Angling

Angling

The natural wealth of Banyoles Lake makes it ideal for angling.
You’ll need a fishing permit issued by the Autonomous Government of Catalonia: you’ll also need a specific permit for the Banyoles Lake area and the Vilar pond.
Permits are available for 1 day, 15 days or up to 5 years (counted from the date of application).

The specific permit is either for 1 day or annual (calendar year).
These permits can be obtained through:
Internet:
www.gencat.cat; in the transactions section (or using the search option, searching by “fishing permit”)
You can also use this option to renew your fishing permit and apply for the permit for the controlled area.
When you take out the permit for the controlled area, bear in mind the following details:
- River: Ter
- Type: Without kill
- Species: Cyprinids
