Fishing on the River Bure at Wroxham is via boat only and this must be booked in advance as per the booking instructions below.

NUAC have an association with Wroxham Angling Club which grants our members use of one of their boats moored on the River Bure at Wroxham.

The River Bure at Wroxham is a tidal broadland river which provides excellent fishing for roach, bream, pike & perch. The fishing is good through the summer months inspite of the holiday boat traffic. Once October arrives the roach and skimmers migrate up to Wroxham to avoid the salt tides that are more prevalent in winter. At this time of year the sport can be excellent with bumper nets of quality roach to anyone lucky enough to locate a shoal of fish.

Wroxham Angling Club will make one rowing boat a day available free of charge to NUAC members.

The boats are fully licensed to use with or without an outboard, so if you have access to an outboard motor you may use it. Oars are currently not available onsite (due to theft) however arrangements may be made for a set to be picked up the day before, please request when booking.

Please ensure that you have adequate personal buoyancy aids - your safety is your own responsibility.

The boat may need bailing especially after heavy rainfall and it is advisable to take a bailer just in case they have been taken from the boats.

Please use an unhooking mat in the bottom of boats to protect fish from damage.
