Pike anglers will be able to fish the Cut-Off Channel at Stoke Ferry next season, it emerged today.
The previously closed stretch - where anglers have been fined for fishing in recent seasons - will be included on a King's Lynn AA permit for the first time, but no day tickets will be sold.
Lynn AA has controlled fishing on the Cut-Off between Wereham and Denver for decades.
The extra stretch will open from June 16, amid of a shake-up in membership fees which will see anglers who fish the Norfolk club's drains and rivers paying £4 less for a season ticket, with basic permit prices falling from £40 to £36.
Stillwater prices are being increased, but most club lakes do not contain pike.
