The Sections of the River Yare

The GYNCAA stretch of the River Yare between the Boards and Langley Dyke can be accessed via two tracks. Pegs 61 to 115 is accessed via Bradshaw Loke and 116 to 170 is access via Monks Loke down to Langley Pump.

Over the years fishing pads have been created on all of the pegs (except 127 to 132 where a hard bank is present) in order to make access and fishing more comfortable and protect the bank from erosion.

There are on some occasions livestock on the banks so we ask that all anglers are vigilant in keeping all gates closed at all times.

Below you can find an interactive Google map showing the pegs, sections, access routes and parking for the River. 

The Boards & Jungle – Pegs 61 to 83

This bank is to the left of the Bradshaw Loke Car Park, the first peg through the gate is 83 stretching along the bank to peg 61.

Pegs 61 to 72 are on a piled bank (the boards) while pegs 73 to 83 (the jungle) are situated in the reeds and most methods including pole, feeder and stick float will produce either good roach to 2lb, skimmers or bream to 5lb.

All of these pegs have fishing pads.

Bradshaw Bank – Pegs 84 to 92

This bank is situated to the right of the Bradshaw Loke Car Park, with the first peg through the gate is 84.

In summer you can drive through the gate and park on the level ground between the flood bank and the soak dyke. You can park behind pegs 84 to 87.

Again all methods can work on the stretch and can produce good bags of skimmers and roach.

All of these pegs have fishing pads.

Sluice Bend (Concrete Bridge) – Pegs 93-117

This section is also accessed via Bradshaw Loke, just before you get to the car park turn right through the gate and drive across the marsh to a concrete bridge. Turn left over the concrete bridge and parking is behind the flood bank. Pegs 93 to 99 are to the left of the car park and pegs 100 to 117 are to the right. You can park behind pegs 100 to 110.

This section is very shallow on the inside and is more suited to feeder tactics and the whole section is renowned for big weights of bream and skimmers to 5lb. however on a good tide the pole at 14 metres can produce some good roach sport should the water be relatively clear. All of these pegs have fishing pads.

Note: as the vehicle access is over the marsh and it can get very wet it is usually restricted to vehicles between June and the end of September. If the marsh is too wet to drive over then you should use the car park at the bottom of Bradshaw Loke.

Langley Pump – Pegs 118-146

This section can be accessed via Monks Loke (Signposted Monks Barn) drive to the bottom of the track where you will see Langley Pump House.

drive to the left of the pump house and through the gate and park behind the flood bank.

Pegs 118 to 132 are situated to the left of the Pump House, 118 to 126 are in the reeds and 127 to 123 are on the high piled bank.

Pegs 133 to 146 are situated to the right of the pump.

This area is quite deep and big weights of bream to 6lb can be expected of the water conditions are right. Good bags of roach to 2lb can also be taken if the water is clear.

All of these pegs with the exception of 127 to 132 have fishing pads

Langley Abbey Bank – Pegs 147 to 170
