The River Hitch in Heacham runs through North and South Beach in Heacham. This river is stocked with Roach, Rudd, Dace, Chub, Bream, Tench and Carp and is one of the few places where it is free to fish from the footpaths.
The Kings Lynn Angling Association have invested heavily in
Shepherds Port which is in Snettisham (next door to Heacham) and their development of the fishing areas has
resulted in providing the RSPB with a car park and the Association
with four fishing lakes. Two lakes are owned by the Association, and
two are leased by the Association from The Sandringham and Ken Hill
The area is such that if the fishing is not so good the wildlife can be enjoyed with Red Kites, Marsh Harriers, Kestrels and Barn Owls just some of the visitors. The site that can be and often is enjoyed by the whole family.Toilet facilities provided during the months May to October.
In nearby Hunstanton, Searles Fishing lakes are a popular choice for local fishing. Located next to the bowling green and Searles Country Club, the two fishing lakes are linked by a cascading weir. Stocked with rudd, roach, tench and carp up to 18lb. Full day, half-day and hourly tickets are available, with the lakes open daily from 8am (rules and conditions apply, no keepnets or barbed hooks).
Deep sea fishing trips off our coastline are also offered from time to time subject to conditions.
