Fishing in Tuscany

  • Fishing in Tuscany

    Tuscans love to fish and in most towns you’ll find a fishing and hunting shop. Call in and tap into their knowledge about good local places to fish and the licences you’ll need.

  • Sea Fishing

  • Fly fishing

    The best place to go fly fishing in Tuscany is in the river Alto Tevere at Sansepolcro, west of Arezzo, about 1 hour 40 minutes by car from Siena.

    In the Lucca area, the natural basin created by Serchio, the river that crosses Garfagnana from north to south, from Sillano to beyond Castelnuovo di Garfagnana, is a good choice of location, too.

    For expert fly-fishing guides and tours, contact Fly Fishing Italy, which offers hand-picked, patient and friendly professional guides, who will offer tips and techniques, whether you are a seasoned fly fisher or a first-timer.

  • Lake fishing

    Lake Vallechiara, at Quornia, on the road between Castellina in Chianti and Monteriggioni, is a good spot for fishing. Follow the signs for Ristorante Vallechiara, where the owners hire out tackle, then settle down by the lakeside and cast your rod in the hope of reeling in carp, sturgeon and trout.

    Lago di Chiusi and Lago di Montepulciano, near Chiusi and Montepulciano respectively, are by far the two of the best places to go lake fishing in Siena province. (Ristorante Pesce d'Oro, near Labo di Chiusi, is a good spot for lunch, too.) Seek permission to fish from the contacts below.

    In the north of Lucca, Lago di Massaciuccoli, close to the former home of the late composer Giacomo Puccini, who used to hunt around its shores, is a beautiful choice for lake fishing. To get permission to fish here, you’ll need to contact the local authority on the following phone numbers +39 0583 474260 / +39 0583 474276
