About Carplake Katlov
Lake Katlov is one of the Czech Republic’s most prestigious waters and is set in the middle of Bohemia, a place surrounded by sleepy villages and beautiful scenery. This lake has been a long-term project set up by the world famous big fish man, Jakub Vagner. If you are a fan of the National Geographic Channel, you would have seen his impressive TV series, Fish Warrior.
Jakub Vagner has planned and created this entire lake, which is rich in vegetation and holds a vast array of features to target. The lake is around 60 acres in size and the stock is mightily impressive with a good head of 20kg+ carp to be caught that are growing fast and have all been hand picked to ensure the quality of fishing is incredible. The lake has 17 double swims and there are toilets and showers that have been finished to a luxurious standard near most swims.

Carplake Katlov fishing resort
The complex consists of two lakes. Carplake Katlov especially for carp anglers and Catlake Pohan especially for catfish anglers. Jakub Vagner has determined and constructed the entire underwater vegetation on both lakes himself, to make everything as ‘fishy’ as possible. That means: beautiful slopes, islands, various types of water plants, neatly laid out swims, lots of nature and an amazing fish stock.
Catlake Pohan is located next to the 25-hectare Carplake Katlov lake and, with its 2.5 hectares of water and 3 two-person swims, is a somewhat smaller lake. Katlov has no less than 17 large double swims, between almost every swim a dry toilet has been made so that you don’t have to walk far. At the arrival place you can unload and park the car, through this road all stuff can be transferred to a boat to go to the fishing spot.
The arrival place offers 3 different buildings. The first building is a concise fishing tackle shop, the second building is the home of the manager who can oversee everything from this point. And the third building has very neat showers and toilets.

With a large stock of catfish including some 100 kilo plus specimens, mandarin catfish and several beautiful mirror and scale carp, it is nice fishing here if you like a lot of action! On Catlake Pohan you can fish at night, belly boats, active lures and fish with live bait or pellets via a buoy or static bottom rig. You can also lay out a carp rod for the necessary variety. The lake has an island in the middle, 3 large fishing piers along the sides and there are boats available to sail your fishing lines. The average depth is 1 to 2 meters, with a deeper part of about 4 meters in the middle. Reeds, trees, hard edges and aquatic grasses surround the pool, in short, the perfect hideout for catfish in a natural environment. In consultation it is possible to fish on Pohan per day. This is only possible last minute, a combination of both lakes is a great experience!
