Your fishing holiday in Ötztal

From the quiet waters of Nederbach to the white water of Ötztaler Ache

There is a saying among fishermen: “Fishing is the most unsuspicious way of doing nothing.” Well, why not? After all you’ll be on holiday here in Ötztal. Fishing is a perfect retreat from everyday life. It is a fantastic way to enjoy and take in Mother Nature.

Posthotel Kassl owns some fishing grounds on the Ötztaler Ache and on the Nederbach, two very different and exciting private waters. In the summer months there is also rainbow trout fishing on Lake Habich. An ideal place for a day of family fishing.

Oberer Nederbach

The upper part of the Nederbach River is a small wild mountain river that winds through the Nedertal Valley from Ochsengarten to Kühtai. The Oberer Nederbach is as romantic as the Unterer Nederbach, but it is much slower and runs through beautiful alpine pastures. There is less growth on the river, so this is a fantastic place for fly-fishing, especially in summer.

The majestic nature that surrounds the river is also highly satisfying for non-fishing companions.
