Anglers Paradise - The fish on Lake Bolsena

Because of its good water quality and its depth of water (maximum depth 151 meters), Lake Bolsena is very rich in fish and as a result of the good fish stock, there are a lot of fishermen around. A lot of people at Lake Bolsena live by fishing. Either indirect by selling fish, or direct by go fishing. The most famous food fish is the Coregone, a trout, which has few bones and a mild flavour. You should definitely try the Coregone - either grilled at the market, or at a Restaurant.
