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.
For GPS users please use TW7 6BB which will bring you to the Syon Park entrance on the corner of ‘Park Road’ and ‘Church Street’, Old Isleworth. See map below.

2018/19 season: The online season
Prices for day tickets and fish tokens are now cheaper to buy online than on the bank. A day ticket on the bank will cost £15 and two fish tokens will be £22, card payments only. If you pay online before you come however it will only cost £12 for your day ticket and two fish tokens will be £21.50.
Do I have to choose which day to come fishing?
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!
Warmer weather, increased weed growth, but hungrier fish! We had 108 out this week, mostly on buzzers, PTNs and Damsels. Fished within the first 2 feet of water with a slow retrieve for the smaller nymphs and buzzers and a very fast retrieve for the damsels. So far only one of the big doubles we put in a couple of weeks ago has been caught. At least one other has been spotted in the shallower end of the lake.
Weed cutting is due to start soon once the boat is free. Hand cutting of swims will be started this week which will hopefully make landing fish easier. Thankfully the water remained crystal clear after an intense Algal Bloom which lasted for a week last month.
We ran our first corporate event this year for the brand Barbour. As any anglers visiting this week would have seen, we laid a net across a small section of the lake and stocked fish one side to increase the chance of catching fish for the 2 hour events that were held each evening this week. A target practice area was also set up next to the netted area, to allow those that didn’t want to catch a chance to at least learn the skill of fly fishing. Over 30 fish were caught by beginners during these very short sessions, hopefully encouraging their return!
Sedge, olives, and mayfly patterns are still catching most fish off the top. There tends to be a steady number of fish rising throughout the day with a larger rise around 7pm. Buzzers, small damsels, and pheasant tail nymphs fished 2ft below the surface are taking the majority of fish that aren’t rising to natural flies. Red and Black buzzers especially are fishing well.
On Monday 14th May we participated in a schools day. We showed over 200 primary school children different species of fish that live in UK waters. We also scooped some invertebrates from the lake. We found lots of Water Hog Louse, Gammarus, Water Boatmen, Leeches, Snails, and Damselfly Nymphs. All the children also had the exciting opportunity to see and touch a rainbow trout! For the majority of them it was the first time they’d ever touched a live fish.
Last month we ran our first Young Anglers’ Day, read a report of the day here; https://alburyestatefisheries.co.uk/syon-young-anglers-day/
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.
