The area of the lake Nasser 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 found 32 species of fish dwell here, and quite a large population of Nile crocodile.
Lake Nasser is perhaps the best place for fishing on Nile perch - this is the main trophy of the Egyptian freshwater fishing lures on the banks of the Nile fishermen from the most remote corners of the planet. The Nile perch reaches the waters of lake Nasser to its record size. Officially registered record of lake Nasser - Nile perch weighing 176 kg (392 lb). Record Nile perch caught on a fishing trip with our company had a weight of 108 kg (238 pounds). This fish has a phenomenal power and outstanding fighting qualities, to the limit she will test You and Your gear, using a powerful attack and beautiful attempt to get rid of the hook. Popular trophies for fishing on lake Nasser are also, Tiger fish several types of catfish, including the legendary catfish - giant catfish Vundo (our record - 40kg.) and som Bagrus (our record - 34кг.) and two telapi that make up the main forage base for predators of the lake, and for the people.
Tiger fish (tiger fish) here does not reach such dimensions as on the Zambezi, its weight, usually not more than 5-7kg, but this fishing is not getting easier. Resistance and acrobatic jumps will take a lot of pleasure. Lake discovered 18 species of fish-the tiger, two of which are of interest for fishing. If the Egyptian fishing will be lucky enough to catch a catfish Vundu, then there will be the opportunity to experience a truly memorable battle.. Local catfish are caught mostly by trolling or at night on dead or live bait.
The climate in the region of lake Nasser, as in most areas of Egypt, tropical, desert, outcome differences in day and night temperatures. The air temperature in summer months can reach up to elevation 40... 42°C (day) and 24... 25°C (night) in the winter is slightly cooler by day 24... 25°C night - 10... 21°C. Precipitation is small and extremely rare. Summer is the flooding of the Nile, in this period the lake water is muddy, thanks to silt from upstream. Level is reduced in winter and by may it reaches the minimum mark.
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.
