OK !
I just got in contact with owner of the lake in Mooseedorf near Bern.
If you buy an annual permit, (Chf 110.-) you can start fishing from the 15th of April. Day tickets, (Chf 28.-) can be bought from the 1st of May.
He does not require you to obtain and pass the Fishing exam to fish his water.

I suggest we go Saturday the 1st of May or Sunday the 2nd.

Let me know!
Sounds good to me, just got permission so I'm in!! Let me know what sort of tackle and tactics are best so I can overpack accordingly! Sat. would be better for me.

Re: Carp Fishing

Hi
I just found this thread tonight.

We moved to Crans Montana in November 2008. The one thing i miss and have not been able to find locally is a good carp lake. I have brought all my gear but so far it has not been out of the box.

Is there any carp fishing in Valais? Anything near Sion or Sierre.

I dont mind traveling to a nice lake with the chance to catch big carp. Is there anything within an hour or so of Sion. I think Bern etc is too far for a day trip, but might be something i have to do over night. If i do decide to take off for a couple of days am i better heading into France.

Carp fishing is the only thing i am missing from the UK.

Many thanks for any help.

Hi Gary
Welcome to the thread

I think you've moved to the region of Switzerland that has the least carp fishing opportunities possible!!

I would suggest the end of lake Geneva. I've seen french forums where the French carpies have been talking about how to takle a lake of that size. They all were saying that the margins were the best bet.

Otherwise, take the train through the mountain and go to lake Thun !

As for missing carp fishing in the Uk, join the club !!

I've only fished it once for an afternoon, but i gather it reacts well to classic tactics. No need for kilos and kilos of bait.
I only use 2 rods so i dont know if they have a limit. If your German is better than mine, check out their site: http://www.fische.ch/fb.html

Here's a google transaltion of the lake rules:
Fishing boat to the shore fishermen should be a minimum distance of
30-50 meters comply
Shore fishermen also comply with this throw distances
A landing net (network) is essential for any sport fishing equipment
Avoid noise in the lake (loud radios, calls, etc.)
Motor vehicles are on the available parking area (beach, Lysstrasse,
Boat rental). Driving on the dirt tracks around the lake is prohibited
Before leaving the shore or a rental boats are great places to collect all waste
and supplied to a proper disposal
Glass containers are available in Moosseedorf
thank you for your increased efforts in the areas of environmental protection will
Fishing rights owners and their employees

Oh, and there's a 2 rod limit.

Re: Carp Fishing

Well, Solates, Polecat and I went fishing to the Moosee lake on Saturday.

In my opinion it's a nice lake with a lot of potential. Sadly lacking in Swims.

Despite the Rain solates managed to catch a 23lb Grass carp! (Nice fishing mate)
Polecat and me were blanking right up until the last minute. I managed a 1lb Bream with minutes to spare before packing up! (The pineapple pop ups never fail). Better than a blank i suppose.

Can't wait for the next trip guys.
Give us a look at your photo Solates!!!

Re: Carp Fishing

I am not interested in fishing but why not try a lake in Berlin or Spain.

OK, you asked for it.......incidentally this is the biggest Grass Carp I've ever caught, an extremely powerful species built for short bursts of speed!

Re: Carp Fishing

we had a great day out and it really reminded me of what I used to love about fishing.....I'm pretty sure the missus wont approve!

Thanks again for putting that together Marcus and I can't wait for the next episode.

Re: Carp Fishing

Gents!

I am back to Lugano. The ban for carp fishing in Ticino is still in place. Is it the same in your cantons?

Meanwhile, I go trout fishing and just love it!

Re: Carp Fishing

Hi all.

I went and fished this lake that i gave the details of in the other topic that you can find here: http://www.englishforum.ch/sports-fi...rp-venues.html

Its a nice little lake, very quiet and secluded. The permit was easy to buy and no fuss about that stupid catch and release law.
I got talking to one of the guys there who happened to be on the club commitee. He told me that they close an eye to catch and release seeing as the younger members are nearly all pro "No kill".

The current lake record is 36Lb, it was 52lb till some flooding in 2004, and that fish has never been out since. So is probably living in a river now!

Boilies are bieng used more and more but the older members still use natural baits.

The yearly permit can be purchased without having to become a club member.

All in a one of the better lake's i've fished so far in CH!

I would join you one day I have a license for Ticino but do not mind traveling to Zurich. If I can get a license - count me in.

Hi Marcus

I don't want to be a spoiler, but do you have a fishing (Driving type) license.

A worm, a hook, a cord, a tail - and down to the lake. For many people, fish in the wild pure relaxation. Soon, however, must deliver a good piece of intellectual work, who wants to move the fish to the fillet: From 1 January 2009 is required of those who want to catch fish or crabs to Swiss waters, a competence-proof!

This license must purchase the fishermen to fish in a course - at least if they want a patent which is valid for longer than a month. Some cantons require so already.
The training requirements are based on the various patent classes.

The training requirement should come above all to the good fishing, animal cruelty can be prevented on the banks: if you want to fish, also know as he has to deal with hunting equipment and animals. The Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN) heads the the new welfare law from which even the use of fish assumed to animal welfare legislation.
(AP bih /)


After you have one you can buy a fishing permit. I live near Mooseedorf but I don't know of any fishing shops near here. If I see something I will let you know.

You have to translate this website I am afraid,
it is about getting the fishing (driving) license,

Hi Ittegen

I hope you dont mind me posting the PM you sent me. I think there are some points that you bought up that everyone can learn from.

Firstly if you have been a member of a fishing club from 2005 or before, they can issue you with a letter that dispenses you from having to pass this permit. (Thats my case).
Secondly in some cases where the lakes are privately owned and run, the owner or club may choose to wave the need to hold the said permit before buying a fishing licence from them. (I have found at least 3 locations where this is true).
Thirdly, and this may be of use to you , there is a great shop on the main road through Mosseedorf called Drill point. www.drill-point.ch

Thanks for your input!

Re: Carp Fishing

Thanks Marcus, I don't fish but a friend of mine was heavily fined, for fishing in the wrong place, and he had a permit!

I wasn't sure if you knew about the "Patent" requirement.
