Fishing in North Norfolk

The North Norfolk Coastline and inland rivers and lakes provide excellent fishing for both beginner and experts alike. This is one of Britain’s best kept secrets as a ‘fishing hot spot’, with a variety of fishing available from Sea fishing off boats or along the seafront to Fly-fishing for trout on the river Wensum and Coarse fishing that is available on the other rivers and fishing lakes in North Norfolk. Some are privately owned fishing spots along the some of the rivers and private fishing lakes where prior arrangements are needed beforehand.

There is Coarse fishing for Bream, Carp, Tench and Roach available at Blickling Lake, Felbrigg Hall Lake, Gunthorpe Hall Lake where tickets are available on the bank as well as Gunton Lake and Holkham Lake and the northern part of the Norfolk Broads; Barton Broad, Hickling Broad and Heigham Sounds.

However, the Sea waters of the coast are free to fish for those with a valid fishing license; and are rich in stocks of Bass, Tope and Cod that can be caught off-shore from Wells next the Sea; along the coast to the shingle bank at Cley and Salthouse beach, where Skate and Thornbacks have been caught in the past. Good night fishing at Weybourne, Sheringham and West Runton to Cromer, and its pier, the breakwaters east of it and the lifeboat shed piles that provide good fishing for Mackerel in summer whilst in late autumn and winter, Cod, Whiting and Codling can be caught beyond the promenade from West Beach onwards to Overstand, Mundesley and Trimmingham and finally ending at Walcott and Bacton that provide good all year round sea fishing with high tides in the evening being the best time of bagging a good catch.

You can launch your own boat for sea fishing from slipways at Blakeney, Cromer, East Runton, Morston, Sea Palling, Sheringham, Walcott, Wells, West Runton and Weybourne – but check out local knowledge about the shifting sands, mud channels and tidal conditions of these coastal waters. Or why not treat you and your fellow angling friends to a chartered fishing day trip; provided and crewed by local fishermen who know some of the best spots for sea fishing in the area as well as the conditions of these coastal waters so that you and your friends or family can enjoy a memorable and hopefully successful fishing trip on the North Norfolk coast.
