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.
For anyone that has any pink 2019/20 fish tokens left we plan to extend the deadline for use of these tickets until June 15th 2020.
A slightly lower catch total for the week but still a very healthy 343 fish caught in hot bright conditions. The largest and biggest bag of fish was to Michael Corsini who had three stunning brown trout between 6lb and 8lb on stalking bugs at Vale End (see pics below).
It looks like more hot weather this week so morning and evenings will see the best of the fishing. With the fish being well spread over the lakes and feeding hard, natural fly patterns produced with buzzers, diawl bachs and small drab nymphs working particularly well. Obviously the famous Blue Flash Damsel took its fare share of fish too. The mayfly hatch is still going so make sure you have some mayfly nymphs and dry versions. The hatch normally gets going from mid afternoon through to dusk. The evening rises the last few days have been really good for those who are prepared to fish on until dusk.

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.

What an Amazing couple of weeks it has been, the fishing has been excellent, with lots of happy anglers. The morning and evening rises along with this superb weather has I’m sure been great for everyone for some much needed socially distanced recreation and a bit of ‘ME’ time.
The shallow water between the hut and the bridge has a bit of weed and hasn’t had many fish out from there. However the deeper waters and the top of the lake down by the wooded area has been spectacular for Dry flies and Buzzers. Morning and evening has been especially good for May Fly and Buzzers, while during the day BFD’s and nymphs have good success.
With the crystal clear water we have the weed has also been growing, we have recently acquired a couple of new boats and will be out there ASAP to clear it away before it become a problem.
We would like to thank everyone for holding out for this lock down to clear and it’s great to see everyone back, we have had a really good uptake of season membership by a growing group of like minded people who love the outdoors and fishing. Let’s all keep looking after the lake and keep this really great positive momentum going!
Fishing permitted until Dusk . No Catch and Release Permitted.
Cash will not be accepted on the bank for Season Memberships or for Fish Tokens. They can all be purchased online or on the bank using a Credit or Debit Card
