The Mürz Kapellen offers a varied dry and nymph fishery due to the structure of the water. Brown trout feel at home in the wide stretches with partly coarse rocks, pools and washed-out banks with numerous shelters. The long trickling stretches are ideal for dry fly fishing for grayling.

The fish population in this section has been growing naturally and sustainably for many years. Due to the bed load and the high number of feeding animals, the fish are well-fed, strong and beautifully marked.

Nature in the Mürzer Oberland is at its most beautiful. There are numerous culinary options just around the corner.
