FISHING AT LAKE WEISSENSEE

PARADISE FOR ANGLERS

Make yourself comfortable at the 6.5 km² fjord-like and largely unspoilt Lake Weissensee. Because here you can fish without territorial limits from 10 May to 20 November.

FISHING HOT SPOT

Free access to the lake, your own fishing boat and 22 species of fish: everything is prepared for anglers at Lake Weissensee. All you have to do is buy a fishing permit (the easiest way is conveniently online) and choose your spot on the lake. The fishing permit is valid for the entire lake! 
At lake depths between 5 m and 99 m you will encounter whitefishes, carp, pike, perch and many other species. This means that you are always flexible when it comes to variations of fishing.

SERVICE FOR ANGLERS

The first port of call for anglers on Lake Weissensee is the Domenig rowing and electric boat rental shop in Neusach on the north shore of the lake. Treat yourself to a coffee in the bistro "Das Bootshaus" and cast off directly from the shore for leisurely fishing sessions. In addition, there are also numerous accommodation establishments around Lake Weissensee that offer special services for fishing enthusiasts:

  • Early riser breakfast
  • Freezing facilities for your catch
  • Regular anglers‘ tables
  • Hotel-own fishing boats

INT. FISHING COMPETITION FOR THE "GOLDEN TROUT" OF LAKE WEISSENSEE

The anglers’ greeting Good Fishing! can be heard often around Lake Weissensee in Carinthia when the international fishing competition for the Golden Trout of Lake Weissensee is on the agenda from 26 to 28 May 2022. This fishing competition has been held every spring at Lake Weissensee for 49 years. Around 200 fishing enthusiasts, including many ladies, follow the invitation of the Weissensee agricultural community. The aim of the competition is to catch the biggest pike, carp, perch and chub as well as the biggest tench, whitefishes and of course the biggest brown trout. The results can be admired at the daily fish weigh-in and prizes are presented at the award ceremony. But there is also a social part to this. At the end of the competition on Saturday, 28 May 2022, there is a big anglers’ party with an award ceremony, music, dancing and entertainment.
