Brown trout, whitefish, pike, carp, tench, zander, Arctic char & more: Weissensee is the ideal place for a fishing vacation in Carinthia.
Fishing season: May 10 to October 20
In the 6.5 km2, fjord-like, and mostly untouched Weissensee, you can fish without boundaries. The fishing license is valid for the entire lake.
22 species of fish are native to the Weissensee. Especially tasty is the whitefish, but also brown trout, pike, and carp inhabit the lake at depths between 5 and 99 m, with all forms of sport fishing allowed. Our Vitalhotel Weissenseerhof offers you free access to the lake and e-boats, which can also be used as rowboats.
A special service for our fishing enthusiasts is the early-bird breakfast and the opportunity to freeze your freshly-caught fish.
Fishing events on the Weissensee!
A traditional gathering for all fishing enthusiasts is the international fishing event for the "Golden Trout of Weissensee". For over 35 years, fishermen have competed every May in this popular competition. In the autumn there is pike, perch, and harvest fishing. In addition, we keep a list of the biggest catches on the Weissensee for the entire season.
