The River Wensum

Written by Administrator. Posted in Uncategorised

River WensumThe River Wensum in this area is relatively unfished and has an unknown quantity however this 0.5 mile of slow moving river is sure to hold a surprise for any angler.

The river may be fished on several of the fishery permits available please see our membership page for further details to allow greater access to this area of the river Wensum, We intend to work in conjunction with the Environment Agency to improve the habitat in the area over the coming years, although the river already has some outstanding habitat available, this has enabled the roach numbers on the stretch to increase over the years now making this a suberb stretch of river to catch quality roach to over 1lbs

The river has plenty of bank side vegetation and over hanging trees ideal habitat for the large wary chub that inhabit the Wensum and with the stocking of barbel in the river over many years in the Lyng area and downstream at the mill there will always be the possibility of finding barbel on the stretch. Several long glides ideal for trotting the river give many anglers the chance to dust down the centre pin for a traditional mornings fishing. The Wensum is also still known to hold pockets of the larger roach that the river is famous for, try quiver tip bread flake at dusk what are the chances you may just find them here !
