River Wensum Lyng
Upstream of the Mill Pools at Lyng, this slower and deeper 1 ½ mile stretch of river, with a car park at either end of the fishery, offers a challenge to specimen hunters.
Containing large Bream known to exceed 11 lbs in weight, Chub running to over 6 lbs, Roach to above 2 lbs, numerous double figure Pike and the odd big Perch.
Comparatively under fished, this fishery is capped at 35 members at the owner’s request. Season tickets are £30.00 and there is a waiting list for places.
It is intended to be NACA’s next ambitious river habitat restoration project with a view to making it one of the great Roach fisheries that the Wensum was noted for in years past.
