Italy - River Po
About the destination
Recommended fishing seasons
The best period for catfish angling is April and May, but September can also be very succesful, even till the end of October, depending on the water temperature. Warm summer nights are also very good to catch catfish directly under the water surface. Another advantage of August-September is the realtively stable weather and water level.
How to get there
The camp is located not far from Mantova. The best way to travel from the Central-European region is by own car. There are plenty of low-cost flights (Ryanair, Norwegian, Easy Jet, etc) to the region. The closest airport is Venice-Treviso is located about 180 kilometres from the camp.
There is a strict Catch & release for catfish! You can kill other species , like pike-perch, carp, etc. but only for local consumption. Those who break the law, must leave the camp immediately.
