Running waters



The River

The river Sile is in the Italian region of Veneto and meets the north Adriatic Sea. Its resurgent springs are 20km west of the city of Treviso in the province of Padova. The Sile is the longest river to come from resurgences in Europe and is 95km long. The name Sile comes from the Latin term “silet”, which means silent, calm, because the water level is always constant, and the river flows very mellow and calm, it has never strong currents and does not receive much water from other rivers during times of rain.

The riverbed is 2 to 4m deep and is gravelly with weedy patches. The water is very clear. We at Italien Carp Lakes offer you to fish a 25km long stretch of the river. The river in this part has calm flowing parts as well as side arms, canals and lakes. We take care of the licences, the transfer to the swims and some guiding on site. The river sile is the healthiest river of Italy. Ideal for who enjoys peace and tranquillity. Once you are on the river you will appreciate the beautiful countryside of Veneto

Important advice


From the 15th of may till the 30th of June the fishing in closed on the river Sile due to spawning. We can’t take bookings for this time.


You will be fully immersed in nature. Showers and toilets are not available.  When fishing on swims only reachable by boat you won`t be able to get to the shops. Our partner though will cater for all your needs during your stay. Just call him and tell him what you need. When you book we need a copy (or picture) of your ID card or passport in order to get the regional licences that are needed for the fishing in advance. It’s also very important that you carry both documents with you all the time in case you will be visited by the rangers.

Because of the occasional boat traffic, we advise you to use back leads all the time. As far as the tackle is concerned we advise strong rods and reels and a mono mainline of 0,40-0,50 or braided mainline. The arrival will be at the warehouse of our partner and this is also your staring point. Here you can have a shower if needed. You can also leave your car there knowing it’s in a safe place. Normally you will be brought to your swim by boat. Not many swims are reachable by car. Campers and caravans are not possible though. You can bring your dog with you. You can use a grill but not make an open fireplace on the ground. If you wish to fly, you can also rent your gear there. The tackle hire includes: Bivvy/bedchiar/chair/pod without alarms and indicators/3 rods/boat with engine and batteries/ stove and gas/table/ pots, pans, plates and cutlery/ unhooking mat/slings/landing net/scales/water carrier/bins and cool box for hot days. An airport transfer is also possible.


The river is best known for his population of strong mirrors and commons, but you can fish also for catfish, pike, perch and coarse fish. The average size of the carp is between 10 and 15 kg, also fish of over 20kg are present and the biggest fish caught in the stretch so far was just a few kg under 30kg!! Because of many chub, barbel and other white fish we advise to not use any particles at all and rely only on boilies of 20/24/30 mm. The amount of bait is not limited. For those of you that don’t want to take too much bait with you, it’s possible to purchase the bait directly at the factory of our partner. You don’t need to order them in advance. Boat with electric engine is allowed and is mandatory to fish the river efficiently. You have to bring your own boat and the ones available on site are only for those who take the flying package. The number of swims is unlimited on this stretch. As a rule of thumb 2 or 3 anglers can fish from one swim. Our partner will bring you to the best areas for the time by boat and guide you on the first day. Catfish are not rare here.
