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!
Be careful - you don't need SaNa to buy day permits, only for permits over a month or so - your dispensation letter is only valid for the beat of the angling club, no other.

Thats strange because we were told by our club president that if we wished to join another club or buy a yearly permit for a different water; they were able to issue us with a letter that dispenses with the need for SaNa. The thinking being that if you have already been fishing for at least 4 years, you must be an experienced fisherman already.

The guy that held my SaNa course showed us his certificate with an endorsement on it. It says nothing about this in the regulations however. Since he had it stamped on his I presumed this was normal.

Re: Carp Fishing

Hi,

i have been over here a few years now and have been fishing in illegal spots for the time being and a few legal ones (i think) but have been catching trout, chub and pike return them all unharmed. I really enjoy catching carp in small lakes and was wondering if they were any spots near zug that anyone knew about? Thanks

Here's an interesting site for any carp fisherman out there:

There's even a forum with an English section!

Re: Carp Fishing

I am a tad confused- my neighbours all fish and told me that regulations in CH are VERY strict, eg you HAVE to take a test, and any sport fishing is absolutely illegal. Any fish caught has to be killed and for the table. Is that not the case? As carps are not particularly appreciated gastronomically and very much an acquired taste (yes I know they love them in East Germany and Czech Republic, etc) carp fishing is not very popular here. Plenty of pike fishing in our local Jura lakes (Lac des Taillères, de Joux, Brenets, etc) and good trout though (brown only, rainbow illegal now in rivers).

Ittigen and Grumpyfruit, the Areuse near me is very good for trout and fly-fishing. You can buy day passes but you have to take a test.

Just to clarify. You do not need to take the Swiss fishing test to purchase day tickets/permits. If you want to buy a month or a year ticket/permit then you have to have taken the test.
Any fish caught over the minimum size and in season "should" not be returned...probably the craziest law ever passed in Switzerland...in my opinion

Exactly right !
Any day ticket waters that you can find, (I've found several) can be fished by buying the day tickets with no other questions asked. I've also found that most fisheries allow catch and release and even encourage it despite the crazy law.

Re: Carp Fishing

If anyone is interested, I have 2 carp anglers from Verbier fishing my carp lakes at weekends and one is here for 3 weeks holiday. We are 3 hours drive from Verbier and 2 hours from Nyon Geneva and are located in the Burgundy area of France.

They both said they have found it difficult to find somewhere in Switzerland and finally they found us and have become regulars.

You dont need any permits as we own 3 private lakes and are not far from the Jura. They are stocked with carp to around 48lb.

Im just trying to let carp anglers know there are carp lakes close to Switzerland.

Re: Carp Fishing

Sorry about mis-information for day permits - no test required. How about a day permit for pike fishing at Lac des Taillères, a bit more sporty than carp? You can buy permits from the bakery in La Brévine.

For trout fly fishing on the lovely Areuse river from St Sulpice (NE) to Boudry by the lake (from side of river, wading is not allowed) only 20CHF from the fish and tackle shop in Couvet and several other places, no test required for day permits.

I've tried emailing on 3 occasions asking about the possibility of weekend carping with no answer. Any idea if we can or not?

Re: Carp Fishing

I was sitting on the wall looking into the harbour, in Zürich Enge next to Bar Aqua and saw a good-sized Grass Carp (10lb or so) cruising around between the boats, my friend was looking at me like I was a loon as I was pointing excitedly.

I also saw what really looked like a good-sized (5lb or so) Tench cruise through under some boats too... tough I didn't think Lake Zürich was home to Tench.

Re: Carp Fishing

My name is Henry Lennon, I live in Switzerland and I will be orgainising a week long carp fishing match at the petit pretre lakes (www.petitpretre.com) in France to raise money for cancer research uk. The match will take place from 2nd August - 9th August 2014. It will cost £200 a week to fish, or £310 with food. £50 of the £200 will go to cancer research uk.

The event will take place over 2 lakes, with 1 lake holding carp to 55lbs and the other carp to 46lbs. There will be a max of 11 anglers fishing the match ad they will be foshing over 11 acres of water. The lakes are really beautiful and lie in stunning coutryside.

The idea of the match is too have a normal, weeks long fishing holiday just with prizes from top companies, meeting lots of new anglers as we aim for it be a social event, and it will also be filmed and put on YouTube.

I do not own or work for Petit Pretre but have fished there 9 times now so have a huge knowledge of the 2 lakes and will be able to help everyone out if they need it. So if you wish to contact me, register or even donate some
prizes for the event email me at henry.lennon96@hotmail.com and visit and like the facebook page for the event https://www.facebook.com/petitpretrematch?ref=hl

I know how hard it can be to fish whilst living in Switzerland but the lakes are only a 4.5 hour drive from Zug, so around 3 hours drie from Basel but they are really worth the drive.
Thanks,
Henry
