Croxley Hall Trout Syndicate was formed in 2001 following the closure of the renowned commercial season/day ticket fishery of the same name. A small core of dedicated season ticket holders formed the Syndicate with the help, guidance and continued support of the previous management. Most of that core remain and new rods have been introduced by the membership when a vacancy has occurred from time to time.
Our limited membership covers a range of individuals from many walks of life, all soul mates joined together by several common denominators. Apart from our love of fly-fishing we all share an acute awareness of conservation of everything connected with our wonderful sport and where we practice it. We are passionate anglers with varying degrees of experience and skill, the respect for our quarry is always to the fore and the comradeship amongst us is something quite special. We cherish our privileged privacy in superb surroundings beautifully maintained by the estate management, shared only with the fantastic wildlife which abounds.
It is unusual to see more than one or two members fishing our waters at any one time, often there are days when nobody is fishing. Our unique login system which is linked to our website allows members to see who is fishing at Croxley Hall in real time, thus allowing members to choose when to fish to suit their personal preferences.
Our rule book is kept to an agreed minimum and is there for guidance with all the rules self governed. Our waters are stocked with top quality Trout from our excellent suppliers who provide an average weight of over 4 pounds per fish and our members have several opportunities to bring a guest angler with them during the season. To sum up we have an efficiently managed Syndicate that we are truly proud of but never take for granted.
If you would like to be considered for a Membership please go to our Join page and submit your details.
Croxley Hall Trout Syndicate members currently fly fish two lakes for trout, Willow Lake and Lodge Lake. Both lakes are fed by crystal clear water that originates from a large number of artesian wells that formed part of the original watercress farm. The artesian water oozes up out of the wells at a constant 10.5 degrees centigrade. This means the lakes do not suffer from high water temperatures in the summer and they do not freeze in the winter.
Trout thrive in these perfect water conditions and as a result the fishing can be excellent whatever the weather throws up.
From 2021 CHTS members have the option to fly -fish for brown trout on an exclusive private beat of the River Chess, a renowned chalk stream, just a few miles away in Sarratt for a small additional fee to their existing membership.
Members also have the ability to see "who's fishing" before they leave home by using our unique and simple login system. This means they can see when the fishery is quiet or busy in "live mode" and plan their day accordingly.
Most of the time our small syndicate is fully subscribed but occasionally places do become available. The best way to ensure you are notified when a place becomes available is to join our waiting list by filling in the form below and submitting it. With your permission your details will be kept on file and you will be notified when a place becomes available and invited to visit the fishery to view the lakes and our extensive facilities.

Rickmansworth is a town in southwest Hertfordshire, England, about 17 miles (27 km) northwest of central London and inside the perimeter of the M25 motorway. The town is the administrative seat of the Three Rivers District Council.
The confluence of the River Chess, the River Gade with the Colne in Rickmansworth inspired the district's name. The enlarged Colne flows south to form a major tributary of the River Thames.
Croxley Hall Fisheries is the only fishery in the Colne Valley where the three rivers run through its boundaries
