Of all Malawi has to offer Lake Malawi seems to be somewhat of a highlighted attraction for the country where many tourists often flock to the lake’s shores to bask in the warm African sun and try a little fishing. 95% of the fish in Malawi’s waters are found nowhere else and there are approximately 400 species in the lake though overfishing has become a bit problematic. While the governement continues to educate locals to respect breeding and growth periods anglers are still welcome to spend their hand at catching some trout. It is suggested visitors bring their own rod and tackle during fishing season which runs from September to May.
