I know its close season for freshwater fish but I am taking my children on a boat for a week & wondered if there are any types of fishing I can do anywhere on the broads ? e.g. can you fish for saltwater species as you approach Gt Yarmouth or what about trout ?
Two desperate 9 year olds are keen to find out so please let me know. Many thanks
I think there are some stillwaters near potter heigham that are open all year and they are advertised in latherms tackle shop and also there is a lake on the way to loddon down the river chet both are coarse fishing lakes.

All the tidal rivers are closed to fishing for the closed-season. It is a strange situation regarding "sea" fishing, which doesn`t have a closed season. It is open to debate how far up the tidal reaches you CAN fish for "sea" fish ie. cod, whiting etc. I`m not sure what the rules are for the Yarmouth area. I believe (word of mouth) that on the river Mersey, "sea" fishing is allowed up to 5 miles inland, after that it is classed as "coarse" fishing, and therefore needs an Environment Agency licence, and may well have a closed season (16/3 - 15/6)
Jonboat. A bad days fishing is better than a good day at work !
5 mins walk away from the broads authority free moorings at stokesby there is a little carp pond opened up. its called home pond. carp upto 20lb for £5 day ticket and its open all year round. hope this helps
