Syon Park Fishery hidden within the beautiful 200 acre parkland grounds of Syon House, a seat of the Duke of Northumberland, only 8 miles from central London.
This is a unique opportunity to sample superb trout fly fishing on a small stillwater 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. These 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.

Day Member entry 08:30. Last entry is 18:00. Fishing permitted until Dusk . No Catch and Release Permitted.
The whole of February we are running the Bring a Friend Fishing Scheme. A great way to introduce someone to the sport! Just bring them along and they wont need to buy a day ticket and can share your tokens.
Our Trout Masters Fish Off will be held on Sunday 24th of February. A letter will be sent from Trout Fisherman before the event with more details. We will still be open for fishing on this day and everyone is welcome to come and cheer on the anglers!
90 fish out in the last week with a good number of Spartics being landed too. The most successful flies have been squirmy worms, blue flash damsels, and cats whiskers. The majority of fish have been coming out in the shallow end of the lake, especially between the casting platform and the first bench. The bridge is also holding good numbers of fish. Clarity is gradually returning to the lake after a few weeks of coloured water.
Floating lines with a 9ft leader have been catching fish at around 3-4ft in the shallow area of the lake with intermediates taking more fish in the wider section. A slow steady retrieve whilst fishing lures should provoke a take. Squirmy worms fished under an indicator at about 4ft should be left to drift for a few minutes before recasting.
Below you can see a video of the lake at night which is swarming with nymphs taken towards the end of autumn. Most look like olive nymphs but there are also a lot of gammarus and water hog louse. There is currently much less activity during the night suggesting the invertebrates have headed to the bottom and will be fairly dormant now until spring arrives.
The Duchess Gate on London Road is now open! Thanks to all our anglers for putting up with the extra walk when arriving by public transport.
We’ve recently uploaded videos of Syon Park from the Sky! You can really appreciate the seclusion provided by Capability Browns tree line when you fly over the top and see the city sprawl around us. See Lakes From Above Page.

No, you do not need to pick a day to come fishing when you buy your day ticket. The ticket will be open to use between 01-04-18 and 31-03-19. Day tickets are single use only.
Do I have to wait for my fish tokens to be posted to me before I come fishing?
We do not post out tokens. You will be able to collect your tokens from the bailiff on the bank but you will need a copy of your receipt with you, printed or screenshot on phone. 1 Fish token must be placed in the returns box for each fish caught. You may buy more tickets throughout the day either online via the mobile site, or on the bank via card payment.
Why is it cheaper to buy online?
We want to encourage our anglers to purchase their tickets online. It makes the process of bailiffing quicker and gives us the correct information every time you turn up on the bank. We’ve ended up with multiple accounts for the same anglers, this process makes sure we have no mistakes, no duplicates, and gives you more time to fish!
