Airfield Lakes

Distance from Norwich: 20 miles south

Airfield Fishery is located below the town of Diss, just off the A140. It is only accessible on weekly bookings that can put a dent in your tight budget.

However, it’s the best spot with uniform depth if you’re pursuing stubborn carp. Speaking of Mustang Lake, you can even catch over a 50lb specimen. Plus 95% of all species belong to the twenties and thirties.

Catch 22 Fishing Centre

Catch 22 lets you taste open waters fishing in a protected lake full of 2000+ commons. It also contains bream and pike, but you can angle for carp only by using boilie baits.

The main lake is sold on day tickets. However, advance booking will get you a perfect island peg. Also, it features toilets, shelves, sanitization tanks, and clean water facilities.
