Tight lines – fly fishing in Austria
Top service at the Hotel Jesacherhof
The Jesacherhof hotel invites you to enjoy fly fishing in Austria! Hobby and sports anglers will find a real fishing paradise in the hotel’s own 25-kilometre-long waters in the Schwarzach river, which can hold its own compared to the most popular fishing areas.
From the end of May to the end of October, it’s time for fly fishing in Austria in the wildly romantic mountain streams between 4 and 30 metres wide! Your fishery supervisor, Michael Jesacher-Schneider, will show you the area personally and provide you with many useful tips. The hotel’s own fishing shop provides you with all the fishing accessories you could possibly want.
While you make your great catch in the Schwarzach and Patscherbach rivers, or in the Oberseitsee Alpine lake, your children are supervised by our entertainers and the rest of the family relaxes in the spa area.
