Fishing in the Danube Delta

( 1 user review )

The Danube Delta is a 2,100 sq miles wildlife reserve, home to 160 kinds of fish and 300 species of birds. It is the second largest delta in Europe and the best preserved.

Dress accordingly, with waterproof clothes, a cap, equipped with a water can, mosquito lotion, sun lotion and a first-aid kit, and you are ready to go. There are many places form where you can rent a boat and fishing equipment. From the 160 species of fish, the most common are pike, pike perch, carp and the cat fish, which is also the biggest fish in the Danube Delta. The biggest cat fish ever caught was 400 kilograms, and frequent captures are from 5 to 20 kilograms.

If you would like to go on a fishing tour, the perfect time to do this is from June to March. In the summer, the weather is hot and dry, in September and October pleasantly warm, though cool at night, and in the winter it's cold and dry. The fishing tours are based on staying on a small floating houseboat, moored on the Sfântu Gheorghe branch. All meals are provided during the stay, and of course they are based on fish.
