 Previous restrictions on use of club boats for Pike fishing now lifted

From Monday 19th September the previous restrictions on Pike fishing from club boats will be lifted as water temperatures are now dropping. Please ensure that fish are treated sensitively and returned to the water as soon as possible after landing. 


Suspension of pike fishing while using club facilities - 23rd June

The water temperature throughout the Broads system has increased dramatically over the last week or so. It is now at a level which has been proven to cause potential harm to pike if they are caught. Therefore the NDPC committee has taken the decision to suspend the use of club facilities specifically for Pike fishing for the time being. Members can still use the boats in pursuit of other species, however Pike must not be targetted. This takes effect immediately, 23rd June 2022. We will keep the situation under review and inform you when this ban is lifted.

This decision has been taken to help preserve the stocks of Pike on the Broads system. We appreciate your cooperation during this time.


Annual General Meeting 9th May

The 2022 Annual General Meeting will take place on Monday 9th May 2022 at 8.00pm. As usual the venue will be the Woodman Pub, North Walsham Road, Norwich, NR6 7QA. Please note there will be NO Club meeting on Monday 2nd May as this is a Bank Holiday.


Trinity Broads 'Fish In' 13th March

We will be holding a 'Fish In' on the Filby/Ormesby system on Sunday 13th March 2022. This is to replace the event cancelled due to the storms previously. The cost will be £20 per angler and includes a meal at Filby Bridge Restaurant. If you wish to take part please contact Phil Cotton on the usual number. Places are limited. Please note this is a Members only event.


Trinity Broads 'Fish In' 20th February POSTPONED

Due to the weather forecast for very high winds this weekend, we have reluctantly decided to postpone the planned Fish In scheduled for the Ormesby/Filby complex. The event will hopefully be rearranged for a future date.
We are sorry about this but the expected weather presents an unacceptable risk to our members.


Talk by Stephen Harper 7th February

We have arranged in conjunction with PAC Region 33 (Norwich) for a talk to be given by the well known local angler and author of angling books, Stephen Harper. This will take place on Monday 7th February 2022, starting at 8.00pm. As usual the venue will be the Woodman Public House, North Walsham, Road, Norwich, NR6 7QA. Entry will be £5.00 for members of the club or the PAC. Non members are welcome and the entry fee will be £6.00.
Looking forward to seeing you there.


Trinity Broads 'Fish In' 12th December

We have organised a 'Fish In' on the Trinity Broads system on Sunday 12th December 2021. This is for members only. The cost is £20.00 per person which includes a meal after the event. If you wish to take part, please contact Phil Cotton using the usual number. Limited spaces available.

Club meeting 4th October

We are pleased to be able to announce that there is a new venue for our first club meeting in a very long time. We are sorry that it is a little short notice, but are keen to be able to begin the new Pike fishing season together on Monday 4th October 2021, 8.00pm at the following location:

The Woodman Public House
11 North Walsham Road

Membership renewals will be possible on the night. If you have not joined/rejoined so far, then this will be a great opportunity.

We have been unable to meet for so much longer than anyone originally expected, it will be great to see as many of you there as possible. 


August 2021

Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control we no longer have access to the mooring on Malthouse Broad. For the moment at least, there will be no boat available to book at this location.

On a more positive note, we have been able to extend our bank fishing access to include a stretch of river on the Sixteen Foot Drain near Upwell in West Norfolk. This can be booked in the usual way via Phil.

There is also good news on the boat front, as two of our older boats have been replaced with updated craft that are now available to book at both Barton Broad and the River Bure at Wroxham.

Lastly, there is an important change to update you on as part of the membership renewal for this coming pike season. There will be a change to the way guests are processed, due to a small minority of members abusing the existing guest facilities. While guests will still be allowed, there will be a fee of £20 charged per session that will need to be paid before any fishing can take place.



It is still a confusing picture but suffice to say we are pretty much back to "normal services resumed" status, needless to say there are still some restrictions on the Trinities regarding "Killer Shrimp" and we must watch out for water temps in the warmer months (for those wishing to Pike fish) but as things stand we are still booking all available boats in the normal way and will obviously keep you posted..............
