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 border to the town of Ried im Innkreis. It guarantees pleasant fishing for everyone. The course of the Antiesen river is punctuated by small hydropower plants with weirs and mills, which are part of its special charm. Frequently, the biggest fish can be found in these mills. The small channels of the Antiesen river also offer great fly-fishing opportunities with salmonids and cyprinids. This Upper Austrian fishing water contains 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.
