Fishing on the canal

The Finow Canal is the oldest artificial waterway in Germany. It branches off the Oder-Havel Canal at Zerpenschleuse and joins the Oder-Havel Waterway at Liepe.

The Finow Canal is fishing country! It runs in wide bends through predominantly wooded areas. The width of the river varies greatly along the way. This gives the watercourse interesting bed structures. Areas with calmer currents form with sandbanks, reeds and herbaceous vegetation. Some trees hang down into the water, creating habitats for a variety of fish species. Deadwood can also be found in the channel.

Fishing permits

The Finow Canal is managed by the Barnim District Anglers' Association. Guest fishing permits are available there.
