Fishing sites

Post by Paulmold on Mon Aug 21, 2017 8:36 pm

After a gap of about 20 years and having recently stayed at St.Neots by the river and watched a few campers fishing, we've decided we'd like to fish again. Still got the tackle in the garage. The C&CC used to have a page of CL's with fishing on site but that page is no longer in the latest book. The CAMC only list  'fishing within 5 miles'. We would prefer to find sites with fishing on site. I know Ukcampsites have a list but wondered if we have anglers on here and do they know of any sites. We don't want specimen fish, just casual fishing please.

Our friend who has just organised a forthcoming trip for us all to Northumberland (can't wait!  up!) is a very keen fisherman.

I'll ask him tomorrow Paul, and post if he has any suggestions.

P.S. Have sent him a WhatsApp but he hasn't read it. Probably down the pub! Whistle1 

He will reply tomorrow I'm sure, and I'll pass on any useful info.

For many years I have combined camping with fishing. I have toured Devon and Cornwall a few times and Ireland twice. Stopping only on sites with fishing. Unfortunately I havnt saved any links to the sites but if i can remember any names will let you know.
Below is a list of fishing sites I have used in recent years. I highly recommend the top one Springwater lakes. I liked it there so much I had a caravan there for 3 years!

Forgot to say.....Springwater lakes only open March 1st to end of October.

This summer I planned to head towards Norfolk, fishing on the way. Only made it to the first one then the van broke down and had to come home but here are the sites I was going to try.

Thanks Landyman, I'll work my way through their websites. I'll then store them in my 'virtual brochure' on Ukcampsites (a great little feature).

Morning Paul

Rather than specific recommendations my friend suggests you go onto [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]  

They have a comprehensive filter facility so you can search for "Campsites with fishing" anywhere in the country as the fancy takes you. I notice it includes French campsites, so it may also be useful when you are on holiday over there.

Hope this helps

I know the feeling Frank. That's why I used the phrase 'casual fishing'. Like all the anglers we watched at St.Neots, we just have a shoulder bag and rods. I never have understood why the guy with a mountain of equipment should catch more than this neighbour with just a shoulder bag. After all the fish only see the bait.
I've treated us to a pair of cheap telescopic rods so they can live permanently in the van. Other than that we already have the rest but having looked around our local tackle shop, it's amazing just how little tackle can cost these days. God knows how they make a rod for £7 in China Inc post.

Thanks Dave. I'm already aware of that. Problem with it is, it includes CAMC CL's that are listed as having fishing within 5 miles. I prefer to have it on site. The good bit is, it does break it into counties which helps, I just have to read each listing and filter it.

The trouble is Paul, that a lot of the cheap stuff is cheap - rather than inexpensive. I don't believe that everything made in China is rubbish, but some is, a bit like Japan a few years ago. 'Made in Japan' meant cheap and nasty, nowadays it means 'highest quality'.
Keep an eye on your rods for splitting.
