Holidays and fishing

Fishing satisfies passion for hunting and at the same time is an active form of relaxation by the water.Photo: J. Borejszo Because Suwałki Region abounds in rivers and lakes, it is a dreamland for amateur fishermen. It is said that you will find fish where you would never expect it to be found, and it must be true to some extent. A good, experienced fisherman knows very well where fishing is good. Anyway, the fishermen who live in Suwałki-Augustów Lakeland are well-informed about fishery resources in individual lakes. They eagerly share their experience with those, who spending holidays in this part of Poland, want to try their luck at fishing. Special guidebooks for fishermen may help explore fishing grounds. The composition of fish species depends on the fertility of lakes and cleanliness and depth of water.Photo: J. Borejszo These features determine the class of fishing-grounds. In Suwałki Region there are the following types of lakes: the European whitefish, the trout and European whitefish, the pike perch and bream, the bream and pike, the tench, the crucian carp lakes and lakes with a mixture of many species. Such lakes as Wigry, Rospuda, Pietry, Garbaś, Białe Filipowskie, Wiżajny, lakes of Augustów, Lake Hołny, Gaładuś and many other smaller lakes have unique fishing, recreation and landscape advantages. One can catch here the lake trout, the pike, the eel and over 200 other species of fish. Many anglers like spending their free time by rivers, with their fishing rods. The Biebrza River, which in her middle-upper section adjoins Suwałki Region, has its lovers. The Czarna Hańcza is still said to be very fishy with the pike, the eel, the perch, as well as the lake trout to catch. So are the Marycha, Netta, Szlamica and Rospuda. So, you are invited to the regions of Hańcza, Wigry and the Rospuda with your fishing rod!
