Fly-fishing on the Fuscher Ache

Good fishing

Thanks to its top-quality water, described as a gem in the Tauern, the Fuscher Ache inveigles all fly-fishers and those who want to become one.


This meditative and exciting challenge is a unique adventure.

Dry flies, wet flies, nymphs and streamers can be used as bait. 


It is not just worth taking a look into the water, but the impressive mountains in Salzburger Land, which are a continual presence. 

Fuscher Ache – whooshing currents and twittering birds

From the Tauerngasthof bridge, heading into the valley, there is a natural section spanning some 7km, which features the water body structures that all fly-fishers look for. Fast flowing at the start, then crossing into deep troughs – an ideal topography for anyone who wants to combine nature, tranquillity and technical fishing, in a harmonious manner.
