Larger mountain streams
Krimmler Ache – “The Jewel”
“The jewel” of our waters has its source at an altitude of about 2500m at the Krimmler Törl and runs above the waterfalls over a length of about 15km across the Krimmler Achental. You can expect natural fly fishing waters with the character of a meadow river and a width of 10-20m. Short sections of the mountain stream are easy to walk on.
Below the waterfalls, between beautiful stone pine forests, you will find a mountain stream with medium- and large-sized pools. These are a little more difficult to get around, but do not deter the real fly fisherman.
This beautiful body of water is under nature protection and may be fished by a maximum of 10 fishermen a day. The whole route is catch and release. Reservation required.
Felberbach (fly only)
Coming from Hintersee, this 6-12m wide mountain stream flows directly into Mittersill, near the hotel, into the Salzach. You will find plenty of medium to large pools over the entire 12km . It is somewhat difficult to walk on due to the high embankments, but the fish are usually right at the bank in these places.
Stubach (bow tie only)
Amiddle meadow river with a width of 10-15m , and partly very deep pools. It is easy to walk through
Habach (mixed waters)
The Habach river rises at the end of the Habach Valley and is additionally fed by several side streams on its way to the Salzach. A very wild mountain stream with medium to large pools, which is often very difficult to walk along due to the many trees.
Hollersbach (bow tie only)
The middle mountain stream rises at the end of the Hollersbach valley in the Kratzbergsee, is characterized by its medium and large pools. It is easy to walk up to the gorges at the beginning of the valley.
Finkausee connecting stream to the Gerlos reservoir (fly only)
The small mountain stream of Wilder Gerlos is rather flat with a medium current. It is densely overgrown with small pools but easy to walk.
