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.
In the lovely landscape of Central Carinthia lies in the middle of the protected area a nice lake, approximately 75 hectares large. The pristine shores, with large water lily and reed belts, where many rare species of birds still have their nesting sites, make fishing in the Längsee a special nature experience at 550m above sea level. The lake has a maximum depth of about 21 meters and has a shoreline length of over 3.8 km. East of the Längsee is the St. Georgen Abbey, a part of the Diocese of Gurk, in which an educational building and a hotel are housed. South of the lake lies the picturesque castle Hochosterwitz. The excellent water quality allows water temperatures to rise up to 27 ° C. Carp can be fished all year-round. You are welcome to hire boats at your own risk for the period from May to October in the Castle Bath, as long as there is free space and written permission has been obtained.
