Tourism and fishing at Lake Mergozzo (Northwest Italy-Piedmont Region)

Photos at bottom of article ..

Et's just start by saying that if there is some outspoken reader of No Kill abstain from continuing reading. Most VCO fishermen are accustomed to eating fish and even more so keeps my friend Ruggero having a Hotel / Restaurant where freshwater fish is needed and it is illogical to keep them back because he also money Do not throw it away. The lake is very clean because it is forbidden to go on a boat with an explosive engine and you can relax in special areas or in the garden that Hotel 2 Palme reserves to hosts.

Lake Mergozzo is a splendid waterfowl surrounded by forests and dominated by Mount Orphanus; Formerly it was joined to Lake Maggiore, the so-called Sinus Mergotianus. Then the floody floods of Toce have caused detachment. The tributaries of the lake are the rio Rascina and the rio Valle dei Nocci. It is possible to drive only the most east shore on the state road leading to the homonymous country while the opposite side is engraved by human presence only by the railway. To the south is a beautiful canneto and to the north the country is characterized by a small but pretty piazzetta where a secular olm reigns.

Currently the connection between the two basins is through a small channel almost 3 km long and the water flows from the Mergozzo to the Verbano since it is elevated compared to the Major of about 1 meter. The length of the basin is about 2.35 km, the width of just over a kilometer, the circumference of 6 km, the maximum depth is 74 meters, the volume of water is 89 million cubic meters. It is one of the cleanest lakes in our peninsula due to the lack of industries on the banks. Fishing is profitable especially from the boat, even though it leaves space on the shore in the homonymous country and in some places along the provincial. Fishing in the canal is very difficult because of the poor depth of water and the widespread cannons but there are discrete picks and the rare swabs of the inflamed dung that go away if you are not prudent in the approach. It only lacks rowing.

Populated with carp, which also reaches extra weights, but which on average touch 10/12 kg, is a great alternative half for carpfishing lovers. A great place is about a kilometer from the village where a pitcher is entered and flat and grassy banks offer spaces in the wet summer.

Discreet presence of chubby but difficult to catch with natural bait as in all the steep waters. For real perches, it is better to use the live fish that may also affect some sowing trout or rare stills. Discreetly present the Agoni, who will also be sailing in the beginning of summer by fishing from the shore with locally purchased mahogany. Cane on 4 meters and lead of 20/25 gr. At the end of the line. It launches as long as possible and retrieves fast to tears. The best hours are the evening hours approaching the dark and until the law gives fishing opportunities. Once the herd is located and the depths will work, it will also be possible to make multiple catches. As a rule towards evening this fish acts almost to the surface and so fly fishing is possible if it is near shore.

There are big picks and trout though it's hard to pick but embalming two palms in the hotel prove it

Spinning offers discrete opportunities in addition to the species mentioned above also for picks and Black Bass near the cane on the southern shore. For both species try near the cane with spinnerbait or poppers if only the centrartide is insidious.

The best area for the exocid is the shore near the mountains where the best technique is the silicon sealed fish in the head of generous size. It is also logical to act with the Mort Maniee with good weight mounts, and perhaps trigger small size but already legal measures. So "discrete fish" will also select the size of the pike. Still present, the Alpinus salty Alpinus who are fishing with the "cannon" on the shoulder from the boat using amethysts with chironomic imitations.

Same thing for crocodile even though the artificial ones look like camels. The specimens, however, are mostly represented by small subjects is a specific fishing is not profitable. But for the chronicle we have to signal their presence. It is worth noting that the Mergozzo fish's lunaticity has several "coats" and that the use of the boat is decisive.

The association fisherman manages an incubation that produces 2-3,000,000 small crocodiles and 15,000 small trout with free work

Permits: License and permission issued by the common name as it is an exclusive fishery right of the commune. Until 2007 was granted concession to the local FIPSAS. Good fishing in Hotel 2 Palme da Ruggero Nibbio. In Hotel you can dine in the summer season on the veranda directly on the lake and Hotel has private beach.
