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
    Paolo Fanciulli is an experienced fisherman and hiking guide who offers fishing trips that adhere to sustainable practices in the seas off the Maremma Regional Park. Book one of his morning or full-day tours, for up to 12 people, which depart early from the port of Talamone.

    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.

    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.
