Rivers & river systems

Season: May 1st to February 28th

The river systems of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern originated in the Wurmian- / Weichselian glaciation period (last ice age) which worked from Meiendorf-Interstadial (from 11850 BC) to the younger Dryas (until 9700 BC). During this time, the Scandinavian glaciers moved gradually over the Baltic Sea to Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. However, due to the rise of the relief, the melting water of the ice masses could not flow to the south, but poured into the shallow zones in the northwest towards the North Sea. This formed broad valley lowlands (glacial valleys) out. After the ice retreated, the waters could flow north into the Baltic Sea. The gradual genesis (development) of the waters began. The typical mooring of the larger valley lowlands, which also led to the formation of valley fens, can only be found in the North German lowlands and in a still very natural condition in northeastern Poland. Furthermore, a watershed (borderline between two adjacent river systems) Baltic Sea / North Sea formed out, so flows about the Elbe with its tributaries (Elde, Löcknitz, etc.) continue in the North Sea. A breathtaking landscape was created, characterized by several rivers and streams, which meander through forests and grasslands.

The flowing waters of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern are very rich in species and fish. The main species of fish to be found in artificial spin fishing in the waters we fish for are pike, zander, perch, brown trout, sea trout, chub, ide and asp. Even a small salmon population has established itself in recent years in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
The Peene & Peene system
The Peene is the third largest river in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern with a length of around 143 km. "The Amazon of the North" offers not only water walkers and nature lovers an incomparable setting, but is also very popular with recreational fishermen.
With over 37 species of fish, the water is always good for a surprise. Especially predator anglers get their money's worth on the very good stocks of pike, zander and perch. Likewise, sport fish such as the asp can be actively fished with lures. By-catches such as hounting, vimba and trout are not uncommon. Even big catfish are home in the Peene and represent a special challenge.
The Peene as a "river with 1,000 faces" is a typical low-moor waterway with diverse water body structures. Former peat bogs, shallow water lakes, wet meadows as well as lowland and spring bogs offer the beholder a particularly varied landscape and the prevailing flora and fauna ideal conditions.

The Warnow & Warnowsystem
The Warnow is a 155 km long river that rises in the district Ludwigslust-Parchim and flows into the Baltic Sea between Rostock-Warnemünde and Rostock-Hohe-Düne. The name is derived from the Slavic and means something like crow or raven river. Since in the Middle Ages at the Mühlendamm in Rostock a weir was created for the operation of water mills, this forms the border between the fresh water river Oberwarnow and the brackish water of the Unterwarnow.
While in the Oberwarnow mainly pike, zander, perch, ide, chub, brook and sea trout are to be found in spin fishing, the Unterwarnow also accommodates cod and in the summer months even garfish.

The Recknitz
The Recknitz is a 88.9 km long river, whose spring water rises north of Teterow and flows at Ribnitz-Damgarten in the Saaler Bodden. The waters between Laage and Tessin are partially blocked by several weirs that dam the river about every 7 km. In the further course of the water has a nearly natural course, which is also due to the complex refurbishment and renaturation measures of recent years.
The Recknitz hosts a variety of our local freshwater fish. On our tours we catch mainly pike, zander, perch, ide and chub.

The Uecker
The Uecker meanders over 98 kilometers through two federal states. It has its origin near Alt Temmen in Brandenburg as "Ucker" and finally pours into Ueckermünde as "Uecker" in the Szczecin Lagoon.
The Uecker we especially in the summer months on chub. But even in spring, the river is interesting. Pike, perch, zander, sea trout and even salmon are on the hook.


Our guiding is planned according to your individual wishes and needs. It is particularly suitable for advanced anglers and provides the most successful tactics and techniques needed locally. But even inexperienced anglers we are happy to accompany you on your first steps. We take the time to strengthen your skills and to give you a certain ease in the handling of the fishing rod. Often it's just little things that stand between a "tailor's day" and the success of the catch.
