Baerenthal is surrounded by water so it’s not surprising that the village is a meeting place for anglers.
Some prefer to come and relax with their whole family and tease the fish out of the water. Others for example prefer fly fishing.
It’s even a haven for Carp anglers who have a high respect for the fish and throw them back in the water after weighing and photographing their catch of course.
Managed by the Commune, this lake is part of the “Pays de Bitche’s Natural Rock and Peat Reserve”.
Fishing is allowed all year round apart from the month of December. Roach, rudd, perch, tench, pike and also carp and trout are amongst the different sorts of fish that can be found in the lake. Every year young fish are introduced, notably trout. Annual fishing permits are available at the town hall.
Daily permits are available on site at a distributor on the embankment.

The Zinsel du Nord, a 1st grade river winds its way several kilometres through the village.
As well as the fish that can be found in the lake, there are gudgeons, chubs and the barbs.
Fish breeding is carried out throughout the season by the AAPPMA who assure the management of the river and that of Lake Klein where trout fishing is organised regularly.
Opening periods vary depending on the council orders.
