Fish: Rich in trout, grayling and huchen

The Drava River is home to magnificent rainbow trout, brown trout and brook trout, as well as grayling, tench and nase. In addition, the huchen is a special species, especially since it is rarely found in Central Europe. Fishing rods are allowed as fishing aids and natural or artificial baits, flashers, wet and dry flies are allowed as baits. There are times when the Drau River is in flood and difficult to fish. This is at snowmelt or after prolonged rain. If you want to know about the current state, call us. We are happy to provide information.
