Enjoy your fishing vacation in Gražutė Regional Park. More than 70 spectacular lakes in beautiful natural surroundings are waiting for you. Antalieptė Reservoir (1911ha), Luodis (1320ha), Asavas and other lakes are enriched with catfish, eels, pike and pikeperch. Here you can be certain of a catch because Gražutė Regional Park is participating in a project Fishing Paradise. In the Fishing Paradise you may not only go fishing, but also try the culinary heritage of the region – fish cheese, or visit probably the furthest museum from the ocean – V. Žilinskienė’s Sea Museum! Left your rod at home? No need to worry, you may buy one in the nearest fishing shop or ask the owners of the rural tourism resort.
,,Caught one –release one!''
Share the joy of fish biting with other fishermen. Fishing Paradise is especially waiting for fishermen sharing the attitude ,,Caught one – release one''. More than one hundred marked 1 and 2 kg pikes were released into Lake Luodis in 2014. A fisherman catching such a marked fish should remember the code of the fish, measure its length, weight, record the moment of release and provide the data to the Directorate of Gražutė Regional Park. Your information will be used in scientific fish research.
You are allowed to catch fish in unleased water bodies subject to the purchase of a Fishing Permit. The Fishing Permit is a permit to engage in amateur fishing. You can buy a Fishing Permit on the Internet, and also via SMS, at “Perlas” terminals or at a newsstand. Fishing Permit prices: 2 days (weekend) – 1.40€, monthly– 5€, annual – 14€. The Permit is valid for unleased water bodies.
Please note that if you want to catch fish in leased water bodies, you need a different permit. To purchase one, and check which lakes are leased in certain municipalities, you may go here: Permit in leased water bodies
