Angling

Sunday, 24 June 2007
Angling in one of the most popular forms of active rest in Poland. Polish waters abound in many species of fish, varying in different regions of the country. The most valued by anglers, and relatively common, are pike, eel, lavaret, bleak, perch, catfish, trout, bream and tench. Polish lakes and rivers are clean and abound in food for fish that grow big and when caught becomes the pride of many an angler.

On rivers, lakes and canals angling is permitted from the banks, while on larger water expanses it may also be practised from boats. In order to catch fish on Polish waters both Polish and foreign anglers must have fishing licenses. A license may be valid temporarily and cover selected waters, or be valid for the whole country. Licenses can be obtained from branches of the Polish Angler's Association located in major cities.

The crystal-clear waters of rivers, lakes and canals in north-eastern Poland are teeming with fish. There are plenty of lakes of different sizes and in the case of certain lake-lands they occupy as much as 25 percent of the total surface area. In the Baltic coastal area, a good catch may be expected near the mouths of small rivers and inland - on the lakes and rivers of the Kashubia, Drawa, Myslibórz, and Lubusz Lakelands. Many anglers are also attracted by such artificial water reservoirs as the Zegrze near Warsaw, Sulejowski near Lodz, Lake Solina in the Bieszczady Mountains, and many others. Experienced anglers like to fish in mountain streams, where trout is the most common variety of fish.

While planning your angling holiday it is useful to get acquainted with a number of materials published by the Polish Angler's Association, which also provide information about tourist facilities for anglers.
