NACA Fisheries

History of NACA - Fisheries

In order to gain greater influence in protecting fisheries throughout the county, the association has also taken on the fishing rights of various waters, including a third stretch of the Wensum that is earmarked as the site for our next habitat restoration project and also a 1.5 mile stretch of the upper Yare.

We have also taken on the management of various still-water fisheries, including the nationally famous Bawburgh Lakes complex. Membership to all these fisheries is available exclusively to NACA members, but is separate from the association membership fee. Very importantly however, fisheries are run primarily as conservation projects or to preserve them for angling and not mearly to provide fishing for our members.
