Karpu dikis "Kastos"

Lauku tūrisma un atpūtas vieta „ Karpu dīķis Kastos” izveidots 2009 .gadā. Dīķa platība 2,3 ha. Vidējais dziļums 4m. Atrodamies tikai 15 km attālumā no Rīgas centra - "Viesītes", Jaunmārupē, Mārupes novadā GPS: LAT 56.8688250, LOV 23.9150339

Kopš 2013. gada dīķī mājo karpas, līņi, sami, karūsas, līdakas, raudas, asari u.c. zivju sugas – Mūsu dīķi zivju krājumiem līdzās dzīvo arī vēži. Dīķī ir divu veidu vēži. Audzējot jau esošos krājumus, dīķis tiek regulāri katru gadu papildināts ar jaunām zivīm.

Vēžu vārīšana kopā ar dillēm dīķa krastā un loma baudīšana - tā ir neaizmirstama atpūta. Vēžus var ķert ar krītiņiem, bet īsti vēžotāji tomēr uzskata, ka tas ir garlaicīgs paņēmiens, aizraujošāk ir ķert ar rokām.

„Karpu dīķis Kastos”  ir iekārtots ne tikai makšķerēšanas priekiem, bet arīdzan atpūtai visai ģimenei. Telšu un piknika vietas, speciāli ierīkota peldvieta, WC, bezmaksas atrakcijas.

Makšķeru, vēžu krītiņu, laivu noma un iespēja iegādāties visu piknikam.
