The special charm of the Antiesen river

One of the most diverse fishing waters in Upper Austria

The Antiesen river is 20 kilometres long; its lower boundary is only 14 kilometres away from the hotel. The route starts near the town border of Ried im Innkreis. It certainly offers a pleasant fishing trip for anyone. The course of the Antiesen river is punctuated by small power plants with weirs and mills, which are part of its special charm. Frequently, the biggest fish are precisely in those mills. The small channels of the Antiesen river also offer great fly-fishing opportunities with salmonids and cyprinids. This Upper Austrian fishing water has mixed stock. It is rich in

  • European chub
  • common barbel
  • common nase
  • grayling
  • brown and rainbow trout

and presents passionate fly fishers with excellent opportunities and challenges.
