Fishing in Prague
Experience the exhilaration of catching a fish
There are several fees for fishermen including a 950 CZK zoning permit for fishing in Prague and surrounding areas. Then you need to make sure to only fish in permitted areas. The area around Žluté Lázně is a popular spot. You’ll need a license to fish here but unless you are going with a company.
Fishing in Prague offers fishing adventures with an experienced guide. Trips range from short one-day trips or a one week stay by the water. They will tailor the trip to any detailed request and will take care of the transfer, fishing license and accommodation. You can learn about different styles of fishing including ice fishing from November to March.
The Czech Fishing Union is another great place to learn about fishing. It is possible to join the union by taking a test on knowledge of fishing regulations. It also requires a one time 200 – 300 CZK membership fee for adults and much lower fees for children under 15.
The best way to find out if fishing is of course by actually trying it, but you could also learn a lot about it at the For Fishing fair. The 8th annual fishing trade fair will take place on February 16th – 19th 2017. It will take place at the PVA EXPO PRAGUE, the largest exhibition center in the Czech Republic. In 2016 there were 156 exhibitors and over 800 fishing brands were represented. Join almost 30,000 fishing enthusiasts next February.
If you don’t want to wait that long but want to experience a hassle-free fishing trip, you can book a tour with Prague Tours Direct. They offer a variety of fishing trips to suit your needs and can provide the necessary equipment.
Kajman.cz is one of the many popular stores to buy all the necessary fishing supplies. They have a store at Příběnická 972/16 in Prague 3 but also an e-shop where they offer great prices on fishing rods and more. Kajman also offers a fishing magazine in Czech. Another popular e-shop is Spin & Fly.
Since getting a fishing license can be a hassle, there are several places that charge you a few to fish without a license. There are many of these lakes in the Czech Republic and these three are not too far from Prague:
• Panský rybník is located southeast of Prague and offers short term and long-term stays. If you just want to fish for one day, be prepared to pay 800 CZK. For a week-long stay you can fish your heart out for 3,600 CZK.
• Třeboň is another popular fishing destination south of Prague (near Český Krumlov). A big plus is their thorough website in English that explains where and how to fish. This area is also known for the Třeboň carp that grows up to 1 meter in length (20 kilos).
• Rybářský ráj is northeast of Prague, located at Lázně Toušeň. You can fish from the shore (1,000 CZK a day, 3,500 CZK for a week) or the island (1,300 CZK a day, 5,000 CZK for a week). There are also 10 boats that you can rent for free as long as they are available.
Despite popular belief carp isn't the only fish in the sea, or in this case in the Vltava River. Central Europe has almost 50 species of fish that can be caught by fishing. You can find the specific list of fish found in Prague here. Fishing is an exciting yet relaxing sport and there are many opportunities in Prague to experience it.
You also don’t have to kill and eat the fish – there is always the option of carefully removing the hook and throwing the fish back into the water. If you want to fish outside of Prague, take a look at this map for some popular fishy spots.
