Nothing tastes better than your own self-caught, newly fried mountain trout? Chances are good you get a catch. You can choose between 90 fishing waters and river stretches, located from 446 to 1523 msl.
There are plenty of fishing spots; from small idyllic ponds to big, open mountain lakes, as well as good stretches for fly fishers to the Hols-river at the bottom of the municipality. Most of the waters have a big trout stock, in some of them you even find char. The sizes of the fish lies in between 100-1000 gram, but every year a number of fish up to 3 kg. are caught.
