NUAC have an association with Great Yarmouth & Norfolk County Angling Association (GYNCAA) which grants our members access to nearly three miles of the River Yare along the southern bank from Claxton to Langley. Please ensure that you familiarise yourself with the GYNCAA Rules as stated below before visiting.

As indicated in the rules this stretch of river is primarily a match water so please ensure you keep clear of the pegs booked for match use. Also please note that pegs to the left of the Beauchamp Arms are out of bounds until further notice.

See the Location section below for details of the main access points to this stretch of river plus associated parking information.

The Yare at this stage of it's journey to the sea is a powerful tidal river; be prepared for strong flow and depths of 12-20'. On a high flood tide you may need 3oz of lead to hold bottom so a powerful 12-13' feeder rod will be required especially if you wish to fish over two-thirds of the way across the river.

Main species are quality roach, with individual fish over 2lb not unheard of, skimmers, bream up to 8lb and perch. There are also big carp and pike present although swim selection is key for these species.

The fishing is at its best late summer through to end of September however large bags of bream and big roach are possible through the winter until the close of the river season assuming the conditions are favourable.

Any breach of the following rules will be taken very seriously by the committee and may result in expulsion from the club.

  1. Only the NUAC member is entitled to free fishing, other guests must purchase a Day/Season Ticket (available from Bailiff on the bank).
  2. Members must present a current NUAC permit when requested to do so (GYNCAA employ two bailiffs).
  3. All gates must be kept closed at all times to prevent livestock escaping from the banks.
  4. After every session all members must clear the ground of litter even if that litter was not left by them.
  5. All members are expected to be polite to other river and bank users at all times.
  6. Vehicles must be parked sensibly without blocking access to fields or other entrances.
  7. Open matches and club bookings will take priority over pleasure angling at all times. Notices are displayed to show which areas are booked, please keep these areas clear. A list of 2021-22 matches, correct as of Oct 2021, can be viewed here.
  8. No dogs to be taken onto the banks by anglers.
  9. Please obey the speed limit when on farm tracks to river.
