Austria's crystal clear waters are perfect for fishing. Among the variety of places available, ​you can choose the one that best suits you. The Carinthia region offers you Gail river. In addition, to stunning landscapes the water in Gail is pure enough to drink. Brown trout, rainbow trout, and the recently reintroduced grayling can all be found in the Gail and its tributaries. Salzburgerland takes you to the National Park Hohe Tauern. The clear mountain water from the Schöder Valley and the Keeskogel Glacier offers an excellent home for local fish. The Grossarl Valley offers plenty of opportunities for anglers. Fishing season starts on April 1. An excellent fish population and marvellous mountain scenery turn the Tirolean high valley into a must-see destination for anglers of any skill. Fishing permission and sport fishing passports are required so don't forget to prepare beforehand.
