Latest news from Albury, Surrey
Updated November 25th
Another good week with 158 fish caught with Weston and Powdermills being the top performing fisheries. Belmont lake at Vale End is currently drained and will be out of action for a couple of weeks. With plenty of unseasonably mild weather about the fish have stayed in the upper water layers and buzzers and small nymphs have worked well especially in the clear waters at Weston. Damsel, cats, nomads and humongous patterns all worth a go. Below are a few examples of the superb quality of Albury fish.
Firstly thank you to everyone for their patience with regards the fishery staying open during lockdown. The good news is that we will be able to stay open and continue fishing during the lockdown. However it is vitally important that everyone follows social distancing rules and government guidelines while fishing to ensure we can continue to fish during lockdown as we will be under the spotlight as one of the very limited activities you can do during lockdown.
From tomorrow it will be essential to:
– purchase day membership and fish tokens online prior to fishing. This will be limited to 12 day rods per day initially. No payment will be taken on the bank.
– season rods must ring the bailiff on 07976 810737 between 8am and 5pm prior to fishing to book the day they wish to fish.
– no non fishing guests.
– please scan the NHS Covid -19 QR posters that are up in each of the fishery huts.
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.
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.
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.

The last week has seen some great catches, the week started off with buzzers with green or red eyes doing well a number of fish off nymphs and shrimp, however as the week went on the fly of the week is Cat’s whiskers.
