NACA Bawburgh Lakes Fishery




NACA Bawburgh Lakes 1997-2012

Situated on the outskirts of Norwich this mature gravel pit fishery includes seven lakes and 1.5miles of the Upper River Yare. The three specimen lakes include Bawburgh Lake (20 acres) Colney Lake (28 acres) and Lodge Farm Lake (29 acres) stocked with carp to over 40lbs, pike over 30lbs, tench over 12lbs and bream to over 18lb.

Four smaller lakes cater for match and pleasure anglers and are well stocked with roach, rudd, carp, bream, perch and tench of various sizes. The river provides intimate fishing for chub roach and dace.

For better detail see the main Bawburgh Map with its zoom and interactive facilities.

Welcome to NACA/CEMEX Bawburgh Lakes Fishery. Norfolk Anglers Conservation Association (NACA) was founded in 1986 with the objective of protecting and conserving Norfolk’s fisheries. As part of this objective the association has taken on a small number of ambitious fishery projects around the county, one of which is managing the development of Bawburgh Lakes into a premier fishery on behalf of its owners CEMEX Ltd. Since opening the site for angling in October 1997 this fabulous fishery has enjoyed growing popularity with the structure of permits sold changing at various times with the objective of finding a balance between the income the fishery can provide and its sustainable conservation interests, without which the pike fishing in particular would be spoiled. During this time the emphasis of the fishery has shifted from providing day-ticket access to being run on a limited membership basis.

Provision of permits is available to NACA members only and includes Full Permits (valid March to March the following year, dates vary to allow maintenance work to be carried out) which allow the member to fish all the Lakes at the fishery, and a Small Lakes Permit valid for the same period which restricts the member to three smaller lakes and river. There is also a bird watching permit. All permits are competitively priced for this region with concessionary permits available for Children OAPs and Registered Disabled. Children under the age of 14 are free but must be accompanied by a responsible adult Full or Small Lakes member at all times. Three rods are allowed on the three big lakes for all species except pike fishing, which is restricted to two rods for conservation purposes.
