115 hectares of new fishing waters
In May, 23 fishing waters were added to the VISpas by means of the digital supplement. In net terms, this means an extra 115 hectares of fishing waters are now available to all VISpas holders. The majority of these new fishing waters are located in the municipality of Steenwijkerland, but there are also some new waters available in Schagen and Hollands Kroon. All of the updates have already been incorporated in the VISplanner.

We are grateful to all associations (HSV ‘t Voorntje, HSV De Eendracht and De Algemene Bond van Binnenvissers NW-Overijssel) and federations who share their waters with all VISpas holders. Sharing fishing waters nationwide strengthens the angling sector against potential external threats, while also offering extra opportunities in partnership with other parties, such as municipalities and water boards. Under the motto of ‘strong together’, organised angling has a policy of using the VISpas to maximise the sharing of fishing waters.
