fishing permits and angling licences
what you need to go fishing in trentino

After learning about the variety of lakes, rivers and fish species in Trentino, do you feel the urge to take hold of a fishing rod and attempt to catch a pike or a trout? While it’s a great idea, remember that anglers also need a fishing permit in Trentino! To get yours, contact the local association responsible for the water where you intend to fish – each one has a dedicated website where you can find a list of the places that issue permits. Permits for one or more days can be purchased in paper format from the various association offices, from authorised bars and restaurants or from tourist offices. If you would prefer a digital version, visit the Trentino Fishing website.

If you enjoy fishing all year round and you don’t want to have to obtain a visitor’s permit each time, you will need the following documents:

  • sports fishing licence (issued by the Autonomous Province of Trento)
  • provincial fishing authorisation (following an angling examination)
  • annual fishing permit issued by the association responsible for the water.

Budding young anglers up to the age of 16 years do not need these permits, provided they are accompanied by a holder of both a fishing licence and an authorisation.

For more information, contact the Wildlife Service of the Autonomous Province of Trento.
