Sector I – Falperra Lake


The Falperra lake is situated near the town of Vila Pouca de Aguiar at an altitude of 912 meters from sea level and included in the Alvão / Marão Community Interest Site (Natura 2000 Network).

It has an area of 16 ha and was used initially in a old irrigation system for agriculture, but in recent years infrastructures have been created to allow better circulation and fishing conditions around the entire lake. The depth of the lake varies between 0,5 – 5 meters.

The lake is stocked every year, and it will be also stocked with brown trout before the competition. There is also a stock of rainbow trout from previous years.

During the competition there will be a rotation of beats.
