The Fuscher Ache is rightly called the Pearl of the Tauern by fly fishermen because of its first-class water quality.

The right tributary of the Salzach flows from south to north through the idyllic Fuschertal. It passes the villages of Fusch and Bruck and flows into the Salzach near Krössenbach. The 28 kilometer long Ache is valued by fly fishermen for its abundance of primeval trout as well as char and grayling.

With the Grossglockner-Zellersee Tourist Association, a new member is now presented under the umbrella of Adventure Fish Water.

And not only that – the selection of accommodation options is also very large in Bruck Fusch. It ranges from inns and hotels in the 3 * Superior and 4 * categories to cozy apartments or cozy chalets.

To the fishing area:

The fishing area of the Fuscher Ache begins at the confluence with the Salzach and ends in the Ferleitental. Framed by the numerous three-thousand-meter peaks in the national park region, the landscape experience associated with fishing is an attraction in itself. In sum, the fisherman will find extremely varied types of water on the Fuscher Ache. They range from calm river passages over large ponds, rapids, rock undercuts and gravel banks. Dry flies, wet flies, nymphs and streamers are permitted for use.

If you hike from Fusch along the Badstrasse into the Weichselbachtal for about 1 hour, you will reach the once famous, but now dilapidated, mountain health resort Bad Fusch at 1188 meters. The mountain lake in the middle of nature – the Bad Fuscher See – scores with its always clear water and is fishable from mid-May.

In total, three salmonids can be removed per day per day.

Fishing licenses / cards are available from the following issuing offices:

Fishing in the wider area:

Fishermen who are looking for an alternative to the Fuscher Ache and the Bruck Fusch region can also try their luck in some of the waters of the Hotel Bräurup (Mittersill) and the Hirschbichler fishing waters in Lofer with a surcharge on the fishing permit. Fly fishing is also offered in the nearby Zellersee. A total of 185 km of fishing water and 9 lakes for fishing are available in the vicinity of Bruck Fusch.

Not far from Bruck Fusch is the Saalach with a population of brown trout, grayling, brook trout, rainbow trout and poppy trout. After an investment of € 1.35 million by the federal government in matters of flood protection and bank renovation, a wonderful new fishing area for fly fishermen has been created in Wals between the Sohlrampe and Siezenheimer Steg. The river bed was widened by 15 meters. It now offers optimal conditions for licensees and day fishermen.
