Re: Boat renting in Greifensee

I've seen people renting boats from beside the Sailing Club (Segelclub vom Greifensee (SCvG)), sometimes for a little paddle, sometimes with fishing gear.

Google says 3 spots: https://greifensee-stiftung.ch/boot-fahren.html

Just in case you or anyone reading this and wanting to do the same thing are not aware: While you are allowed to fish without a license on the shore, you need a fishing license to fish from a boat.

Re: Boat renting in Greifensee

Have you tried looking at the sites links? It's all about the Greifensee and has links to follow for different things. One of them is fishing, that leads to

"Weiterführende Informationen zu Fischereibestimmungen auf dem Greifensee und im Kanton finden Sie auf der Website der Kantonalen Fischerei- und Jagdverwaltung. Gerne geben Ihnen auch die Ranger am See Auskunft über die Bestimmungen der Schutzverordnung."

Re: Boat renting in Greifensee

"8610 am See" bar in Uster rents boats (but I could not figure what is the current status since the bar is closed due to covid - I think that boats are not rented now). The price is normally around 15chf per hour, but if you use the boat for fishing you can buy a 10 hours card for 45chf - which makes it 4.5 per hour and it is quite fair.

Re fishing license: there is a lot to be said, you can search for "fishing license" on this forum and you'll get enough info to get started.
In very short, you have three options if you want to fish from a boat:
- buy a daily license (25chf)
- take a fishing class, exam, get your federal fishing abilitation (SaNa) and only then buy an yearly license
- join someone who has a license + guest license

In general there are a lot of rules when fishing, many things that are normally accepted worldwide here fall under animal cruelty laws. So even if you don't take the exam and simply go for the daily license, I'd suggest you to get familiar with the most important rules as not following these can easily land you in trouble
