Fishing Resorts in Austria

Fishing Holiday at Hotel Fliana in Ischgl
Fishing holidays in Austria can be very varied. The Paznauntal valley is one of the greenest and most abundant with water in all of Tyrol. The conditions for a fishing holiday in Tyrol are exceptional, and in the area surrounding Ischgl, almost perfect.


The crystal-clear water runs over smooth rocks, swooshes through steep sections, and cascade as it collect in pools – but it is where the flows calmly where the fish can be found. These fish hardly ever reach record sizes, but one can expect catch that brings between 300 – 700g on scale. The more than 20-km long and 6 – 12-m wide river runs through the entire Paznaun valley. It is accessible almost everywhere, and if you wear waders, it can be crossed in during at low water levels. In other words: perfect conditions for casting lines and fishing for beginners as well as for expert fishers.

The Schwarzwassersee lake is idyllically located above Ischgl at the beginning of the impressive Fimbatal valley. It has a surface area of about 220 square feet, it is surrounded by forest and meadows, and is considered to be one of the most beautiful places in the Paznaun valley.
