Stanglwirt fishing grounds
The extensive Stanglwirt fishing grounds seem to be made for spending relaxed downtime in absolute wilderness. The vast area is reserved exclusively for Stanglwirt anglers and is crossed by a lovely mountain stream about 14 km long, where the fish find numerous flat or shallow places to hide. For angling fans, that means lots of opportunities to make a big catch and, in any case, enjoy a wonderful outdoor experience. Happy fishing!
Our junior director, Johannes Hauser, is himself a passionate fly fisherman who knows all the best places to go. For the best angling results, he recommends using 4- to 6-weight fly rods between 240 and 270 centimetres long with nymphs, wet flies and streamers. Depending on the season and weather conditions, every angler's kit should also include chest waders or wading boots with felt soles, together with warm underwear, rainwear, a hat or cap and sunglasses.
Catch and release
Fishing at the Stanglwirt is an affair of the heart. That's why our river and rainbow trout, char, grayling, indigenous Tyrolean trout and Danube salmon may only be caught during the day between 5 a.m. and 10 p.m., using barbless hooks, and must then be released. Please also note the legally prescribed closed seasons for grayling (1 Jan - 15 May), river trout (1 Oct - 28 Feb) and brook char (1 Oct - 31 Mar).
A day permit for the fishing grounds (only available to hotel guests) costs €50.00 + the one-off legally required annual local fisheries levy of €25.00
