Despite the good stocks of fish, Lake Helenesee is demanding fishing territory. The deep and very clear water and the extensive weed fields make it difficult to catch fish. If you go out on the lake by boat, you should at least use an echo sounder to get a good view of the underwater structures. Tip: The passage to Lake Katjasee on the eastern shore always has the odd surprise in store. Boats can be rented in the leisure and camping park.

Direct proximity to Frankfurt/Oder and its use as a local recreation area set in a pine forest make Lake Helenesee a much frequented place. In good weather it can be difficult for shore anglers to find an undisturbed spot. After the end of the bathing season, however, things get much quieter around the lake. If you are planning a fishing trip lasting several days, you can rent one of the residential chalets directly on the main beach so as to be as close as possible to the fish by day and night.
Important note for day ticket anglers: Fishing permits can be purchased directly at the lake at the leisure and camping park. Please note the opening hours!
UPDATE: the shore area of Lake Helene (incl. beach) is closed until further notice, as landslides have been detected on individual sections of the shore.
