Hobbs Lake Trout Fishery - OPEN DAY -Sunday 13th March 2022

We are holding an Open day for prospective members to come and look around this lovely scenic fishery.

To arrive and walk round is free of charge.

And for the one day only - 'Catch & Release' Day permits are available so you can try before you buy a season permit.

(Day ticket costs will be offset against the cost of a Season permit).

We are now recruiting new Troutfishing members for 2022 season so you can enjoy this lovely fishery from 1st January to 31st December. With your membership will come access to our superb mile and a half of the River Nar from 1st April to 31st October.

Hobbs Lake is a former gravel pit of some twenty-five acres and was first opened to Trout fishing in 2013; The average depth is around 9 feet but can boast areas of over twenty feet to the bottom, great for cooler water in the summer (see depth map on the left). Hobbs lake is a season permit only Trout fishery for flyfishing. A number of the margins are safe to wade and this is a major advantage to be able to fish the drop offs with clearance behind. We have a couple of boats on the lake for the members to use or members can use their own. There are a number of staging through the reedy margins to give access to the deeper water. Throughout the year this lake boasts some incredible hatches which sometimes frustate the angler when 'matching the hatch' has to be so precise.

This fishery offers a lovely days trout fishing, in natural scenic surroundings. Also included with your Trout permit is 1 1/2 miles of the River Nar. At it's scource it rises as a Norfolk chalk stream heading down to our section which is extent of the Trout phase of the river. The Trout are mainly small natural Browns with a few Seatrout available at certin times of the year. The odd resident big Brown (in the 4-5lb bracket) can also be located.

The Fish

Rainbow Trout - Our stocking policy is to introduce fish of 2lb plus to allow them to grow and thrive quickly in the rich water. The "catch and release policy" allows the bigger fish to get caught a number of times. The lake stock of Rainbows now range from 2lb stockies to 10lb specimens.

Brown Trout - Each season we add a few more Browns to our stock. Our last stock of 48 Brown Trout between 2lb and 3lb was in December 2021. We have a reasonable head of Brown Trout, multiple catches are not uncommon, which range between 2lb stockies to 8lb+ specimens.
