Latest Syon Updates
Latest news from Syon Park, London
So its a new year and the team here at Syon hope all our anglers had an enjoyable festive period. Happy New Year to you all!
The weather is still very strange for this time of year and we have had some double figure temperatures in December 2021, during which the UK reached its highest New Year’s Eve temperature on record, with 16.5°C at Bala (north Wales).
Today saw another stocking of quality Albury Estate rainbow trout, so this weekend should see some really good fishing. The fish are spread out all over the lake, but Brown trout have been coming out from around the bridge.
No surface movement has been for a while now, so the fish are deep. An intermediate line or sink tippet should definitely be in your bags. A shrimp or buzzer at 4-5 feet under an indicator is working well. Or try an Ally McCoist as a lure if stripping with a slow retrieve.
Syon has had some very heavy rain over Christmas so the fishery is quite muddy in some places, so a pair of wellingtons is definitely recommended!
We would like to thank our anglers for keeping the loo in good shape. Please continue to look after it.
Could day members please call the bailiff phone when you arrive at the fishery so that we can book you in and issue fish tokens.
Please continue to sign in and out of the fishery, and ensure that fish tokens are posted into the returns box.
Could we also ask all Anglers to use the sign in book marking the times you’ve entered and left. With the toilets reopened and COVID on the rise could we ask that all visitors to the lake leave the toilets how you would like to find them. Remember to give everyone on the lake their personal space as most won’t ask out of politeness. If we all do our bit we can hopefully avoid any closures like we have had to endure over the last 2 years.
We would also like to thank all our Anglers for their continued support and patronage to the Albury Estate Fisheries lakes, lets keep these great sport, recreation and relaxation venues going for all to enjoy.
This is a unique opportunity to sample superb trout fly fishing on a small still water only 40 minutes from Clapham Junction by Overground.
The lake and grounds were originally constructed by Capability Brown in the 1760s, the six acre lake is regularly stocked with rainbow trout from Albury (and brown trout in season) of an average weight of 2lb 8oz up to in excess of 10lb.
Syon offers easily accessible trout fishing for the novice and more experienced angler alike in a beautiful environment on the outskirts of London. Just across the River Thames from Kew Gardens, Syon Park is only eight miles west along the A4 from Marble Arch. The water enjoys prolific hatches of olives, alders, sedge, buzzers and damsel flies.
Open every day from 08.30 until dusk, except Christmas Day. Last Entry at 18:00.
