Fish species

The Netherlands has healthy and varied fish stock. This automatically means that we have something to offer for every kind of angler. We have listed the Netherlands’ major sport fish species here – along with the best techniques to catch them. Then there’s also the special fishing calendar, which in a glimpse shows the best months to pay a visit to the Netherlands to catch your favourite fish.
