Re: Fly Fishing In Switzerland

Edit correction: The "Lake Trout" from Great Bear Lake in Canada is in fact Canadian Char or Cristivomer. They call them incorrectly Lake Trout there but is not the same as here. Clear as mud?

Re: Fly Fishing In Switzerland

Gents -

I have been away for a while waiting for the cold to subside. Fishing on the Reuss in Bremgarten starts on Thursday (March 1st). April 1st many rivers and lakes open up in Germany, Switzerland and Austria. You can get a day card for 30 CHF or a year card for 200 CHF at Hufschmeids in Bremgarten (cash only) with a SaNa. The Reuss is not the Kenai or the Deschutes, but it's moving water

Last month I passed the SaNa (98%) test here in Canton Aargau. I was very proud! And to be honest, only about 5 minutes of the test was sanctioned to 'how to kill the fish' so kudos to the organization and their people.

In any case, if anyone needs some info or times to go fishing let me know. The next few months are great times to get out on the water and wet a line.

Re: Fly Fishing In Switzerland

Hello all, I'm reviving an old thread since today I though it could be nice to get the kinder (6 and 8) out to the Hallwilersee (25min bike ride) and do some "from the shore" fishing.

1st I wanted to be sure that this is allowed at this time of the year since we have no permit.

2nd Can we also try to fish in the Aabach?

And, yes, if there's someone in the region that could share some knowledge with us, then please let me know.

Re: Fly Fishing In Switzerland

All regions are different- but here on the famous Areuse between St Sulpice (NE) and Boudry (NE lake) by the Gorges de l'Areuse, you definitely need a permit and do a course. But you can get day permits where you do not need to do the course- cheaper for local residents than outsiders- and with a lmit to the number of fish you can catch (+ minimum size of fish) and I believe you have to fill in a form to state what you caught. Same for pike fishing at the Lac des Taillères, in Switzerland's little Siberia.

These day permits can be bought from the local Police Stations, and fish and tackle shop, like the one in Couvet (2 mins walk from the train station) and a few other outlets. An awful lot of very high and rapid water now, so not sure fishing would be good.

Here's a bunch of info, in german:

https://www.ag.ch/de/bvu/jagd_fische...lerrecht_1.jsp

The Hallwilersee you can fish without a permit, from the shore with a natural bait like a worn or grub, but not the Aabach it seems, according to the above link.

Despite not having to have a permit, you do have to be aware of the laws in terms of minimum sizes, proper fish handling, etc.

Have fun and tight lines

Re: Fly Fishing In Switzerland

Cheers Everyone -

Been a while since the first post but I think that fishermen, and especially fly fishermen will get a good sense of Switzerlands' rank policies on fishing within these pages and posts, which I find somewhat cheeky and gratifying. Unfortunately the subject seems so much larger than our conversation on an English Forum, but at least we all get a tug of information and know there are others within the country that are befuddled by the miserable conditions that have been set forth for fishing.

In the end I gander we will all try and make the best of a somewhat annoying situation.

To update on the last couple of years: As of April 2015 I haven't truly tied on the wading boots in Switzerland for over 20 months or so. If I have, it was to get drunk with a buddy and thrash around on a creek we were poaching - not really fishing but just hanging out on the river. The Reuss River, one which is close to me, is truly a dead river and good for floating down on a raft to get some sun on a warm day .. again with beers in hand. You could waste your time and money on it if you wish, but you will become quickly disillusioned. If I lace up the boots here in Europe, its in Austria and Slovenia. Fish are plenty and the hospitality is catered for people whom enjoy the sport of Fly Fishing. Which is nice. These two country's are dialed into the sport and take pride in its nurturing.

Concerning Halwillersee ... I currently live in Seengen and know that you can get a license from the Gemeinde for 4CHF for the "Aabach" if you have a SaNa. This gives you 3 spots where you can't move in (they are tufts of dirt that you can cast from surrounded by large brush and shrubs and swamp) - they are not in the flowing river, but near the mouth where it is practically stillwater. They are meant for meat fishermen. Fun. Not. No thanks. The Halwillersee itself is open for fishing from the bank, but access is not easy. You could take a bunch of bread down, act like your feeding the ducks and geese and wait for the Döbel to come to the party and try and get one of those suckers with bread. But then you have to contend with the ducks and geese all over your junk. Fishing at it's brightest!!

The flowing part of the Aabach is closed to anyone whom is not a resident of the small cities of Halwill and Seon, which the creek flows through. The creek has been restored for some reason ... but it does look better, which is nice.

Great to see that people are still reading and following this tread. I wish everyone tight lines for 2015. The Trout season is open already for many places in Austria and once May 1st comes, most all are open in Austria, Slovenia, Northern Italy and Southern Germany. Give me a PM or send a message if anyone needs any advice.

Best,

Derek

Re: Fly Fishing In Switzerland

While I agree that the fishing is better in Austria and Slovenia, and of course the US, it's not nearly as bleak here as you make it out to be. If you find a club with some like minded people and a decent stretch of water, you're all set. I'm just outside Zürich and have access to a beautiful stretch where I can find rising fish practically any summer evening, and the adjacent stretches are equally good. You can buy a day card in Grabünden, Bern, or Glarus and bushwack and fish practically any water you see. More and more fly-only stretches are popping up, tens of millions are being spent revitalizing rivers and building fish ladders, justification for releasing fish has been expanded and clarified somewhat, the future doesn't look so bad.

It's nowhere near what I'd like it to be, but simply not fly fishing isn't an option for me.
