Fishing from Oosterstaketsel, Westerstaketsel and the Pier

You need a permit to fish from Oosterstaketsel, Westerstaketsel or the Pier.
Fishing permits are valid for a year and are for sale at the Tourist Information Point or online via the webshop.

Please note that the western jetty will be demolished for the construction of a new western breakwater. There will therefore be no possibility to fish from the western jetty from 2 October 2023 until spring 2026.
