Lakes Website



Taverham Mill Fishery is set on the outskirts of Taverham, situated approx 5 miles outside of the historic city of Norwich. The fishery is set in approximately 100 acres of fabulous norfolk countryside and boasts 4 lakes and 3/4 mile of the famous river Wensum.


Taverham Mill lake now boasts carp to over 30lb with loads of fish in the 20lb class, this lake also has some wonderful tench fishing and specimens to over 8lb are caught each season. The site facilities include, on site accommodation in the lodge, the Taverham Tackle Den shop and toilets. This along with a full time Site Manager and Fishery Wardens ensure that your stay will be comfortable, enjoyable and productive.


This lake is approximately 23 acres, and is irregularly shaped with several islands and back channels. In the summer, the lake is covered by expansive patches of lilies, which always hold lots of carp, along with beds of Canadian pondweed, gravel bars and plateaux, depths range from a few inches to 10 feet.  


Taverham lake has gone from strength to strength over the last few seasons. This season so far we have seen the lake record broken by "Alan's Leather" at over 35lb and "Moonscale" coming out at 34lb. These captures being backed up by over eighty carp in the 20lb+ bracket being banked that we know of, many of which are now over 25lb. The tench are stacking on weight all the time and we regulary have reports of 9lb fish. Season tickets are limited on this lake so ensure you get yours as soon as possible for the new season or alternatively fish on a day or 24hr ticket.


New for this season we have seen the new boardwalk installed accross the meadow it has made for a nice flat even push for guys with barrows to reach the lake with ease!



Local pubs and restaurants are located within 5 minutes of the fishery along with local newsagents and supermarkets.
