Freshwater fishing on lake Nasser

Fishing on lake Nasser

Lake Nasser (Aswan Reservoir, Africa, Egypt) it arose as a result of the construction of the Aswan dam in the Nile riverbed. The new reservoir was included in the list of the largest reservoirs in the world. The area of Lake Nasser is 5120 km2, and the maximum depth is 130 meters. Lake Nasser plays a crucial role in the economy and life of Egypt, providing the country with electricity and fresh water. In the waters of the lake, 32 species of fish were found, and a fairly large population of the Nile crocodile lives here.

Lake Nasser is probably the best place to fish for Nile bass - this main trophy of Egyptian freshwater fishing attracts fishermen to the banks of the Nile from the most remote corners of the planet. The Nile perch reaches its record size in the waters of Lake Nasser. The official record of Lake Nasser is the 176 kg (392 lb) Nile perch. The record-breaking Nile perch caught on a fishing trip with our company had a weight of 108 kg (238 lb). This fish has phenomenal strength and outstanding fighting qualities, it will test you and your gear to the limit, using powerful attacks and beautiful attempts to free itself from the hook. Popular trophies for fishing on Lake Nasser are also, Tiger fish, several types of catfish, including the legendary giant catfishWundu (our record - 40kg.) and catfishBagrus (our record is 34 kg.) and two species of telapia, which make up the main food base for both lake predators and humans.

Tiger Fish (tiger fish) here it does not reach the same size as on the Zambezi, its weight usually does not exceed 5-7kg, but this does not make fishing easier. Active resistance and acrobatic jumps will bring a lot of fun. There are 18 species of tiger fish found in the lake, two of which are of interest for fishing. If you are lucky enough to catch a Wundu catfish on an Egyptian fishing trip, then you will have the opportunity to experience a truly unforgettable battle.. Local catfish are caught mainly by trolling or at night on dead or live bait.

Season: Fishing is possible all year round, but the best time is from mid-March to mid-May

Fishing year on lake Nasser is divided into two seasons: summer and winter.

Summer season - the second half of March to the end of September. At this time, the Nile perch rests in shallow water, at depths of 2-6 m. This is due to the fact that at this time there is a spawning tilapia, and after hatching there is accumulated a huge kolichestvo fry. This is the best time of year for fishing from the shore. Trolling at this time gives good results with smaller lures. August and September are very hot months and the reason we do not recommend.

Winter season fishing - from October until the end of February. During this period, the lake is at the highest level, and perch kept at great depths, gathering groups in anticipation of spawning, which occurs in January and February. In the winter season fishing is usually by trolling over underwater promontories, and sunken Islands. In October it's still possible fishing from the shore, but later she did not give result, and it comes to trolling and vertical jig.

If you want to catch the really big fish, the winter season is the best choice. The summer season provides a wider range and greater number of fish, but the average trophy size on the summer fishing is generally less than winter fishing. However, summer fishing on lake Nasser remains interesting and exciting, besides,speaking of small Nile perch, are species weighing 10 to 20kg.
