Angling is a perennially popular sport with all ages and our riverside location is the ideal spot for pike, roach and bream – either from the bank or a boat. Starter fishing kits and bait are available on our site.
To fish on the Broads, you will need to purchase a rod fishing licence from the Environment Agency which is available from every post office in England & Wales, via telesales 0870 1662 662, or online at The Environment Agency website.
Fishing from the riverbank at Waveney River Centre is free for our residents and costs £5 per rod per day for non-residents.
Note that fishing is not permitted during the closed season which is 15th March to 15th June.
Hanging in pride of place in the Waveney Inn is ‘Eddie’, a 28 lb pike caught in 1948 and which provided Pete Rogers and Alex Hallowes with the inspiration for their 3.5m high steel sculpture of a leaping pike which marks the entrance to the visitor marina. Eddie II forms part of the Southern Broads Sculpture Trail.
