A friend of mine fished there a few times but that was four or five years ago. I know he was a fly fishermen and came back to work drooling after each weekend. Should be googleable as he said it was famous for some sort of big salmon.

I was fishing there some time ago, but what can I say It is one of the best places to fish in Poland but quite crowded (the part of the river down from Solina reserviour).

There is the special fishing ground from Myczkowce dam to £ączki village - it is NO KILL zone and you need a special permit for 70 zł per day. The number of fisherman there is limited and for most of the summer weeknds licences can be sold off many days beafore.

The rest of the San (up from Solina lake, and down from £ączki) and other rivers in the region are "normal" waters so you just need a license for Krosno area (50 zł per day) to fish everywhere (you can buy it in angling shops in Sanok) . The San down from £ączki to Sanok is a nice river but often crowded.

I reccomed you to visit some of the smaller rivers of Bieszczady moutains as Osława, Solinka, Wetlinka or upper San. You won't find there very big fish but fishing alone in wilderness is worth it.

It is easy to find some places to stay in Lesko. It is a very nice town just at the river. You can also find a rom at the Solina reserviour (there are may hotels) but to get to the river you will have to drive for 15-20 minutes and in Lesko and neiberhooding villges you can find a room just at the river

Best regards
