Latest news from Syon Park, London
Updated 14th February
The cold and wet weather that we’ve seen recently saw only 60 fish to the bank last week. Since Monday the fishing has still been slightly harder with 20 fish coming out to 17 anglers. Less fish are rising so locating them can be difficult. Most fish have been caught at the top of the lake but good numbers are still holding around the bridge, less in the shallow end but they’re still being caught. 4-6ft has been the best depth to fish at, using intermediate or sinking lines for lures such as BFD and Cats Whiskers. Bloodworms, nymphs, and squirmy worms on floating lines fished at similar depths have pulled out many trout fished static or with a very slow retrieve.
We will regularly update our twitter feed with ice conditions on the lake. You can follow us @SyonParkFishery or keep an eye out here on the website.
The biggest fish of January was caught by Jonathan Kirk. The 10lb Rainbow fell to a hand tied BFD fished on an intermediate line at the top of the lake. An astounding month for Jonathan which saw him land lots of large fish. The 10lber can be seen below with a 9lb 8oz fish caught on the same day. Jonathan will be entered into the 2018 Troutmasters competition, more details can be found here
