The Curonian Lagoon and the Klaipeda Channel are the best places for amateur fishing. Prevalent fish species here are common bream, perch, pike-perch, roach, vimba etc. In spring, fishermen go for the Baltic herring in the Klaipeda Channel.
Ice-fishing is especially popular. This is the best way to catch burbot and smelt. Fishermen from boats in the Baltic Sea catch plaices, Baltic herrings, Baltic cods and turbots.
Fishing by any mean is allowed in the Curonian Lagoon up to 500 m from the shore with a special permission issued by the Lithuanian Ministry of Environment (except angling from the shore). Only angling from the shore and ice-fishing are allowed at night. State border police permission is obligatory for fishing in the Baltic Sea and waters on the state border. It is allowed to catch up to 5 kg of fish per fisherman a day.
Amateur fishing in the park is defined by Lithuanian Amateur Fishing Rules.
