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.
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.
