I’ve fished a few times over the winter and caught a few fish! Looking forward to the summer months so to catch a few big carp!

It is a very nice place and the lakes have what you want. Big fish but not catching much you want old lake, carp of all sizes you want bonds lake and temple is silver fish. It is very nice and a nice place for fishing. I would recommend it for anyone!

Carp fishing
Sep 2017 • Friends
Great carp fishery in Dorking with a well stocked fishing tackle shop. Bury Hill have a good website with all the latest news. This is day ticket and is a very picturesque fishery. However the carp can be elusive. Good day out in early September.

Great day!
Oct 2017 • Family
Our first time at Bury Hill Fisheries. My husband and his father was pike fishing and they had a quite successful day catching few pikes. They decided not to rent a boat because it is limited area you can stay at, so they did fish from the bank. We did take our miniature schnauzer who enjoyed his day out too. Beautiful nature, definitely will return!

What an idyllic place
Jun 2017 • Couples
Never been fishing before but as it was a nice day I accompanied the other half. We went during the week so it was pretty quiet, I can imagine the place is very popular at weekends when the weather is nice. He caught a few and I just soaked up the sun and admired the view, watching the herons fly around like something from jurassic Park. You can also hire a boat for the day on the large lake for only £7 per person!!!!
There were a lot of serious anglers there aswell as "hobby" ones like my OH. The staff were friendly, the facilities clean and they have a little cafe too! Just mind out for some of the more feisty geese.

Great Fishery
Feb 2017 • Friends
Beautiful lakes and excellent facilities. I struck out today, but am heading back again tomorrow to try my luck.
We will be renting a boat tomorrow to get to some of the harder to reach spots and maybe increase our luck

Benchmark Fishery Perfection.
Oct 2016 • Friends
Bury Hill Fisheries are the benchmark by which all UK commercial course fisheries should be measured. Clean, and tidy surrounded by beautiful countryside and manicured lawns, Magnolia trees and hedgerows this fishery has everything (except a fish-able river frontage - but that's not their fault!). I have visited twice a year for the past 6 years or so and if you stick to the basics, loose-feed regularly you are pretty-well guaranteed a good day's sport.

Like all modern fisheries you need to concentrate for the best results and a little local knowledge gleaned from the guys in the tackle shop is useful. You can expect mixed bags from Milton Lake using float or feeder, frantic carp action on Bonds on the method feeder fished hard against the island and big bags of bream and tench on the historical Old Lake using feeder/maggots as well as a few decent carp on big rod tactics. A second rod fished in the margins often gets the best fish of the day; the water is cloudy and the bigger fish hide in plain sight here.

The tackle shop is always well-stocked with good quality gear and the loos are clean and well maintained. I've had some great scram from the cafe too but also some fairly average fare, but you don't go to Bury Hill for the food.

I'd like to give Bury Hill 5/5 but a peaceful day's fishing is often disturbed by the groundsmen's noisy tractors/chainsaws/hedge trimmers as they aim to keep the place looking tip-top all the time. Its a big, popular place and needs a lot of TLC.

Good day spent fishing. Nothing caught by either of us but still a good day. Hopefully when we visit again I will have more to report.

"Fish 1 - Breakfast 0"
Dec 2015 • Friends
Conditions weren't great but at least no rain. We got some helpful hints from the tackle shop but murky water made this a very tough day. One zander was landed. For breakfast we arrived at the 'cafe' and were greeted by a kindly gentleman who appeared slightly bemused at the prospect that the lakeside cafe (which according to the website seats up to 40 hungry anglers) should be offering bacon butties or indeed any hot food "at this time of year"(??) even though the sign and website clearly say 'breakfast served all day'. Alas, on this occasion such 'seasonal' delicacies remained just beyond our grasp. Also, their website's "legendary burgers" seem to now indeed be confined to legend, or possibly myth, because in reality they were nowhere to be seen... How silly of us to be confused by the full breakfast menu and price list hidden in plain sight atop the counter. To sum up, my advice to anyone considering Bury Hill would be to bring your own bacon.... and possibly your own fish.

Fish Milton Lake
Apr 2015 • Solo
Haven't fished for several years and went down to Bury for a day with no bait or tackle. Only costs £10 to hire rod/reel etc for the day. I started on the main lake with float tackle and maggots - no bite for 1hr and decided to move on to Bonds. I expected to catch a few small carp here but was rather disappointed - again not even a bite after 1hr; only guy catching was using classic carp tactics (semi fixed bolt rigs, boilies etc) - no-one else was catching anything. Moved on to Milton around mid-day and that's where the action started. Float fished double maggot in the margins and picked up a few small roach initially. Was feeding little and often with pellets and maggot and it became clear with all the bubbles in the swim that some bigger fish had moved in. Changed bait to soft pellets and hit the first of ~15-20 crucian carp averaging ~ 1lb. Tench moved in and out of the swim, caught around 8-9 tench averaging ~2.5lbs. Biggest fish of the day got away (hook pull) after dragging me around all over the place, probably a big tench. Didn't have keepnet but would guess total bag was in the region 30-35lbs in 5.5hrs which is probably one of the best days coarse fishing you can get for a day ticket water.

Great place and well worth a visit to the Milton Lake.
