Angling in the Haslital
As a fishing area, the Haslital offers great diversity in a very small area. You will find every type of fishing spot here, from the large Alpine lakes—the Thunersee and the Brienzersee—to high Alpine creeks and from rushing mountain rivers to hidden mountain lakes. Whereas the Alpine lakes are mainly home to native lake trout and whitefish, but also some nice stocks of pike and perch, the colder, oxygen-rich high mountain lakes are mainly home to Canadian Arctic char. Many high mountain lakes have excellent stocks of brook trout, brown trout and rainbow trout, as well as the occasional native Arctic char. The beauty of the flowing waters makes anglers’ hearts beat faster—especially fly-fishers. The pools, in turn, are home to naturally grown brown trout, colourful brook trout and, at lower altitudes, the occasional grayling. The beauty of the flowing waters makes the hearts of fly fishers beat faster. For this, it is best to book a guided tour (see link). Important: Before embarking on a fishing trip, please familiarise yourself with the fishing laws of the Canton of Berne and make sure you understand the applicable animal protection laws.
