Where to go fishing in the Mykolaiv region?

Nikolaev region offers first of all sea fishing. This makes it possible to use the Black Sea and coastal estuaries (Dnepro-Buzhsky, Berezansky, Tuzlovsky and Tiligulsky). There are many passing fish, such as Rutilus lacustris. This area is one of the best places for catching this species in Ukraine.

Also in the mouths of rivers, many other species inhabiting brackish water are concentrated: pike perch, bream, carp and roach. There are also purely marine species, such as flounder and mullet.

The Southern Bug River is another attraction of local fishermen. This is the only major river in the country, flowing only through the territory of Ukraine. The main object of the fishery here is the pike, the auxiliary are the crucian, Rutilus lacustris and perch. On this river there are fishing competitions for predator fishing, and for carp fishing enthusiasts I recommend a pond in the village of Shcherbani.

In the region there are salt ponds, so go fishing and prepare special lines, hooks, fishing rods and drums. Currently, local fishermen usually use fishing rods, feeders and spinners for fishing.

Attention! Fishing in the Mykolaiv 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!
