Where to go fishing in the Ivano-Frankivsk region?

Great idea – go fishing on the river Prut. Here there are not common trout typical for the rest of Ukraine, Common nase and barbel. Only I must warn you that over the city of Delyatyn on the Prut River there is a protected area, so fishing is forbidden there. In the area of ​​the town of Kolomyya, fish are found on numerous bays and on rifts. Here, mainly, the chub and the asp are caught.

The second most popular among local fishermen is the Dniester. In this region it is a meandering river with a powerful current, so take care of the appropriate equipment and go here to catch pike perch, pike and bream.

In numerous ponds and lakes in the region, fishermen usually crucian, roach and bream. In special ponds, there is enough domestic carp and white cupids.

I also recommend visiting the Burshtyn reservoir and the Burshtyn canal – a very interesting place for feeder lovers.

There are no salt ponds in the region, so it is sufficient to use standard fishing lines, hooks, fishing rods and drums. Currently, local fishermen usually use fishing rods, feeders and spinnings.

Attention! Fishing in the Ivano-Frankivsk region is regulated by the laws and regulations of Ukraine. All fishermen should remember that in the spring, during the ban of the spawning, you can fish in the river only in the permitted places. A list of these places can be found on the website in the “REGULATIONS” section, and also check the dates indicated by me below. I must warn you about the following:

Do good …

And throw it into the water … I want to draw your attention to the fact that now the principle of “Catch – release” is very popular in Ukraine. This is promoted by the coolest sportsmen, bloggers and TV presenters. What’s the point of this? It’s very simple: fishing is a pleasure, and every participant of the process must get his portion. And the fish, including 🙂 So do not hesitate to let go of the fish.

I do not urge you to completely abandon the use of the fish that you caught. No! Fish soup and fried crucian, it’s very cool! I just encourage the fishermen to treat the fish with reverence.

And do not forget the catch quota! During the day you can get no more than 3 kg from the public pond. That’s enough!
