COVID19 Update

Written by Admin. Posted in Latest News

Following the announcement by the government on Sunday 10th May and a press release by the Angling trust it would appear thankfully that in principle angling is to be allowed in England from Wednesday 13th May it does not however mean that all angling clubs will be in a position to open from that date. As a responsible Charitable Trust we are now in a position of consultation and guidance with the Angling trust and our insurers to ensure that any conditions set by them are met and we can fully comply to ensure our insurance is safe and valid for the fishery to reopen. The Angling Trust has issued all fisheries guidelines by which they expect fisheries to phase in their reopening, again these need to be fully considered and where practicable implemented to ensure the fishery is operating under the guidelines which the government expects all businesses to comply.

It is to be remembered that there are strict social distancing measures and limitations placed on all business operating at this time and fisheries will be no different, so we trust you will be patient and allow us time to understand the requirements this announcement places upon us to provide a safe and secure fishery for you once we reopen which looks a much closer prospect. While I’m sure our members will have many questions which we are more than happy to try and answer all we ask is please be understanding as I can assure you we will intend to reopen the fishery as soon as we can safely and sensibly do so within the guidelines set for us.

COVID19 Announcement

Written by Admin. Posted in Latest News

Following the announcement by the government on Monday 23rd March introducing new unprecedented measures & restrictions on movement to help curb the spread and impact of the COVID 19 virus, as a responsible Charitable Trust we have taken the decision to follow the governments advice fully that all non essential business must close therefore I am sorry but we will not reopen Charity Lakes Fishery in the near future.
In the governments announcement it was said the measures would be reviewed by them in three weeks time therefore we assume on or around 13th April, once we have ourselves reviewed their advice we will make a further announcement to you regarding the reopening of the fishery.
As you can appreciate these are unprecedented times and these processes are very fluid & fast moving causing uncertainty and concern throughout so we trust you will understand the need for this announcement and while Im sure you will have many questions which Im more than happy to try and answer all we ask is please be patient as I can assure you we will intend to reopen the fishery as soon as we can safely and sensibly do so.

Fishery Update Spring 2019

Written by Admin. Posted in Latest News

41.4 lee

Another exciting start to our 2019-2020 season sees many of our big carp already on the bank like our big common pictured above at over 41lbs, most of our big fish have gained weight over the winter and we now estimate at having over twenty plus fish at 30lbs and above with several of these now looking to reach forty over the next year or so just in the Main lake alone.

The future of this wonderful fishery is looking very exciting following the investment put into the stocking program over the last few years beginning to show excellent results.

The fishery is not only producing stunning carp but also the customary large bags of quality tench with a notable catch of around fifty tench plus three double figure bream falling to one member in the first few weeks of the season, also noted are great catches of bream and tench from our Long Lake, this lake sometimes gets overlooked at first glance but with carp just under 30lbs, tench to over 9lbs and double figure bream its a lake worthy of any anglers attention and can be fished on our long lake or Bronze permit.

Charity Lakes is the premier mixed species fishery in the Wensum Valley, to get your chance to experience this wonderful fishery get in touch via our membership page.

Fishery Update Spring 2018

Exciting start to the 2018-19 season sees our big Common carp on the bank at over forty pounds (pictured above)

This stunning fish was just one of a large catch of fish within the first few days to one member who also took a further two carp to over thirty pounds, half a dozen sizeable tench and a double figure bream to round off a memorable few days at the fishery. This fish is great news for the fishery as we had been expecting this and possibly another fish to top the forty pound mark sometime soon as they continue to increase their size in the rich waters we have here at Charity Lakes.

With many of our stocked fish from Dinton Pastures increasing by 4-5lbs a year it wont be long before we hope to see many others up around this size as the fishery really starts to show its pedigree to produce very large amazing looking carp.

Since opening several of our other members have got amongst the fish and with some warm weather now forecast its hoped the warmer waters will bring many more fish onto feed. The tench have been obliging to with members taking the customary large numbers of fish from the tench lake so expect some hectic sport if you venture onto this lake.

The fishery is looking in superb condition and we are expecting a fantastic season ahead as we have invested in the fishery over the winter especially with the installation of a new section of purpose built tornado otter fencing as we intend to replace and strengthen our existing fence over the next few years. We have a few permits still available so if you fancy the possibility of a 40lb plus common this season get in touch via our membership page.
