Park lake was exceptionally clear all summer, enhanced by deepwater weedcutting. The lake is fishing well for the ‘back end’, lake inlet closed during heavy rain to preserve the clarity. Some river flooding over weekend 21/22 Dec following incessant rain. Lake drainage now postponed until 24th February.

Below……..our last river monitoring session in September 2017, together with some archive pics………………
Colin Spicer who leads our monitoring group writes:
“It was a very good session with specimens found from all of the monitored groups. As usual for our stretch of the Tillingbourne there were excellent numbers of freshwater shrimp. This month we also found this year’s crop of mayfly, flat bodied and baetis nymphs. Still very small and not due to hatch until next year or in the case of the mayfly in two years time. The mayfly photo illustrates the difference in size between the different age groups. There were a few caddis larvae found including some hydropsyche and as shown in the photo numbers of tiny goeridae with very large (for them!) anchor stones on each side. These will hatch next year from May to August into a medium sized Sedge fly”.

For prospective new members, 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.
