Where to go fishing in the Cherkassy region?

The answer to this question is the Kremenchug Reservoir. On its banks there is a mass of fish farms and recreation centers, and the waters are full of fish. Pike, perch, perch, bream, crucian carp, roach and catfish are the main fishing objects in those parts. The maximum width of the reservoir is 28 km, so the fisherman will need a boat.

The rivers Dnipro and Ros are also very promising in terms of fishing. There are many aboriginal fish in their waters. Here there are even asp, chub and Ide. Representatives of carp are well-dispersed in numerous ponds and lakes, so if you are a fan of their catching, pay attention to this moment.

There are no salt ponds in the region, so it is sufficient to use standard fishing lines, hooks, fishing rods and drums. Currently, local fishermen usually use fishing rods, feeders and spinnings.

Attention! Fishing in the Cherkasy region is regulated by the laws and regulations of Ukraine. All fishermen should remember that in the spring, during the ban of the spawning, you can fish in the river only in the permitted places. A list of these places can be found on the website in the “REGULATIONS” section, and also check the dates indicated by me below. I must warn you about the following:

Do good …

And throw it into the water … I want to draw your attention to the fact that now the principle of “Catch – release” is very popular in Ukraine. This is promoted by the coolest sportsmen, bloggers and TV presenters. What’s the point of this? It’s very simple: fishing is a pleasure, and every participant of the process must get his portion. And the fish, including 🙂 So do not hesitate to let go of the fish.

I do not urge you to completely abandon the use of the fish that you caught. No! Fish soup and fried crucian, it’s very cool! I just encourage the fishermen to treat the fish with reverence.

And do not forget the catch quota! During the day you can get no more than 3 kg from the public pond. That’s enough!
