Fish specialities

In Lake Murten there are huge fish! The Wels, a local catfish is a rare find. Easier to find fish, espacially on a plate in restaurants all around Lake Murten, include pike and our very famous perch.

Situated at the foot of Mont-Vully, surrounded by vineyards and charming villages, Lake Murten is the perfect picture for a postcard. An ideal setting for the numerous fishermen of the region, both professional and amateur.

As often as time permits, Yves Lauper weighs anchor for Praz. Armed with several fishing rods and different hooks, this amateur fisherman scours the waves of the lake in search of his catch. "Here, we fish mostly for perch, pike and zander. These are also the best fish to eat", explains Yves Lauper. Fillet of perch meunière remains the speciality of the region and many lakeside restaurants offer this typical dish.

To be able to eat fish freshly caught from the lake really is a blessing, a fact of which Yves Lauper is conscious: "Not only is the freshness guaranteed, but also the flesh is so tender that you only need a fork to cut it. When the fish are smaller, they can simply be fried, delicious as a starter", he says with delight. For Yves Lauper, who has been fishing the lake since he was a small boy, "it’s the calm and the beauty of the place that I love, the vineyards, the view of the mountains, it’s magnificent".
