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.

GUIDED FISHING TRIP FOR FAMILIES AND THE OCCASIONAL ANGLER
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.
