In the Andermatt Holiday Region, several mountain lakes and streams invite you to go fishing. In order to get hold of fish such as brown trout, arctic char or rainbow trout, fishermen have to buy a fishing licence. Daily permits are available to all. Three-day, weekly or annual licences are only available with a recognised certificate of competence.

Information / patents

At the reservoir in the Göscheneralp, fishermen find ideal conditions for a perfect day of fishing. In the very cold but oxygen-rich water, brown trout, rainbow trout, Arctic char and Namaycus trout defy the harsh living conditions.

Fishing licence: from the vending machine at the dam, sales points or online. The patent entitles you to take up to six fish per day from the lake. Fishing with barbs is prohibited.

With its pristine waters and abundant oxygen, it provides a good foundation for life. In fact, it is home to lake and rainbow trout, Arctic char and Namaycush trout.

Fishing permit: Fishing enthusiasts need their own fishing permit for Lake Oberalp, which can be obtained and paid (cash only) for directly at the kiosk (Restaurant Calmot) at Lake Oberalp. The licence entitles you to fish up to six trout from the lake. The Uri fishing licence is not valid here.

If you need fishing equipment, you can rent or buy it at the Piz Calmot. The fishing season at Lake Oberalp is expected to last from 17 June 2023 to September 2023. Fishing is allowed between 8 am and 8 pm each day.

In the countless other mountain lakes and streams in the Andermatt holiday region, fishing is only permitted with a fishing licence and a recognised certificate of competence. In the cold, clear and oxygen-rich water between stones and water plants, brown trout, rainbow trout, char, Namaycush trout and occasionally also minnows hide.

Fishermen can order fishing licences at several sales points and online.

Happy fishing!
