Fishing in Lech am Arlberg

Savour the beautiful panoramic Alpine views and inviting mountain lakes with a fishing holiday in Lech am Arlberg. Whether a peaceful mountain lake or beautiful stream – the Arlberg holiday region offers something for all anglers.

From mid June to September, leisure anglers on the Arlberg have access to 4 different areas of water at the heart of the mountains. The most significant fishing waters in Lech and Zürs are the Lechbach, Spullersee, Formarinsee and Fischteich lakes in Zug.

Fishing in a mountain lake, reservoir, stream or fish pond

Anglers have various fishing options available to them, starting out from the Burg Hotel in Lech:

  • The Lechbach stream is a paradise for fly fishing in particular. It is a typical high Alpine stream and anglers can fish across a total length of around 17 km.
  • Brook trout, lake trout, rainbow trout, Arctic char, speckled trout and beautiful salmonids can all be caught at the Spullersee lake. The approx. 50 ha reservoir is located at 1,810 m altitude surrounded by an attractive mountain backdrop and is within easy reach
  • Also in the Zugertal valley is the Formarinsee lake. This mountain lake in the Lech source region is home to rainbow trout and brook trout and is located at 1,789 m above sea level.
  • The Fischteich Lech fishpond is located in Zug on the Lechbach stream. It is ideal for beginner anglers because fishing equipment and bait are provided. There is therefore nothing stopping you catch your first fish. The fish caught can be prepared and enjoyed at a nearby restaurant, if you wish. The Kids Club also offers fishing trips to the fish pond for children.
