out between gusts. Our Scouts day went extremely well in the morning session with a fish caught by 8 out of 10 scouts before the wind picked up. Unfortunately we had to cancel the afternoon session. We will be running this session in the future to coincide with a Young Angler’s Day, if you’re interested in getting a 10-16 year old into fly fishing please email [email protected]
Only two weeks to go to use up those blue tokens! Blue Flash Damsels, Diawl Bachs, and Buzzers have been fishing very well at a depth of 3-4ft. A slow steady retrieve should give the fish plenty of opportunity to see the fly. The bridge is holding lots of fish, there is also a shoal holding near the big log bench at the top of the lake.
There is currently a net strung across the shallow end of the lake. We are stocking both sides of the net, but if you have lots of tokens left have a go in this area where the fish should be shoaled up tighter. It will be in place until the end of this week.
Lawrence Beazley has our current biggest fish of March at 5lb 8oz but bigger fish have been stocked since. Remember to call the bailiff phone if you catch a big fish so we can enter you into the Trout Masters competition.
Andy Freeman caught the biggest fish in February. The 8lb 8oz rainbow took a BFD under the willow tree at the shallow end of the lake.
We’ve recently uploaded videos of Syon Park from the Sky! You can really appreciate the seclusion provided by Capability Browns tree line when you fly over the top and see the city sprawl around us. See Lakes From Above Page.
Entry to the fishery will continue to be 8:30am but last entry will now be 6pm – fishing can continue as usual to dusk.
If you are a first time visitor please call the bailiff on 07956 378138 the day before to get the gate entry code. Just start fishing, we will issue your membership/entry card and tickets on the bank. Please note that the gate entry code changes every month… get used to using your card to gain entry or you won’t be able to get in!
