Where to go fishing in the Rivne region?

So, where to go fishing in the Rivne region? First, let’s look at the places with free fishing.
You probably already noticed that there are not many lakes in this area. A total of 53. Some of them can be found in nature reserves and nature parks. Fishing in such enclosed water bodies is often prohibited. Therefore, the possibility of fishing in the lakes — you need to clarify on the spot! But among them there are lakes, in which fishing is absolutely free. For your convenience, I found this information, and I will introduce it here. In addition, guests of our country have free fishing on the rivers and reservoirs of the Rivne region.

The second is commercial fishing. Commercial enterprises are organized on an area of ​​more than 500 lakes. Some of them are engaged in fish farming, some offer fishing services. In Rivne there are enough commercial lakes for fishing. Below I suggest some of them.

And, finally, the third type of fishing, which is available in this region, is sport fishing. In this area there are several excellent sports reservoirs, both for carp lovers, and for the white cupid, as well as for the devotees of predatory fishing. There fishing is possible only on a sporting principle — all fish return to the pond. The most famous sports lake is Prilbichi.

The most common types of fish in the region are carp, crucian carp, roach, perch, pike, bream and pike perch. Less common: chub, catfish and tench …

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 Rivne 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!
