Fishing on Lake Balaton

Anglers require two types of fishing licence to fish on Lake Balaton. Angler's will need:

  1. a national angling licence
  2. a Lake Balaton licence, i.e.
    • either a licence that allows you to fish from the shore and from a boat anywhere on Lake Balaton, or
    • a licence that allows you to fish from the shore and up to 1500 metres from the shore only.

Fishing licence prices can be checked at source:

The anglers' guide, i.e. fishing rules, typers, sizes and numbers of fish that may be caught are detailed here:
