Schwarza

The Schwarza River is located in Lower Austria, and is only a little more than an hour drive from Vienna. The river runs along a valley that cuts through Schneeberg and Rax mountains, and is characterized by sizable pools. Its water is famous for clearing quickly, even after heavy rainfalls, as well as gorgeous scenery. Sections of the river can be fished through the Austrian Fishing Association, but for an unforgettable trip, we recommend that you contact Secret Rivers Fly Fishing, which has access to an exclusive stretch. Their guide, Sebastian, knows the river better than anyone and can also recommend lodging for overnight or multiple day outings. You can also email them at guiding@secretrivers.comBrown trout, rainbow trout, grayling.
