Alpine fishing- the Gental Water (Bernese oberland)

The Gental Water (Gentalwasser) is far the most beautiful and productive creek in the Bernese Oberland. Flowing through green alpine meadows, the water has abundant food to make the wild alpine trout growing to far bigger sizes than in any other creek in the region. In contrast ot many other waters, we do not stock any bag size fish- all fish are naturally grown up and need many years to grow. During this time, the fish develop a lot of smartness, which will make fishing quite demanding. Fly fishing in the clear Gentalwasser is therefore one of the most exciting experiences a fly fisher man can have.

Please note that availability of fishing licences is limited to protect the water from overfishing. Make your reservations early.

For your holidays in the region, we suggest the Reichenbach Lodge where you can get also the necessary fishing permits.

See the video "Catching a trout in Gental Water" and how fast the trout rise in the shallow water.

Casting skills are needed and you need to hide yourself to get the bigger fish- look how our guest from South Africa did it!
