Poland boasts an extensive network of rivers and lakes from the mountains in the south and across the plains towards the Baltic Sea in the north. The river systems are generally clean and flow through forests, agricultural land and wild terrain, helping wildlife to flourish along the river banks. Favoured fishing locations include Dunajec, Odra, Narew, Bug, San, Drwęca, the Baltic Sea coast and the Mazury Lake District.
Sea fishing in Poland is also popular, with firms such as Ark Charter offering angling cruises in the Baltic Sea from Kolobrzeg.
The most common fresh water fish in Poland are carp, tench, perch, trout (pictured below), salmon, eels, zander and pike. Private fisheries are common in many areas.
