Fishing or Boating Opportunities Around Zurich???

I will be moving to Switzerland this summer but I will be in the Zurich area next week and weekend with another work colleague. Thus I am looking for some suggestions on what to do over the weekend of April 30th? As both of us fishing and boating, was thinking that maybe someone can recommend a location where we can rent some fishing gear and fish on Lake Zurich? Any ideas?

Re: Fishing or Boating Opportunities Around Zurich???

To fish on the lakes you need licenses.

You can hire a bicycle at the SBB railway station and join the

To fish from the shore on Zurichsee you don't need a license, but there are some restrictions on the kind of tackle you can use. To fish from a boat, you do need a license, and it might or might not be possible to get a one day license without doing the exam. Haven't done it myself, so don't know for sure.

No bike ride can scratch the fishing itch

Re: Fishing or Boating Opportunities Around Zurich???

Thanks for all the good ideas and information. It seems that I can fish from the shore in Canton Schwyz which is where I will actually be staying. However does anyone know if there are any stores or shops where I would be able to rent fishing gear?
