The group which formed in November 2016 by a group of like minded anglers passionate about the River Wensum, following the demise of the Wensum fishery action plan previously led by the Environment Agency. The river which rises at Whissonsett to the west of Fakenham and flows into the River Yare at Norwich. This iconic river has lost much of it's former glory when it was a weekly adventure for John Wilson on TV catching prime chub, roach and barbel.

We need a new fresh approach and as with many other rivers across the UK the Rivers Trust has created a framework to support this with both EA and AT support. 

Your Fisheries has the potential to work for the Wensum and deliver a strong framework for reporting and planning.

Starting with first principles, the workshops will cover the following topics:

  • Who are your principal customers or target groups?

  • What is a Development Plan?

  • Different sources of funding;

  • Three key elements of your application: NEED, DELIVERY, IMPACT;

  • Your contribution to the project;

  • Tips for a great application;

  • Strategies for small clubs and fisheries;

  • The Angling Improvement Fund application process.

We also hope to give a brief overview of the Environment Agency’s sister scheme: the Fisheries Improvement Programme for habitat restoration and structural works on rivers and natural stillwaters.

These are part of a series of workshops being held across the country this year supported by the Environment Agency. For more details and a closer look at the Angling Improvement Fund, please visit the Angling Trust website at: www.anglingtrust.net/improvementfund

The survey undertaken between 6th-7th July by Justin Mould and team found large fish aggregations between Downham Market and Denver.

However the bankside vegetation in this area includes the hazardous giant hogweed, so anglers need to take caution when on the bankside. The agency have taken action to spray this with herbicide already, but it will remain until next season before being completely removed.

This report discusses the positive progress being made in addressing Prymnesium within the Upper Thurne and that the Broads National Park remains one of the best natural river coarse fisheries in the UK, this study into last year’s Prymnesuim outbreak has concluded.

The report is available online via http://basgonline.org/news-items/prymnesium-update-2016.html

A spokesman for a task group formed from the Environment Agency, Broads Angling Strategy Group, Broads Authority, Natural England, Pike Anglers Group, Broads IDB and Scientists from John Innes said the park boasts healthy fish populations and that the group’s focus was on understanding the life cycle and how best to deal with any incident as well as longer term management techniques.

“For tourism this remains a highly positive message with many anglers being rewarded with great catches from one of the most idyllic venues in the UK,” he said.
