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!
