Nestled idyllically in "Hundsfeld Moor" nature sanctuary - an area of water covering some 3 hectares, known as the Hundsfeldsee.
The reedy shoreline is an ideal habitat for salmonids, but demands excellent fishing skills from anglers.
Species: rainbow-, brook- and lake trout, Arctic char
The Northern Taurach has its headwaters just below the south side of the Seekarspitze (2,350 m), primarily in the form of two streams, the Grünwald Taurach and the Hundsfeld Taurach. These two feeder streams unite close to the Tauern Pass in Obertauern.
Along a length of ca. 4 km, the upper reaches of the Taurach are rich in variety - from calmer stretches with relatively exposed banks through Hundsfeld Moor as well as the area of the Roman Bridge and Weningeralm, to rapidly flowing stages with numerous pools, just above the boundary of our fishing area next to the Johannes Waterfall.
With an average width of 2 to 7 meters, the stream is generally easy to ford.
Species: rainbow-, brook trout and Arctic char
The fishing waters at the Hundsfeldsee as well as the upper segment of the Nothern Taurach are owned by the village of Untertauern.
