In 1996 “Andreas Gutscher” had a vision! He wanted to make it possible for anglers to fish under pleasant conditions for the largest freshwater fish in our country, the “Catfish”. After repeated trial fishing under the most difficult conditions, he decided without hesitation to move the whole family to Corbola in the Po Delta to set up “Catfish Camp Po”.
Driven by incredible ambition, despite enormous setbacks (several floods), they managed to realize a unique “Catfish – Camp”. But see for yourself!
The river Po
The River Po rises in the Cottian Alps at the Valle Po on the Italian-French border and flows into the Adriatic Sea at Adria (Veneto). With a length of 652 km, it is the longest river in Italy. The river flows for a long time through the Po Valley (Italian Pianura Padana), the most important agricultural and industrial region of Italy. The Po has a vast delta of about 380 km², the surface of which is increasing. Five of the main weapons are Po di Maestra, Po della Pila, Po delle Tolle, Po della Donzella and Po di Goro.
Catfish, zander, carp and more
With a large stock of catfish, surpassing all other stocks, the Po is the ideal river for catfish fishing. Especially the time after the catfish spawning season, in May, is very good for chasing the big fish. Several catfish in one day are possible here. In this part of the Po it is possible to catch large catfish all year round. The catfish are caught and released back into the wild.
In addition to the catfish, the pikeperch with capital weights can also be found in the Po Delta and the carp stock is also very good! In the Po Delta, local fishermen focus almost exclusively on mullet or, with baited pits, smaller non-predatory fish. Catfish and zander are hardly caught by the local population.
In our campsite’s own tackle shop for fishing equipment and accessories you can get everything you need to catch a catfish! You can also rent equipment in the shop. You can borrow a fully assembled fishing rod from us. In addition to the rod, you will receive a fully equipped spare parts case, for which only used accessories will be charged.
For example, you can get a fishing rod without mounting from € 35.00 per week.
Boat engine fuel and bait are always available separately.
