    Thumbs up Fishin' in Austria (part2)

    After our stay in Gerlos we « moved » to the Hotel Forelle(it means trout in german) for three days.The hotel owns the upper part of the Tuxbach a wonderful mountain stream.
    On the first day we fished the section near the spring.Here the Tuxbach is rather narrow but easy to fish and wade,it runs through meadows and as it was hot many cows were drinking.It didn’t disturb our fishing very much and we could catch many browns but less bows than last year.

    On the second day we fished the middle section,it’s a very fast one.That’s why not many anglers go there,but if you’re familiar with fast water techniques your fishing will be absolutely amazing.All the little spots near the banks and behind rocks are taken up by trout.The average size is around 12’ …I shouldn’t say that… but sometimes you may think there are too many fish!!


    On the third day we explored the section just after the little canyon,the stream is a bit wider with lots of places for trout to hide.Nico was in great shape and I was treated to catch after catch. I don’t know how many we could land but it was a lot,a great number of browns and some bows which jump out of the water and rush downstream like mad when they’re hooked.We had to follow some of them for a good 100 yards and were lucky our reels were well set.



    .About gear,Nico used his old Scott G 955 with his alu Vivarelli and a 4wt line and I fished with my Cortland brook series 10’ 4wt,I have to say again it’s a great rod for the money…Nico tested it for a while and agreed it’s not”too bad”…so…
    The Tuxbach isn’t a wellknown stream in Austria but it’s for sure one of the richest in fish I’ve ever seen.The Hotel Forelle is comfortable,the cooking great at a very reasonable price.When we left the boss asked me about our fishing…but he already knew my answer…GREAT!

    I have been waiting for part two, nice water and it looks like you guys had it pretty much to yourselves. You should have had my 7'9" with you

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    JP great report it looks like you and Nico had a great trip--- Did you know your son is famous? I heard there's a fly pattern called "Nico's Favorite"

    Beautiful scenery and great looking wild fish!

    Simply a great report and great pics. I really appreciate you taking the time to post. Just fabulous scenery. I'm green with envy but I cant find the icon for the little green smiley face.

    Best Regards, Boser

    JP: Great fishing report and photos! The Tuxbach looks like a great mountain river to fish, good to see you and Nico had such a great time fishing together. There is nothing like getting the chance to enjoy fishing with your son!
