A few kilometers from the sources of the Biferno river, La Piana dei Mulini is the ideal place from which to explore the shores of the main waterway of Molise in search of a location from which to fish.
The torrential river is rich in autochthonous brown trout which in some cases reaches considerable dimensions. In addition to the magnificent trout, there are also some carp, specimens of canine barbel, rainbow, eel and chub of considerable size.
At normal speed, the Biferno, especially in the first section, closer to the sources, has a moderate flow with very tumultuous sections, alternating with large slow current flat and wide currents with low depth between which several rocks emerge.
The vegetation, normally dense and very high along the banks, gives way, near La Piana dei Mulini, to comfortable river beaches and walkways of natural boulders that are easily passable, making access easy and safe even for beginners or children who wanted to learn the fascinating art of No-kill fishing.
In fact, despite the different river management with spinning techniques, fly fishing and touch fishing, entrusted to Fipsas and other sport fishing associations, in the Park of the upper valley of the river Biferno there is no-kill fishing (or Catch and Release), a technique that is spreading very quickly in the world of sport fishing and that adopts a series of rules to do the least possible damage to the fish caught and then released.
The Fish Charter is the result of in-depth studies, promoted by the Molise Region, which have affected the main rivers and lakes of Molise.
The topics covered regard the main aspects of river and lake ecology, from the quality of the water to the structure of the fish community, making it possible to have a thorough knowledge of the dynamics that regulate the aquatic environments of the region.
The Fish Charter also represents an important work tool for technicians and administrators for an adequate management of the structure and protection of the regional natural territory for the purpose of a re-evaluation of the aquatic environment and of the fish fauna.
