Back from Austria...Part2
After five days on the Tux,we moved to the hotel Post which owns a section of the Oeztaler Ache,two little lakes and a beautiful mountain stream the Nederbach.Most people come to fish the big river in spring and autumn.In summer it’s not fishable because of the run off and used by rafters.It rained a lot on the road so we were a bit worried …the Nederbach was a bit high but clear enough to fish on dry.The lower section is very fast and overgrown and it’s usually our favourite because nearly nobody fishes there,but the water was a little high to enjoy it really.So we mainly fished the upper section which is far easier.There are lots of browns and a few rainbows,the fish are not very big 14 ,15” for the biggest .The owner of the lodge asked us if we didn’t mind filling a statistics sheet every evening to see what’s going on on his stream…that’s what we did and I daren’t say how many fish we could catch…we had three great days except on 14th in the morning when it rained too much.The Hotel Post is a charming and romantic place,it’s one of the oldest hotels in Austria…their chef is an artist!!!
One more thing….we were the only fishermen !!!
