Located in the municipality of Storkow, the chain of lakes called Groß Schauener Seenkette comprises a total of six shallow water lakes and has been subject to the special regulations of the nature reserve of the same name since 2000. The ecology of the lakes and surrounding area is impressive: bittern, great crested grebe, mute swan and osprey are to be found here, and the lake chain is also a resting and wintering area for numerous migratory bird species. But there are also grass snakes, common toads and water frogs to be seen here, as well as otters and beavers. Water lilies, pond lilies, water irises, sundews and royal fern thrive here – to name just some of the flora that occur in the lakes and their adjacent wetlands.

There is an equally rich diversity of species under the water. Practically every Central European fish species of interest to the angler occurs in Lakes Schaplowsee, Großer Schauener See, Großer Wochowsee, Großer Selchower See, Schweriner See and Bugker See – covering a total surface area of some 1,000 hectares. The main species are eel, pike, carp and zander.

However, protection of the Groß Schauener Seenkette and the surrounding areas has a definite impact in terms of fishing rights: fishing from boats is limited to the waters of Groß Schauener See and Alter Wochowsee. On all six lakes, fishing is only permitted from certain bathing sites that are designated in the Groß Schauener Seenkette Nature Reserve regulations. 
  • Size/depth: 960 hectares, 4 metres
  • Tenant/operator: Fischerei Köllnitz
  • Fish species: zander, pike, tench, common bream, other whitefish
  • Sale of fishing permits: Hofladen der Fischerei Köllnitz


There’s no reason to be intimidated, however. Fischerei Köllnitz is located on the western shore of Lake Großer Schauener See, with an adjoining hotel, restaurant – and fishing museum. Here you can see various specimens of the fish species that occur here. The fishery also issues fishing permits and provides rental boats.

On the premises of the fishery you can lower your rowing boat into the water and cast your fishing rod in the area marked with buoys – about 150 hectares of water! On average you can expect to find a water depth of two metres in this lake, and there are good-sized zander to be had here. The largest specimens caught here have weighed nearly ten kilos. Eels measuring as much as 90 centimetres and more as well as heavy-duty carp are often caught in Lake Großer Schauener See too – despite the ban on nocturnal fishing.

Only club members are allowed to fish from the boat on Lake Alter Wochowsee, and there are no shore spots. A noteworthy feature of Lake Alter Wochowsee is the island at its southern end. In the period from March 1 to July 15 each year, visitors are required to keep a distance of at least 200 metres; entry is prohibited all year round. The reason for this is that the island is densely populated a cormorant colony. In the other waters, fishing is limited to a few designated spots. Admittedly, there is little space for anglers in the Groß Schauener Seenkette Nature Reserve. Species preservation has priority here – as do animal and nature conservation.
