Egypt – Asuan – Lake Nasser

Fishery Fishing Fishing tours


In the South of Egypt, in the centre of Nubean desert we can find the largest artificial lake on the Earth – Lake Nasser which is considered as the best fishing district in the world.


Sportive fishermen from all over the world have visited this place for several years to experience quality fishing safari and to try to catch some local fish – Nile percid or local sheathfish. Some fishermen catch their biggest freshwater fish for the first time in their life here. Almost everybody´s dream comes true and it is the experience they remember till the end of their life.

If you have a sence for adventure and like outdoor life this is the perfect choice for you.



After arrival to Aswan you will be transfer to your hotel or board the boat at the lake directly.


Fishing motor boats are 7 metres long. There are two beds in the cab and stowage space for fishermen. You can get sheets and pillows on the mother boat but we recommend using of your own sleeping bag. Fish hunting itself takes place from the boat deck.

The boss is controlled by Nubii men who can speak English and they have long lasting guide experience on the lake.


You have full board on the mother escort ship. A chief prepares local and also international cuisine. You can get fresh fish or a birthday cake if you wish. All beverages and beer is mot included in the price and it available on the mother boat too.


Fish hunting

Fish kinds

The main goal fish to hunt is Nile percid (Lates niloticus). The average weight of these exemplary fish in the safari is about 20-50kg. The biggest Nilke percid cought had 176 kg!! According to the survey Nile percid can have a chance to have a record size in the lakes not in the river systems. We are known that there are giant fish in the Lake Nasser. Nile percid is caught with trolling and a na přívlač from the bank.


Another interesting catch is a tigerfish (Hydrocynus forskalii) which can have weight of 8kg. The size of Nile percid and on the other hand sportive experience to catch tigerfish with easy tools also brings adrenaline adventure. We hunt for přívlač mainly so tigerfish is sometimes a good catch when you use trolling.


Sheatfish makes a good challenge. There are 18 types in the lake and 2 of them are very important for fishermen – Bargus a legendary Vundu of course. If you get Vundu on the hook we guarantee unforgettable match. Local fishermen talk about pieces they have more than 50kg. The biggest fish caught had 78lb (35kg).


Another fish hunted for přívlač is tilapia that is very popular among local fishermen. Blowfish that blow their body as a ball and bite are also found there.

Přívlač from the bank or from the island also offer unforgetable experience especially if you hunt with lighter equipment and that is why good fishermen enjoy fish fighting.

If you would like to fish hunt 24 hours a day you can throw up on položenou for sheatfish. Your equipment should be tough. We use filets or dead fish as fish baits. It is good when you take luncheon meat.


Fishing seasons

Fishing season is divided into 2 terms:

a) Summer season: from the half of March till the end of July we can find Nile perch in flat water because tilapia the main pray is in the phase of spawning. That is the best time of the year for přívlač from the bank. Trolling provides a good sportive experience when using flat fishing lures. We can see a lot of perches at this time but they are smaller than in winter season.

August and September are very hot months at the Lake Nasser. Neither our local guides work at this time.

b) Winter season: from the middle of October till the end of January. The lake reaches the highest point and perches are in deep water. It is not good time for fishing from the bank but if you would like to catch a very big perch with using trolling technique, it is the best time ever.

April, May, October and November are busy months. Book your trip earlier!
