Fishing, Norfolk Broads, River Bure, Wroxham, local fishing information

Wherry cottage  (No: 25) is perfectly positioned for the fisherman, being the Peninsula Cottage closest to the waters edge on the main River Bure.  Fishing is private for the Cottages only, and is allowed within the marina, as well as along about 100m of the main river Bure.  As the cottage is available all year round this is ideal for winter fishing (often the best), and at cheapest rates.  Fishing is not allowed in the closed season (Mar 15- Jun 15), and of course a National Rod Licence is needed.  Locally this is available from the Post office in Londis in the shopping precinct.

Of course you will be tempted to try your luck at other spots on the river or out in the middle of the broads, or under the shade of river bank trees.  For these you can hire day boats by  the hour, half day, day or for your whole stay (Hire rates very cheap in winter) and keep your boat at the cottage’s free mooring right outside the cottage.  Picnic boats are particularly good as they have cooking facilities for hot snacks and a toilet. If you go a short distance up river, going under Wroxham Bridge you come to several miles of very quiet river with woodland both sides giving an “Amazon” feel.  Just a few minutes from the bridge a left turn enters Bridge Broad, a very small, quiet broad, favoured by locals.  Going downstream beyond the picturesque thatched private properties you come to Wroxham Broad, one of the biggest with huge open space to down anchor and fish where you please.

Useful local information

Fishing parties are very welcome at No:25.  Please store your tackle and any muddy / wet items in the entrance hall where space has been specially kept for this.  Please tell us about your fishing experience on our Angler’s Tips page.

There is an excellent tackle shop in Wroxham, within walking distance, which sells a full range of tackle and accessories and a wide variety of baits.  The staff are also excellent for local advice on what baits are good now, and the best places currently to fish.

National Rod Licences can be obtained from the Post Office in Londis in the shopping precinct in Wroxham.
