biesbosch natural reserve


Under the 'smoke' of Rotterdam, just before the rivers Waal, Maas and Rhine confluent in the Rhine Meuse Delta, you'll find a true fishermen paradise: the Biesbosch natural reserve. The largest fresh water tidal zone of Europe is one of the best places in the world for predatory fishing.

For who?


Fishing the Biesbosch when visiting Holland is a fantastic trip for anyone who loves fishing and wants to escape for a day the tourist crowds of Amsterdam, the windmills and other touristic highlights.

For anyone who wants to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and experience the joy of catching fish, the Biesbosch is the place to be. Trolling through the beautiful nature  we will catch perches and pikes in various sizes. And it's good to know that the big fish don't know if the fisherman is an amateur or a pro. Everybody has a real chance of catching trophy fish in the Biesbosch


Did you know that perch in the Biesbosch can grow up to an incredible 20 inches! 

The real top predator in the Biesbosch is the northern pike that can grow over 51 inches big. Of course, you don't catch those specimen every day, but the chance to catch one of those is real. 

What do you get?


A day starts at the ramp in Lage Zwaluwe. If you come by train we will pick you up at the trainstation in Lage Zwaluwe and bring you back at the end of the day of course. We deliver a fully guided fishing day for a minimum of 8 hours in the Biesbosch natural reserve. We can take up to 3 guests in our boat and the only thing you have to take care of is proper clothing for the day chosen and something to eat and drink.  

We take care of the necessary fishing permits and provide you with all materials necessary to have a great fishing day. And of course, you are always welcome to bring your own gear if you like.

How long does it take me to get there?

Rotterdam - Lage Zwaluwe - by car 45 minutes and by train also 45 minutes

Amsterdam - Lage Zwaluwe - by car less than one and half hour (1 hour & 20 minutes)  and by train it will take you two hours 

Utrecht - Lage Zwaluwe - by car one hour and the train will take you there in about one and a half hour



Season runs from June till October.
