In addition to predators, e.g. pike, zander, catfish and so on, this water is known as the Carinthian bream region. The high nutrient supply and the riparian areas including side waters also provide an optimal habitat for the cyprinids such as carp, tench, roach, rudd, gull, crucian carp and other carp-like fish. For matchfisher this area with the bream as leadfish is a paradise and carp anglers will also not be disappointed. Furthermore, zander fishermen will enjoy the very good zander stock.
