Fishing is only permitted from a boat.
In addition to the large pike population (the largest pike of 1.47 m and 27 kg !!! was caught in 2020), lake trout, perch, eels, tench, carp and whitefish are also on the agenda. A special feature is the good whitefish stock, for which the lake is known beyond the borders.
Our apartment is specially equipped for anglers.
You can obtain the permits directly from us here in the house so that you can get started as soon as you arrive. You can also hire an echo sounder from us for a small daily fee. In addition to a butchering area, there is also a freezer at your disposal. Whitefish anglers can make use of various rods and floats.
It takes about 5 minutes by car from our apartment to the boat mooring. As I have been fishing the lake myself for years, I can help you with any questions you may have.
