Fly fishing in the Bregenz Forest

Summer fishing holiday at 4 star Hotel Post in Austria

More than just fishing

Some say that fly fishing is more than just fishing; it’s a passion. The rivers, streams and lakes in the Bregenz Forest are ideal fishing waters. Fly fishermen find choice territory here. In collaboration with a fly fishing school, Hotel Post offers a complete programme ranging from beginner’s courses through water guiding and rental equipment.

Learn fly fishing

For beginner, the fly fishing school of Claus Elmenreich offers a 3-day course (a half-day each day) from 21 to 25 September 2014. The goal is to touch you enough about fly fishing so that you can fish around the world in various waters with no problems.

The programme includes:

  • An introduction to fly fishing
  • Basic information about selecting equipment
  • Learning and improving the basic cast
  • Using what you’ve learned on the water - with appropriate water levels

Fly fishing guiding sessions

For those with experience, the fly fishing school offers guiding sessions where you can improve or expand upon your knowledge. You can learn new casting techniques here or find one that suits you.


The waters within the Bregenz Forest are part of the trout region. The primary fish is the brook trout and some graylings and rainbow trout are also found. You can find a site plan of the waters from the Mittelbregenzerwald fishing association here. This is a sustainable fishing area, meaning that no fish are added.
