Latest news from Albury, Surrey
Updated June 1st
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.
