Angling at the Stanglwirt

St. Angler-wirt: Angling at the Stanglwirt

For fishing fans, the Stanglwirt becomes the St. Angler-wirt. The fast-flowing mountain stream, nearly 14 km long, which rises in the Kaisergebirge range and crosses our land with no tributaries, features numerous flat or shallow places where the fish love to linger.

So anyone who wants to have not only a wonderful outdoor experience at the foot of the Wilder Kaiser, but also the opportunity to make a fine catch in private fishing grounds, will strike lucky at the Stanglwirt.

Just for fun

Catch and release

From May to September you can fish every day from 5 10 p.m. for river and rainbow trout, char, grayling, indigenous Tyrolean trout and Danube salmon. To maintain the environmental balance in our fishing grounds for the long-term, all fishing is on a "catch and release" basis and barbless hooks must be used. By the way, please note the closed seasons for fishing which must be observed: grayling (1 Jan - 15 May), river trout (1 Oct - 28 Feb), river char (1 Oct - 31 Mar).

St. Angler-wirt

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 linger.

    Tips from a pro

    As a passionate fishing fan, junior director Johannes Hauser knows all the best spots in our fishing grounds. He recommends using 4- to 6-weight fly rods between 240 and 270 centimetres long with nymphs, wet flies and streamers.

    Kit should include chest waders or wading boots with felt soles. Depending on the weather we also recommend warm underwear, a rain jacket, a hat or cap, and sunglasses.
