Attractive fishing grounds
Thanks to its location, Fish Farm „Gosławice” is a very attractive destination for anglers who come from all over Poland and from abroad. Carp anglers from the Czech Republic, England and Germany gladly fish here. The magnet attracting anglers are warm canals, draining heated water from the local power plant, which do not freeze even in winter. You can go fishing all year round, catching record size carp and grass carp, handsome bream, roach and chub and predatory catfish and pike.
Large fish are not absent in lakes and the largest specimens of grass carp, weighing up to several tens of kilograms are in lake Licheń. Other lakes in the power plant cooling system available for fishing include Gosławice, Pątnów, Ślesin and Wąsosze-Mikorzyn. The Farm also features lakes with natural thermal properties: Skulsk, Skulska Wieć Czartowo, Lubotyń, Mąkolno, Brdów and Lubstów. The total area of the lakes is more than 2000 ha of water surface. Due to the systematic restocking with valuable prey species (catfish, perch, pike), the number of these attractive fish continues to grow.
Permits for fishing in the waters which belong to the Farm can be purchased at the Secretary’s office located in the premises of the Company and at the District Angling Association Management Board in Konin, Wyspiańskiego Street. In the vicinity of the lakes there is well-developed tourist holiday area, so there is no problem finding cheap accommodation in numerous holiday centers and private accommodation in Ślesin, Mikorzyn or Lichen.
