Fishing

Alpenfischen in Savognin
It is a special experience to be out with the fishing rod on the wild mountain streams like the Julia or Valetta, or to enjoy nature at one of the many crystal clear mountain lakes.

Season dates

Fishing in running and standing waters in Surses is allowed as follows:

  • Watercourses (stream, river): May 1 to September 15

  • Standing waters (lake): 1 May to 31 October

The most important in a few words: For fishing a patent is required (sales points can be found below). Fishing is allowed from 05.00 - 23.00 o'clock. Only one piece of fishing tackle may be used per angler. Please pay attention to the protected area (Rona) according to the water map. Carrying barbed hooks is prohibited and will be fined. A maximum of 3 hooks may be attached per line (a triplet counts as 3 hooks). The daily catch limit is 6 fish in flowing waters and 10 fish in standing waters. However, no more than 10 fish may be caught per day. On flowing waters a seasonal catch limit of 60 fish applies. The catch statistics must always be updated immediately.
The catch minimums for the waters in district B5 (Surses) can be found in the operational fishing regulations starting on page 27. Common fish species in the canton of Graubünden can also be found in the operational fishing regulations starting on page 63 (as of March 2020).

Protected species

The fish species nose, bullhead, brook trout, eel, strigione and bearded goby as well as the jackdaw and noble crayfish are protected throughout the canton of Graubünden.

Conduct appropriate to hunting

Fish shall be handled with a wet hand, stunned with a blow to the head, then killed or gutted with a gill cut and only then released from the hook. Undersized fish shall be released from the hook with a wet hand as gently as possible and carefully returned to the water.
