When I started the project to restore Wensum Fisheries back to a serious carp fishery that could be considered one of the best in the region I knew it would be a long difficult process but to date the fishery has surpassed all my planned expectations we have again had another superb season and are looking forward excitedly to the 2017 season to come.
Our large 'wild' Dinton fish have really settled down to piling on the weight, they are looking in fantastic condition and have developed into large hard fighting stunning fish with bags of character placing the fishery at the top of many anglers lists and amongst Norfolk's best known historic carp waters.
As our fish are growing strongly and our fishery permits are becoming more sought after to maintain the experience of catching large stunning carp in this beautiful peaceful unpressured environment at Wensum Fisheries we intend to reduce our membership numbers this season to exclusively provide our limited membership the experience of fishing as it used to be in the superb Wensum valley.
The river is looking in great condition with a few chub being reported 4-5lbs, and with the proposed habitat improvement work planned by the Environment agency this year it’s hoped that this stretch of river will go on to become one of the best on the Wensum.
Work has already started this winter to improve the fishery and general maintenance will continue over the next few months.
As we are now planning for the 2017 season our stocking program will continue with another introduction of large 'wild' Dinton fish. These fish come with an impressive pedigree and have already shown the potential they can achieve in the weedy waters of Wensum Fisheries.
The main focus of a low density stocked fishery remains to produce a number of very large fish and we hope to work closely with our suppliers over the coming seasons to source the individual fish we require to make Wensum Fisheries a special place to be full of character and to maintain its place as one of Norfolk's top carp fisheries.
