The Faggenbach, which flows directly past Hotel Edelweiß in Feichten, offers the best conditions for fly fishing with its varied and often shallow stream course. The brown trout reigns here and with a lot of luck even a rare rainbow trout can be attracted. You can get your day ticket for the fishing area Faggenbach Mitte directly at the hotel by your hotel manager Klemens Praxmarer.
Or you can drive up to the Gepatsch Stausee, where you can fish at 1,767 meters above sea level in front of the imposing mountain backdrop of the Ötztal Alps.
