Fishing at Relais del Lago

Inside the Relais del lago’s grounds property there is a small lake mainly dedicated to carp fishing and even the black bass.


This is an exclusive environment where enthusiasts can pursue their carp ‘s passion in a quiet and relaxing site. In fact we found only two places: one equipped with a comfortable wooden pier where to place the reeds, and the other offers the possibility of enjoying the shelter of a comfortable gazebo.
The rest of the habitat is accurated but with his own natural appearance much like a classic English lake.
The basin is populated by a good number of fish, with several relevant examples from the weight (between 14 and 19.5 kilograms), more rare and difficult to capture are the Amur, but they can reach the threshold of the mythical 20 pounds and make the good luck and joy of the carpfisher who manage to fool them!
