Sport fishing in the Trebon Region

Freshwater Fishing in the Czech Republic

The Czech Republic has a long tradition of freshwater fish farming. It’s no wonder that sport fishing is a very popular hobby in the Czech Republic and has a long tradition as well. The Czech Fishing Association has nearly 300 000 members.
There are a wide range of fishponds where sport fishing is organized. A lot of tourists from other European countries come to fish here.

Sport fishing in Trebonsko

The Trebon Region (Třeboňsko) is the most famous fish farming area in the Czech Republic and it offers excellent conditions for sport fishing along South Bohemian rivers and at fishponds. Every season, Fishery Trebon, which owns and manages most of the fishponds in Trebonsko, organizes sport fishing on selected fishponds.

Examples of fishponds selected for sport fishing

  • The Svet Pond (Rybnik Svět), located in the town of Trebon
  • The Hejtman Pond (Rybnik Hejtman), located in the town of Chlum u Trebone
  • The Stankovsky Pond (Rybnik Staňkovský), located in the village of Stankov, near the town of Chlum u Trebone
  • The Novy Kanclir Pond(Rybník Nový Kanclíř), located close to the town of Chlum u Trebone

Wat kind of fish can you catch in Trebonsko?

The most commonly caught fish in Trebonsko are carp. The Trebon Carp has been recognized by the EU register as a Protected Geographical Indication for its unique quality. The other examples of fish species you can catch here are pike, catfish, grass carp, tench, pikeperch, eel and perch.

In 2004, a colossal catfish was caught in the Hejtman Pond. The catfish was 202 cm long and it weighed 64 kg. The population of catfish has increased in the Stankovsky Pond over the last few years. The carp weighing about 20 kg, pike weighing about 10 kg and a catfish weighing 33kg were caught in the Novy Kanclir Pond. The fishponds designated for sport fishing are stocked with fish throughout the year.

Recreational fishing in the Trebon Region

You can go fishing at selected ponds even if you are not officially registered fisherman in the Czech Republic. Fishery Trebon, which owns and manages most of the Trebon fishponds, organizes so-called “recreational fishing”, which is for everybody who is interested in angling. You only need to choose from the fishponds selected for recreational fishing and buy “a license for angling” at the selected points of sale. Of course, every fishpond has its own schedule and rules for fishing.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need more information about sport fishing on the fishponds in the Trebon Region. We are also able to arrange “a license for angling” for you.

  1. Hello,

    me and my boyfriend would like to go on a fishing trip in trebon this weekend. We both don´t have a license, so we would like to buy “a license for angling” for the Stankovsky Pond. Now, we wonder, where we have to go to buy it and if the point of sale will still be open when we arrive (this saturday around 1 p.m.) or what the opening hours are of these places?

    Thank you very much!
