Club Waters

The Club’s waters are primarily situated on the River Waveney, upstream and downstream of Bungay, the lower reaches being tidal. The club also has several still waters, close to Bungay.

Please comply with all club rules. These are in place to benefit both you and our fish stocks.

Failure to produce a valid permit could result in you being charged a day ticket or you may be asked to leave the water.

Please be aware, if you are over 12, a valid rod licence is also required –

Day tickets.

Anyone fishing club waters must comply with Club Rules which can be found here.

Day tickets must be purchased in advance prior to arrival at the bank to fish. Day tickets are not available for the Lay-by Pit or Ellingham Hall Lake – these are “members only” waters.

Single Adult day ticket – £5, seven days – £10.
Single Junior day ticket – £3, seven days – £6.

Water closures – Club waters will be closed for pleasure angling on specified dates to allow for working party maintenance or club matches. Please check the calendar for these dates.

No Litter! – it goes without saying really, to take all your rubbish home with you.
Most of the river sections run through meadows with livestock, mostly cattle, running in them. If they eat any discarded packaging etc. the consequences could be dire for all. The animal could die, and we could loose the right to fish the water.

Health and Safety warnings:

All anglers fishing the various club waters do so at their own risk.
Anglers are advised to take care on muddy banks and be aware of deep water at all fishing venues.
All our waters are categorised as “Deep Water” with an element of danger.
Consequently the club encourages all members to learn to swim.

Please be aware of overhead power cables, particularly at Dunburgh and sections of the river upstream from Earsham.

Common Pond is situated on land to which the public has access, and dogs can run, uncontrolled, off the lead.
Beware of other people’s dogs!

Cover cuts and scratches to prevent possible infection from wildlife (principally rats) which can be found at the waterside.
