"Lake Garda Fishing is a great way
to relax and soak up the
wonderful scenery"


The opportunities for Lake Garda fishing are great and there are many places to go fishing and loads of different fish here! With a coastline of around 90 miles or 145 km, there are so many wonderful places to fish. You could also consider fishing in the Sacra river, which feeds into Lake Garda at the top of the Lake, if you fancy this type of environment more.


The water is so clear here it is easy to see the fish!





Lake Garda Fishing



No matter when or where ever you fish in the Lake Garda area, you will need a fishing licence first. This costs around 20 Euros and will give you the right to fish anywhere in Italy on state waters. You can get these from the local provincial offices.

    "Hi. Just a quick word of thanks for the site, which was a marvellous resource in planning my trip to Malcesine. The ferry timetables were useful for planning trips around the Lake (I went to Riva and Limone) and the breadth of information available is fantastic. Thank you."
