Fly Fishing in Ötztal

Exciting fly fishing of rainbow trout, Brown trout and char in our mountain streams

The Horlachbach is a fast-flowing mountain stream with cold, clean and oxygen-rich water.
The stream is clear throughout the summer, the area ranges from 1000m above sea level to over 2000m.

As equipment, you should procure a eight to nine foot-long rod of cord class 3 to 5 for the Horlachbach. Wading pants or wading boots (with felt soles) enormously facilitate fishing at normal water levels in summer and autumn (0.33 m³/sec. to 2.0 m³/sec.).
