For the time of year when normally the fishing drops off, this year we are in a good place with a wet and relatively cool summer so far. There were 158 fish taken last week.
The best fishing has been at Vale End and Weston at Wood Lodge and Kingfisher pools but if it stays reasonably cool any lake will be worth a go. As well as fishing the correct areas in the hot weather it’s also important to fish at the best times which will be early morning and late evening. As well as this you may want to think about your approach to fishing with smaller flies and finer tippets being a good option.
Remember the fishing lodge is open for tackle sales Wednesday afternoons 2pm to 4pm.
The new fishing lodge is now open. We will open in two phases. The first on the 26th May will see it open in a basic format and you will be able to access the seating area to use (7 days a week 8.30am to 4pm) and help yourself to a tea or coffee. Payment will be made into an honesty box (£1 per cup). The office will be open on Wednesday afternoons 2pm to 4pm if you wish to buy any flies, leaders and accessories.
The water clarity at all venues is currently really good and that coupled with the cold water means conditions are about as good as you can get. Fish have responded well to small lures such as damsels and cats whiskers but with good buzzer hatches and olive hatches small buzzers and nymphs will do well. Fishing dries will be an exciting way to take fish. Try small olive patterns, hoppers and sedges.
Please remember that 2020/21 yellow tokens have now expired and cannot be used.
Latest news from Syon Park, London
As Spring begins and the warmer weather raises our moods we are also beginning to see daily hatches and are all anticipating the fish rising so we can start our dry fly fishing. We are seeing a lot of buzzer casts on the surface of the water as well as nymph movement in the lake fringes.
Black and red Buzzers being the first choice followed by other buzzer variants working well. Black and blue damsels have also been have good success.
Fish are being caught across the lake however around the island is the most success.
Unfortunately we have issued another life time ban to an angler who has not been putting token in the returns box. This is a horrible thing to happen but we are being left with no choice. We expect all anglers to abide by the Fisheries rules to make things fair and enjoyable for all of us.
Fishing permitted until Dusk . No Catch and Release Permitted.

We’ve 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.
Despite some really hot weather 432 fish have been caught in the last two weeks. The most reliable fishing has been Vale End and Wood Lodge pool and Kingfisher pool at Weston. Early mornings and late evening are the best times to concentrate your efforts.
