The Curonian Spit and Klaipeda Channel are the most suitable sites for amateur fishing. Here, it is usual to fish for a bream (Abramis brama), perch (Perca fluviatilis), pike-perch (Lucioperka lucioperca), roach (Rutilus rutilus), zanthe (Vimba vimba vimba) and others. In spring, in Klaipeda Channel one can fish for Baltic herring (Clupea harengus membras),
This land is popular for ice-fishing, during which one catches burbots (Lota lota) and smelts (Osmerus eperlanus). At the Baltic Sea, out of the ships, amateur fishermen catch flatfish (Pleuronectes platessa baltica), Baltic herring (Clupea harengus membras), cod (Gadus morhua callarias), and halibut (Scophthalmus maximus).
In the Curonian Spit, at the less than 500 m distance from the shore, fishing with all fishing tools is allowed only when having permissions and licenses (except fishing with float rods from the shore) issued by the Ministry of Environment. During dark time of day it is allowed to go fishing only from the shore and from ice. It is prohibited to go fishing in the Baltic Sea and borderline water pools without the permission of borderline police. The total weight of fish caught during the day shall not exceed 5 kg for one fisherman.
Amateur fishing in park waters is performed in accordance with the rules of amateur fishing.
