NACA Bawburgh Lakes Fishery

Foreword to Bawburgh Lakes:

The following pages relating to Bawburgh Lakes fishery are for reference and information only.

NACA manged Bawburgh Lakes for fifteen years from 1997 until its new owners Bawburgh Lakes Ltd took ownership of the site on 1st March 2012.

We wish the new owners every success for the future and have offered them our full support and hope to be working with them to continue to build on the conservation aspects of fishery management that NACA has employed on the site during its tenure.

NACA took on the site of 150 acres, much of which was barren in places with thousands of tons of gravel still stored on the site and much of the gravel extraction machinery still waiting to be cleared, very low density of fish stocks and access to the water impossible in many areas. This was a unique opportunity for NACA and one that I sadly believe the association will never be able repeat in Norfolk, with the support of Cemex we were able to build a fishery on clear conservation management ethics without the overriding pressures of a commercial fishery, the passion and thousands of volunteer man hours given by the management team to drive the success of this strategy is there for all to see and much to the envy of others. We unashamedly will continue to display these pages and promote our association with Bawburgh Lakes as we will leave this fishery with a great sense of pride knowing we have managed this site to the best of our abilities producing a haven for wildlife and aquatic species using the site to promote the environment and introducing many to the pleasures that angling can bring, as a fishery we have achieved national acclaim, Bawburgh lakes is undoubtedly the best fishery in Norfolk and for our members who have supported us who will have valuable memories of days spent fishing at Bawburgh, friendships made and photo albums full of personal best catches to remember for many years to come. NACA has as an organization left its mark in Norfolk and in Bawburgh Lakes we have left a legacy which we hope will be enjoyed by its new owners and Norfolk’s anglers well into the future.
