Applications for a fishing permit can be made in one of the local offices of the National Hunters'
and Anglers' Union, or in a fishing tackle store, licenced to issue fishing permits on the behalf of the Union. The only document required is proof of identity. The permit must be carried at all times when fishing

These permits give the permit holder the right to fish everywhere where fishing is allowed.

Fishing Seasons
In Bulgaria most species of fish spawn in spring and fishing is generally prohibited from mid April until mid June. There are some species that spawn in winter, such as trout, and the fishing season for these is quite different.

However, angling in certain lakes and small dams is allowed throughout the year in the so-called sports fishing basins.
