Fishing on the "Cossi"

The plan of Lake Cospuden

The red line at the Pier1 harbor marks the ban on fishing.

The southern hatched area means restricted area. But you can fish there from the shore.
In the northern and eastern bathing areas, bathers have priority. 
The cheapest car park for anglers is next to the former Elster reservoir on the western side of Lake Cospuden.
