Taswood Lakes

Taswood Lakes

Norwich, Norfolk

Taswood Lakes is located in the tranquil Norfolk countryside. The venue offers a range of different types of fishing - for pleasure, specialist and match anglers:

Lapwing - A fascinating, mature lake where only pleasure fishing is allowed. This water contains no Mirror Carp, Common Carp or silver fish, which means the target species are Tench, Chub, Barbel, Crucians and Grass Carp

Osprey - This lake is a rare treat for coarse anglers. It offers the change to fish for specimen fish on light tackle, you don't have to worry about hooking into a big carp and holding on for dear life! The Bream go into double figures and the Tench get close too.

Kingfisher - Another pleasure only lake which looks super tenchy. This sheltered lake has some fantastic lilly pads which the fish are naturally attracted to.

Grebe - A smaller 20 peg pond which is stocked with a large number and range of species. This lake is great for beginners who want to build up some confidence and learn about fishing.

Carp Lakes

The venue has 4 specialist carp lakes:

Spring - a great starter water for anyone just getting into carping. This will be a good place to give you and your new tackle a test.

Grove - another water which should ensure plenty of smaller carp. You might need to recharge the bite alarm batteries after a session on here.

Heron - this water contains a large head of 20s and 30s.

Broadwing - this holds the venue record for the biggest carp, which was 42lb 5oz!

In addition to the fishing there is a selection of holiday accommodation. A tackle shop which has a full range of bait available means you don't have to worry about leaving anything at home!
