The approach is via Genschmar, and there are several fishing spots at the roadside. The deepest part of the lake (5 metres) is located at the bend in the road. If you have a small fishing boat you can discover the true dimensions of these extremely quiet waters by rowing. Large sections are barely more than two metres deep – ideal for carp and tench. There are hardly any ground structures. Due to the water lilies, you should select tackle that is slightly tougher so that a hooked fish can’t escape into the thicket and get lost at the last moment.
Predatory fish anglers will find everything they’re looking for in Lake Genschmarer See – eel and catfish at night, pike and perch during the day. It sounds promising – and it is! Pike weighing up to 28 pounds and good-sized eels and catfish over 1.50 metres in length have been caught here. In 2011, a more than two-metre-long catfish from the Oder was even released into Lake Genschmarer See with witnesses – and that’s no fisherman’s tale.
