“The little Baltic” – this is the term of endearment used for Lake Helenesee in the Oder-Spree region, due to its clear water, extensive sandy shores and designation as a local recreation area. The 220-hectare Lake Helenesee was created from the former brown coal mine – “Grube Helene” – which was in operation until the late 1950s. What do its origins have to do with fishing? Lake Helenesee is deep – very deep! Almost 60 metres of water separate the bottom and surface of the lake at its deepest point.

The fish stock of this DAV (German Angling Association) lake with its good water quality is mainly composed of eel, perch, bream, pike, carp, roach, rudd, tench and zander.

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.
  • Fish species: eel, perch, bream, pike, carp, roach, rudd, tench, zander
  • Size: 211.8 hectares, depth: 60 metres
  • Tenant/operator:

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.
