Clearwater Wensum Fisheries is a carp lake based in Costessey, Norfolk, United Kingdom. It has a stock of around carp and is 7 Acres in size. The biggest carp is over 35lb+

Clearwater is possibly one of the most recognised names of any Norfolk lake, synonymous throughout the eighties and nineties with big carp and tench this lake was the focus of carp fishing at Wensum Fisheries at this time and has been transformed to its former glory now holding carp to 40lbs plus as this as weve moved into a new era for this wonderful fishery.

At around 7 acres and with depths of around 8-12ft the lake can become weedy at times throughout the summer months this generates the high water quality and an abundance of invertebrate life which gives this lake the pedigree for producing large fish and excellent growth potential which we will develop upon with selected low density stocking of carp while attempting to maintain the characteristic’s of the fish once sort after from this superb lake.

The few large old wary fish still present have blended well with the introduction of a new stock of ‘wild’ Dinton carp to mid twenties in spring 2014 and several large fish to over 24lb introduced in 2015, 2016 & 2017 so much so the lake has quickly regained its prominence as a serious water for carp anglers in Norfolk.

Quality tench and bream once abundant in the lake may now be fewer in numbers but can still be tempted from the lily beds and margins with the right tactics, many of these enigmatic fish have been taken this year to 11lbs plus and with sensitive stocking we intend to bring numbers back to a level that offers a perfect balance to this wonderful fishery. With good catches of roach and rudd possible on the whip or feeder and beautiful striped perch ranging between 1-2lb there is plenty of superb fishing available for the pleasure angler.

In winter the lake takes on a new apperance with the sheen of the silver birch contrasting against the stark woodland around the fishery and golden norfolk reed glowing in the low winter sun, a fanastic time to enjoy a great days pike fishing with plenty of single figure fish and the odd double these long beautiful looking pike may be small but are a real pleasure to catch.
