The waters around Werder offer anglers plenty of opportunities to catch fish. However, you need a fishing permit!

The Werderan Havel is excellent for a fishing trip and there are often surprising catches. Anglers who cast their rod for non-predatory fish – among others, carps, tenches, barbels, rudds, roaches, or breams – don't need a fishing license in Brandenburg. However, you're not allowed to just go out and cast your fishing rod at any point. An annual fishing tax must be paid, and a fishing permit must be purchased.

A fishing license is required to fish for predatory species. The closed seasons must be observed when fishing for predatory fish. Night fishing is not allowed.
