Fishing in the Salzkammergut

Rods out, the fun begins

The numerous lakes of the Salzkammergut, such as Lake Hallstatt, Lake Wolfgang, Lake Mondsee, Lake Attersee and Lake Traunsee, invite fishermen and anglers from all over the world to come fishing every year, naturally during the legally prescribed fishing seasons. But not only the lakes, but also the flowing waters, such as the Koppen Traun between Bad Aussee and Obertraun on Lake Hallstatt, have their own special charms.

There’s something for everyone

And not just for fly fishermen. The areas in Austria's 10th federal state have long been more than just an insider tip among anglers and fishermen: an enormous variety of fish species and a wide variety of water types make the region a true fishing paradise.

Great Choice

Whether whitefish, pike, barbel or char - in the quiet and atmospheric floodplain landscapes with rich vegetation, every fisherman is guaranteed to find his favourite spot. Endless peace and quiet instead of hectic mass activity: fishing in the fantastically beautiful natural landscape of the Salzkammergut is simply a pleasure.

Important is...!

In any case, the prerequisite for fishing is the acquisition of a fishing license (guest license), which can be obtained from the respective license provider. The individual providers and exact fishing periods can be found in the respective articles on the areas.
