Trout Fishing in Switzerland, Swiss Alps Flyfishing
Trout Fishing in Switzerland’s alpine waters for brown trout & brook trout. Fish the most scenic waters in the Swiss Alps. Guided wilderness trips.
What could be better than spending a day on a beautiful clean stream, fishing dry flies for brightly colored brown and brook trout, enjoying the mountain scenery and breathing the fresh air ? This is trout fishing in Switzerland.
The Swiss Alps with their mountains, forests and glaciers provide a multitude of fishable waters.
Meadow creeks, inaccessible mountain lakes & brawling white water streams- there is everything to fit your preferences when trout fishing in Switzerland.
I live in Wilderswil near Interlaken and guide only in our immediate area, that is within one hours drive from here. I will guide only on waters I know like my own pocket and that I like to fish by myself as well….
I do have a wide range of streams available – some of them private and secluded, some easier to reach – the best ones- small mountain streams requiring a careful approach on glass clear waters, allowing only one person at a time to fish…
Please be aware that many of our smaller streams (the ones I prefer) can be fished only during 3 days a week: Monday, Wednesday, Saturday. This is for conservational purposes…….
Fishing one of our many beautiful mountain lakes is a special challenge- fantastic scenery and beautiful fish, challenging long casts for raising trout at dusk and dawn.
Trout Fishing in Switzerland
The season for brown and brook trout opens on March 16. and ends on September 30. The month of March and April usually being too early for good fly fishing. This is the snow melt season in our mountains and often the waters will be at a high level and discolored. In those conditions nymphs or streamers are the only way to go.
By beginning of May most waters are back to their normal water level- May to September is the prime season for fishing dry flies.
When trout fishing in Switzerland’s mountain creeks, casting long distances is not the key- a stealthy approach, reading the water, finding the fish and a drag free accurate presentation are most important. Often a fair amount of walking or wading is involved.
As the fishing goes here in the alps, we are highly dependent on weather and water conditions,when deciding upon a days destination. Generally the fishing conditions are good, with completely unfishable days being the exception. For the one seeking dry fly action, clear water is a must and thunderstorms can put a river off for days. Gusty overcast days may promise good fishing in a mountain lake.
Therefore it is necessary to keep different options open and make final decisions on the spot, at the time. I can not guarantee that you’ll be able to fish a specific river…..
