The fishing district of the municipality Völkermarkt is located on the left bank of the Völkermarkter reservoir and covers a total length of 12,440 m. The fish water extends from the Draubrücke 3 km upriver in the direction of Tainach and after the dam in the direction of Lavamünd to the mouth of the Lorenzibaches (first stream on the left bank). Fishing guests who spend their holidays in the municipality of Völkermarkt and have their guest registration card, receive a discount on the fishing licence (except annual and official guest fishing licences). Fishing licences are available year-round at the Tourist Office of Stadtgemeinde Völkermarkt and at the issuing offices from April to October each year. Annual fishery licences are only available in the tourist office of the municipality Völkermarkt (limited number of season licences).
The chosen culinary and sleeping capacities are fishermen friendly. Each offer contains carefully prepared data about the distance from the water and we made sure that every chosen object is fishermen friendly-that means that almost every specific wish of the fisherman can be granted. We pinpointed the special areas for which the fishing stores are known so that you can easily establish useful contacts when choosing your fishing gear.
The area 10 stretches in the reservoir Draustau Edling on the left bank from the Völkermarkter border to the border Rakollach, pumping station. 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. In the middle of the district there is a nature reserve with many islands, dams and bays. Of course, fishing is prohibited here. Due to the fact that this area is one of the widest areas of the Völkermarkter reservoir, there are many spots with slow currents. Since 01.01.2017, the area 2 (right bank from the Tainacher bridge to the Merwischfelsen, except Brenndorfer ponds) and the area 4 (right bank 1 km above to 3 km below the power plant Edling) also belongs to the fishing district Stürzenbecher.
