Fishing in the Vinschgau Valley (South-Tyrol Italy)

The Vischgau Valley begins at the Reschen Pass and ends in Töll. Meran’s Fishing Association operates more than 150 km of streaming water in this valley, where the river Etsch and its tributaries flow. The most typical fish species in this region that includes the Schnals Valley as well are different kinds of trout, the speckled trout and the greyling.

In order to get the one-day card for fishing you have to possess the Italian licence for fishing (valid 3 months).
