Fishing in the Norfolk Broads
Although there is no riverside fishing at Rookery Lakes Cabin, it is an ideal base for fishing other venues nearby within the Norfolk Broads.
Covering more than 250 square miles, The Broads is one of the country’s best known angling regions with a host of rivers and lakes including the Rivers Bure, Yare and Waveney and numerous Broads which have gone down in angling history for their huge catches of fish such as the famous Hickling Broad, Oulton Broad, Hoveton Great Broad and Barton Broad.
Whether you are fishing from the bank or a boat, there are many places where you can fish free of charge as long as you have an Environment Agency Rod Licence as well as many privately owned Broads, lakes and stretches of river. Rod Licences can be obtained instantly on-line by visiting https://www.gov.uk/fishing-licences. If you are unsure whether you need a rod licence or what type you should buy, read our article’ ‘A guide to Fishing Licences’ for more information.
As with other freshwater fisheries which are not landlocked, the Norfolk Broads are covered by the close season for fishing which runs from March 15 to June 15. Fishing is therefore only allowed from June 16 (The ‘Glorious 16th’) to March 14. It is also worth remembering that certain areas of the Norfolk Broads are classified as Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs) or conservation areas and that fishing is not allowed in these areas.
It is a good idea when visiting the Norfolk Broads to visit local tackle shops where staff will be able to advise on the best spots to fish locally.
