Lake Fishing Permit

Fishing on Lake Sarbsko near Łeba and the Słowiński National Park requires a permit. The lake is abundant with various fish species such as pike, zander, perch, carp, bream, tench, and eel, attracting many fishing enthusiasts.

Fishing Grounds of Lake Sarbsko and River Chełst

The fishing district extends from the waters of Lake Sarbsko to the western edge of the road bridge on Chełst Canal on Kościuszki Street in Łeba. In this area, fishing is prohibited only from the northern shore of the lake – the shore opposite our cottages, which is located within the "Mierzeja Sarbska" nature reserve.

Recreational Fishing

Individuals interested in recreational fishing must have the appropriate permit, which allows fishing in designated fishing areas. To obtain the right to periodic fishing (for 7 days, a month, or a season), one must fill out a form available on the gdansk.wody.gov.pl website, pay the fee, and have a fishing card. Individuals under 14 years of age are not required to have a fishing card but can fish only under the supervision of an adult who holds a valid card. Foreigners temporarily staying in Poland may be exempt from the obligation to have a card, provided they have a fishing permit.
