History and origins of the lake
Current swamp of Ladzeni was once known as Catherine Moorland - 400ha of peatlands. During the times of Soviet Union the turf got depleted, and thanks to river of Misa and damp terrain, place flooded and there was a lake. It is also npow known as a Swamp of Ladzeni. It has a water flow because it flows to river of Viksna. That is how 360ha large water mirror got formed.
This lake has a lot of space and no angler has to interfere with another one. Fishing here mainly goes from the boat, as the coast is swampy and difficult to access. But if you succeed you can find a drier coastal location too.
In the swamp lake of Ladzeni you can catch a variety of Latvian fish, except carp and eels. Main speecies in the lake are pike and tench. Each year the base of fish is renewed with 100,000 to 150,000 juvenile fish. So you can be sure that the fish stocks will not be depleted.
We are offering fishing since 1996. We have seen that in recent years some large crucian carps and breams have been caught. The biggest fish ever caught and known to us is a pike - 13kg heavy, in its stomach there was another pike of 3kg. Biggest bream ever cought was 2.8kg.
Fishing season here starts in May 1, and continues also in winter when the lake is covered with ice. So, summer fishing fans are welcome as well as ice-fishing enthusiasts. In April fish is on vacation - so it means no fishing for a whole month. Fishing starts again in May.
Every year in the second week of May there is a fishing competition „Līņu Paps” It is organized by..., and winners of this competition are awarded with prizes. The event is in memory of xx who loved Swamp lake of Ladzeni very much, but passed away because of the cancer. His doughter is a participant of this competition every year, and she always wins, because she is now familiar with the lake and its inhabitants.
