Game fishing and Fly Fishing
Many will regard the keen fisherman standing by the river or on the shore of the lake with disbelief and wonder why he can’t think of something more exciting to do in his free time. That’s what a fascination for fishing seems to be.
What you manage to catch is, of course, part of the enjoyment. Everyone wants to catch the most, the heaviest and the loveliest fishes, but when you love going fishing, these things aren’t always the most important.
This is where the idea of “time” comes into play. “Time” for yourself, “time” to enjoy yourself, and “time” to get close to nature. Now is the time to let your thoughts run free, and when you enjoy amateur fishing, you can just switch off, not think about anything in particular, and simply forget about everyday life.
Fishing in our lakes, rivers and streams
The Dachstein Salzkammergut Holiday Region is the perfect playground for fly fishing, amateur fishing or those trying out fishing as a means of relaxation. The crystal clear waters are the habitat for a wide variety of fish such as whitefish, char, pike, trout and many others. The fishing season lasts from May to October – the perfect time for a fishing holiday in Bad Goisern at Lake Hallstatt, Gosau at Dachstein, Hallstatt or Obertraun.
