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

January 2018


Last News: I wish you a happy new year. In january , if it is-n't frozen, you can fish on rainbow trouts in the storkreservoir. The streamer is mostly the best in this cold days, but sometimes some trouts come near the surface.


My last flyfishing session: December 29, 2017. I went in the afternoon with my friend Alexandre to Seltz, join Christian, Lionel and Edgard, already present since the morning. The weather was cold with strong gusts of freezing wind, and even some snowflakes around 16h (see photo 1). High water, cold. Very rare fishes on the surface. So, we decided to fish with streamer, which was already quite successful by my friends, especially Christian (on SFM-2). We caught some nice trouts, once the coffee swallowed together. The streamers we had the best, Alex and me: SFM-3, SFM-5 , ZSP-2. (see photo 3). And already the evening was here, pushing us to regain the warmth of the home. Even if the session was a little short for my taste, it will leave nice memories for the last fishing day of the year .


Fish immersions: 2017, december the 27, 300 kg of rainbow trouts, (average weight on 1kg) came in the reservoir.
