Fishing in the Chernihiv region

The Chernihiv region is located in the north of Ukraine. This region is located on the East European Plain, and therefore the relief here is flat. The climate in the region is moderately continental, but with a lot of precipitation. The highest point of the region is 223 meters above sea level.

Fifth part of the region is occupied by forests. There are 610 nature conservation facilities, 2 national nature parks and one regional landscape park. This region has a very high tourist potential.

Fishing in the Chernihiv region – fishing on the rivers. There are 1200 of them here! The largest rivers are the Dnieper and the Desna. You can fish in them for free. Still very pleased with the fact that out of 1839 ponds, only 160 units are rented. In other ponds, fishing is free, as well as on lakes in the Chernihiv region. The most famous are the Blue Lakes near the village of Oleshnya.

Where to go fishing in Chernihiv region?

On the river Desna! Firstly, it is a very beautiful river, and secondly it is full of fish. This is primarily bream and common roach. There is a lot of predator and a stream that can not be ignored. You will need heavy feeders and baits working on the current.

In Chernihiv region there are many free for fishing lakes and ponds. There are the Dnieper and many small rivers, there are reservoirs and canals. For fishing it is an excellent region.

Sports fans can recommend a reservoir, which hosted the championship of the Chernigov region on the feeder in 2018. This is a pond in the village of Dovzhik.

The most common types of fish in the region are carp, crucian carp, roach, perch, pike, bream, pike perch, chub, catfish, tench, trout …

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 Chernihiv 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!
