Sport fishing in Zimbabwe offers the fighting Tiger Fish found in Lake Kariba and along the Lower Zambezi River. The annual Tiger Fishing Competition is held in September/October. Other species include Bream, Vundu (the ultimate in catfish), Chessa and Bottlenose.
Bass fishing is available in privately stocked dams.
Trout fishing is available in the Eastern Highlands in stocked National Parks dams in season.
Catch-and-release is practiced by many Zimbabwe sport fishermen, but visitors are welcome to retain their prize catch for taxidermy work, which can be undertaken in Zimbabwe. Serious fishermen should bring their own tackle with them.
