Pond culture in South Bohemia

In the České Budějovice basin in the Vltava River Valley there is an extensive system of artificial lakes. The biggest is calledBezdrev. Others are also interesting for tourists, such as Munice Lake near Hluboká nad Vltavou and the Ohrada hunting lodge, which houses a museum of hunting and fishing. There are also the lakes of the Protivín-Vodňany area, situated in the valley of the River Blanice, with the well-known Tálín Lake. In the northern part of the Třeboň basin you will find the Horusice and Bošilec lakes.
Most lakes (and the biggest ones), however are in the immediate area of Třeboň. One of the great works of Štěpánek Netolický is the 45-kilometre Golden Canal. Jakub Krčín was responsible for the building of many South Bohemian lakes for breeding fish, including Svět (World) and Rožmberk (the biggest). Another remarkable piece of construction work is the 13.5 kilometre New River canal.It links the rivers Lužnice and Nežárka.
The local lakes are an ideal place for those who like water sports as well as fishing. Many of these lakes, especially those near the towns, have beaches and swimming areas, which have been used for recreation for decades. There are also camps and other water reservoirs near the lakes. Many nature trails and marked paths for cyclists and hikers lead by the lakes. Of great interest to tourists in autumn is the fish harvest, which takes place in October and November. The fish farmed in South Bohemia constitute an important part of the menu in local restaurants. You will find carp, pike and eels on the menu and accompanied by beer from the South Bohemian breweries such a meal can be a true cultural experience. Part of the exhibitions in the Prácheň Museum in Písek and in the museum in the Ohrada hunting lodge near Hluboká nad Vltavou are devoted to fish farming.
Information concerning fishing permits, fishing areas, fish harvests, water conditions on the rivers and campsites is available at the respective information centres.
