[GEELONG,May 8,2014] - Angling Adventures, Australia’s leading fish tour booking agency, gives experienced anglers the opportunity to catch the 50-pound Nile Perch at Lake Nasser, Africa’s largest man-made lake. The destination is unique, because it carries two special fishing seasons.
The first season is from March to the end of June. This is a time when the native Tilapia spawn, urging their principal predator, the Nile Perch to come into shallower waters for an easy meal. During these months, anglers can indulge in some shore casting and fly fishing as the catch is plentiful in depths of 10 to 20 feet.
The second season runs from October to February, and is considered the ‘big fish’ months. This is the time when the Nile Perch start to congregate in the deep waters in preparation for the spawning season in February.
The Nile Perch is a favourite among Australiananglers, as it’s described as similar to a Barramundi, but bigger. The heaviest Nile Perch that’s been caught in Lake Nasser weighed a total of 275 lbs.
There won’t be a shortage of space either for both anglers and fish, as Lake Nasser covers an area of about 5,250 square kilometres. A dam built on the Nile in 1930s diverted the water into the Nile Valley, and the fish population boomed, given the large amount of space they were suddenly given.
Other than the favourite Nile Perch there are other fish species anglers can aim for as well, includingthe diminutive but plentiful Tilapia, the aptly named Tiger Fish, and the sometimes enormous Catfish.
