Located at 50 km in the north of Strasbourg, in Seltz the stork reservoir is reserved for flyfishing. (see the very detailed map)
Its pure water (it is the ground water of Alsace, the biggest of west Europe), the quality of his fishes, the convenient laying out , combine to bring this place on the top of the flyfishing areas in Alsace. The fishery, of 2.5 ha, is made up of 2 ponds. They go down to a depth of 10 meters . All flyfishing techniques are allowed (dry flies, nymph, streamer, wet flies), with a maximum of 3 flies; barbless hooks only.

The fish you will find in Seltz are mainly trouts: really big rainbow, brown and aguabonitas (the yellows), some chars, an other species like carps, tenchs, roachs, perchs, pikes (big ones). A nice pikeperch has been caught in 1999.

the storkreservoir: news of the month

September 2018


Last News: The storck reservoir is open since the staurday 08 september 2018 . After the colder nights of the beginning of september, we could open the reservoir one week earlier as we thought.


My last flyfishing session: On March 14, 2018, I went to try some new models of flies and the new rod DEVAUX T 50 that I added to my catalog (see pictures 2 and 3). The weather was nice, cool with a bit of east wind, not the best for fishing. (see pictures 1 and 4). The still cold water did not favor activity, even if I saw the first brown caddis emerge, which caused a few rare surface activities. I fished mainly nymph, made some tests with dry, without success. I managed to interest a dozen fish, bringing 8 to the net including 3 specimens of 50 cm and more (see picures 2 and 3). There was a lot of fishermen without succes around the reservoir, because you had to find the fish, almost all hidden under the shrubs of the edge or in the seagrass. A short note on the DEVAUX T50 # 5/6 rod: it has proved very pleasant and very effective, whether to cast or fight fish. My model Montana nymph test was conclusive, as were the CNA and the REY-3, the 3 nymph models giving me the trouts. In short, a very enjoyable fishing session. .


Fish immersions: 2018, september the 04 , 600 kg of rainbow trouts came in the reservoi: 500 kg with an average weight of 1 kg, and 100 kg of very big trouts, with a weight over 2 kg.
