Fishing grounds

The Bregenzerwald’s rivers, streams and lakes are ideal fishing grounds. Fly-fishermen also discover lovely fishing grounds. The waters in the Bregenzerwald are classified as the trout region. The main fish here is the brown trout, although the odd rainbow trout and grayling can also be found. Day tickets are available for all the listed fishing grounds: prices range between approx. € 15 and € 35. Precise information about fishing limits, minimum fish lengths, fishing ground boundaries, etc. is available from the appropriate issuing offices.
