Fishing in Groningen (province)

There’s a saying in Dutch that goes: ‘there is nothing above Groningen!’ That saying is also quite true when it comes to fishing in this northern province.

Urban carp fishing

Wide variety

For instance, almost all waters in this province have been included in the VISpas list of waters, and as a sport fisher you are free to go pretty much everywhere you want to. The wide variety of waters – polders, canals, lakes, ponds – caters to everyone’s taste.

Pike fishing

A bonus tip for those angling for predatory fish: just take your tackle into Groningen city. You can catch perch, zander and pikes right in the city centre.
