The edges of lakes are covered with fine material and gravel sand, sometimes there are marshy areas. The bottom is usually covered with sand and mud material or peat. Supplies are exclusively due to atmospheric precipitation and by groundwater, often using the exchange channels, which connect the lakes in one system. Mineralization of water is moderate or low and varies in the intervals 75 – 125 and 200 – 250 mg / l.

    Welcome Arthur! Buddy, the wikimedian angling said yes:

    Świteź is part of the National Park, so you must have “Fishing Kwytok”, for that, you can ask at the point where the releasing of visitors or in forestry.

    He also said, You can fish and without this “ticket”, so many people do. Mainly fish lightly and purely hobbistycznie.

    You should therefore ensure that “Fishing Kwytok” just be sure to check whether they are stamp and whether this is an official document, instead of a paper.
