|Unfortunately the lake water clarity has deteriorated and has gone green. Also there is a fair amount of blanket weed around the margins which makes fishing challenging. It is still worth fishing but if we recieve more hot weather Weston and Vale End will offer better sport.
The river section here is now open and some nice fish have already been taken around the hut area wich offers more depth than other areas. Nymphs still working best on the river but expect to see good May fly hatches over the next few weeks.
|A total catch of 71 fish taken to the week ending 18th June. Mill lake and the river sections are fishing well. Belmount lake water clarity is returning to normal which has seen the quality of the fishing pick up.
Best Bags recently – 4 fish for Charles Kyles and Stephen Street.
The river season is now open and with the addition of the new section will offer a considerable length of river to fish with a variety of slow and fast water. The new section is still a bit wet and muddy after the recent work so please take care. Small weighted nymphs will work but with the mayfly hatch in full swing, dry fly is the best option.
The new pools at Weston are now open and are called Kingfisher Pools and are located at the top end of Weston Fishery just past Wood Lodge pool.
49 fish caught to the week ending 18th June. Floating lines and long leaders still working. Flies to try will be the usual BFD, Cats Whisker, buzzers and bloodworm patterns. All lakes fishing well and showing decent water clarity.
Best Bags in recent weeks- 5 fish for William McBride, 4 fish for Jim Lafferty, R.Holborn, J.Dyer-Grymes, D.Haigh, S.Davies and G.Lindsay.
Office beat on the River Tillingbourne that runs alongside Millhouse lake is now open and offers some of the best wild brown trout fishing on the day waters.
The pics below are of Keith Allen and Keith Andrea who caught these stunning rainbows recently.
It’s pretty warm right now, but still some good fishing on offer at Park.
For lake fishing, go small with stalking flies on a buzzer theme, and small bfds, sedges working well in the evening. Lake weed now growing fast in the daytime heat, but still plenty of fishable areas.
On the beats, recent trimming keeps banks easily accessible, and pleasantly cool refuge in the heat. Plenty of browns coming to the net, including a good proportion of wild fish.
Catch results for week 12, 12-18 June, 33 lake rainbows and also 32 takeable river browns were recorded. Encouragingly, high numbers of wildies being reported too.
Mayfly hatch now just about finished.
There are currently some vacancies for 2017, in particular for our new Quarter Rod. If you would like to consider joining this year, or find out a little more about the fishery, then please contact [email protected]
A Quarter Rod (£425) enables an angler to enjoy fishing over the Syndicate water for one named week per month, on a bag of 30 fish. 42 days fishing, that’s good value at £10 a day! Any rods joining the fishery late this season can have their fee adjusted pro rata, so please enquire!
Park Fishery’s three greatest attributes are (1.) Peace and quiet compared to the busier day waters and (2. ) bespoke stocking of brown trout on the river beats. In addition, you also, (3.) have the free reign to fish over all our other waters, which is the most cost effective way to fish our dynamic range of lakes and river sections.
We are also making available this year a Company Rod, whereby a group of named anglers fishing under a company name can effectively take out a Full Rod for their own exclusive use. The price would be £1250, please email Tony for further information.
