FISHING IN THE VENOSTA VALLEY
Where to Fish in Venosta Valley
The Merano Fishing Association regulates the fishing licenses for the Venosta Valley. There are several areas to fish in the Venosta Valley, from the outlet of S. Valentino Lake to Tell/Toell village with several side streams, and the 7km stretching along the Passirio river in Merano/Meran. There are more than 150km of fishing spots in the area of Venosta Valley.
The northernmost area around Resia Lake retains its own fishing rights. In adjacent S. Valentino Lake, one of the most beautiful natural lakes in the Alpine region, fishermen can also find a place to cast their lines free of care. For fishing in S. Valentino Lake, a fishing license type B or D as well as a fishing card for the day will be required. You can purchase the daily card directly at the boathouse at Fischerhäuser/Casa dei Pescatori, at Alpenrose Inn, or at Bakery Angerer in the village center of St. Valentin a.d.H./S. Valentino alla Muta.
In the Venosta Valley you are fishing for veined trout, river trout, rainbow trout, brook trout and grayling. Smaller fish species can be found in the mountain lakes.
A national Italian fishing license costs 35€ and is valid for 10 years. The license can be bought at the Fishing Shop in Castelbello/Kastelbell, village center Castelbello: Tel +39 0473 624466
