Lake Babītes is the 7th largest lake in Latvia, with an average depth of 0.9 meters.
It is close to the sea and connected to it by the river Lielupe. Lake Babīte has various restricted areas.
It’s one of the most popular pike lakes in Latvia. Perch is also common in this lake and grows to decent sizes. The spinning season is open from June 1 (but only in one part of the lake). In other parts of the lake we can start fishing from June 30th and July 31st (depending on the fishing spot), until it freezes. The zone near the Varkaļu canal is closed all season. Only rowing boats or boats with electric motors are allowed. You will be fishing with spinning "Zemex" Bass addiction 702mh, 2.13m, 8-32g, spinning reel "Abu Garcia"REVO STX 40, and "SpiderWire" Smooth-8 0.17mm.
With an only 40 minutes ride from Riga center you're in a wonderful fishing spot. The shallow water allows you to see the fish attacking on the bait, which is an experience you need to see!
