Re: Carp Fishing

semi unrelate, but i read an article in the UK press last weekend to the effect that carp is apparently a popular meal on Dec 24th for a lot of the balkan states, and there's real concern in the UK fisheries that a lot of carp will be "illegally" caught and taken from rivers, lakes etc to support this - is this complete rubbish? (a la "they come over here, taking our carp...") or does this happen in CH as well...? Seems a bit far fetched to me... ??

I saw pikies (not sure about my spelling there, god i'm losing my english...)at my local club venue in england trying to skewer carp on bamboo sticks once , not sure if that was for fun or for eating though...

Re: Carp Fishing

I am just setting up a company for fly fishing in Switzerland. The link below is to my website, which is still under construction. In addition to the Beginners Days, I will also be offering guided days, and the information on this will be added shortly. Check back regularly for updates if you're interested, or contact me for more info.

Re: Carp Fishing

Lots of big carp (with tench and some bream) in most ports along Lake Geneva, but ground baiting and getting them used to feeding before fishing is illegal. You'll probably have better luck up in Swiss German part - more ponds than down in French-speaking part.

Oh that sounds tempting, I used to fish for bass back home in California (a long time ago) and was always curious about fly fishing. Truth is I don't eat fish but I always did enjoy the serenity of nature while fishing.

Re: Fly Fishing

And there's lots of it almost anywhere in Switzerland. Canton Fribourg is quite good, as are Valais and Ticino. I mostly fish the Orbe in the sector of Les Clées (VD) myself, which offers 8-10 km of fly fishing for wild brown trout in a pristine limestone canyon. Lots of fly life and plenty of trout in the 8' to 12' range. Nothing to brag about, but but hard enough to make things interesting. Other good places are the Areuse in Neuchatel, various mountain lakes in the Valais (ex: lots of wild raindows along the large rocks bordering the south shore of Lac de Salanfe) and the Doubs. I also heard that the Simmental, Interlaken and Grimsel areas are quite good, but have not tried then yet.

Best,

B. Rhodani

Re: Carp Fishing

Hi All,

With the weather warming up and getting wetter (?) I thought I'd bring the topic of (carp) fishing back up again. I live near the Greifensee (Uster) so would specifically like any info, help, gossip or "fish tales" from people who have fished this lake. Anyone out there?

I have brought my tackle with me from the UK so am essentially set up ready to go! I don't have a lot of free time but if anyone fancies a session or two this spring/summer then I will see what I can do!

Cheers,

Chris

Re: Carp Fishing

Hi All

I will be moving to Zurich in August and am thinking of bringing my tackle. mainly coarse fishing stuff. Does anyone have any advice of how to get started? I hear the rules around fishing are quite complex and you have to kill everything you catch. not sure i want to do this. Anybody got any experiences to share. I am new to this forum and would love to make some english speaking fishing buddies.

Thanks

Michael

Re: Carp Fishing

Hi Michael

If you are going to be living in Kanton Zurich you can fish 4 of the lakes that i know of for free as long as it is with one rod and from the bank. Zürichsee, Greifensee, Pfäffikersee, Turlersee. If you want to fish from a boat or with more than one rod you will need to get a permit. Yes you are right about the rules not being straight forward as every kanton has it's own rules and every kanton has it's own restrictions regarding what waters can be fished. Access to the rivers in kanton Zurich is "almost" exsclusively through club membership only, sometimes you will find some small stretches which you can buy a day ticket on. If you head up to the mountain lakes in the summer you can often buy day tickets, but do check before travelling as this is not always the case and some are "fly fish" only

All the best with the move

Jon

Re: Carp Fishing

Thanks for that info Jon.

Just a quick post to add a source for the rules of the 4 lakes mentioned above.

Also, could someone with better German than me to please confirm (from the below) that you can use one simple rod/set-up with no bait (?) for free when fishing on the Greifensee. Does this mean that spinning/lure fishing is allowed but not bait fishing. I may have got totally the wrong end of this stick!

"Freiangelrecht (Möglichkeit ohne Fischerei-Ausweis zu fischen)

Freiangelrecht (Möglichkeit ohne Fischerei-Ausweis zu fischen):

im Zürichsee, Greifensee, Pfäffikersee, Türlersee:
-Jedermann ist berechtigt, die Flug- und Grundfischerei vom Ufer aus auszuüben. Es darf dazu 1 Angelrute mit einer einzigen einfachen Angel ohne Köderfisch verwendet werden.
-Köder: Wurm, Mädli, Brot, Speck, Gummischlüchli"

Actually I've already translated this text. Search the forum for Greifensee next time.

Re: Carp Fishing

May I ask what the point of carp fishing is? Does anyone eat carp? Aren't they bottom feeders?

Re: Carp Fishing

If you are a fisherman, and you like to take your lunch with you, please put it in a sealed container.
Half a chicken left un-defended beside you will be snaffled by my mutt in seconds.
Please protect your food.

Dogs should always be on lead around a lake, so keep your mutt to yourself !

The point? Its a sport, i for one always put my catch back in the lake after a quick photo and weigh of the fish.
Its the suspense of the wait, the constant changes to bait and tackle presentation to tempt a bite and that amazing adrenilin rush when your optonic alarm goes into overdrive!! .........(got a bit carried away there.)

Re: Carp Fishing

I don't know what kind of baid a "little hose" (Schlüchli) is. It must be a regional term and there's little about it on the web. I assume it's a nickname for a certain kind of synthetical bait.

Would be curious if anybody figures it out.

Its a term for latex imitation baits. http://www.fischer-shop.ch/index.php?TPL=10082

Re: Carp Fishing

Is carp considered edible? Isn't it related to catfish?
