Looking for a nice fishing spot in The Netherlands, close by Amsterdam and Amsterdam Airport? Fishing on the Vinkeveense Plassen is an absolute must. Pike, zander, whitefish, tench, perch and carp: with the right techniques and a dose of luck, you can hook them all. Note, the Vinkeveense Plassen are not known as the easiest fishing area. But… it is incredibly beautiful. The water of the Vinkeveense Plassen is crystal clear and in some places over fifty metres deep. Around our island the depth varies from three to eight metres. You can cast your rods from the various decks, but you can also take the boat out onto the lakes and go fishing there. Would you like to fish for carp? Then it is advisable to set out feeding spots for several days. That way, you have a much better chance of catching carp.

The Vinkeveense Plassen are known as a special fishing area, attracting anglers from far and wide. From the UK to Germany, Belgium and, offcourse, Holland: we have regularly welcomed anglers. Great when you come with a group of fishing friends, but it is also cool to come fishing with your partner or family at Island Life. Combine a few days of fishing on the Vinkeveense Plassen with Island Lifestyle. In the evening, light the barbecue, enjoy the various fire pits on the island or have a beer at the outdoor bar. Cheers to a relaxed holiday!

Note: if you go out on the lakes, a fishing licence is required. You can buy a fishing licence at several places in Vinkeveen. We are happy to help!
