Delayed start of the season by one month

Due to the current corona situation in Switzerland, the Reichenbachlodge will probably remain closed until 30 April. If the situation calms down by then, we will be there for you again from 1 May!
The patent office will also be closed during this time. Patent applicants are asked to contact us in advance by phone or email.

The region around the Susten and Grimsel passes offers a wide variety of fishing in a very small area. From the large Alpine lakes Thunersee and Brienzersee to high-alpine spring streams and wild mountain rivers to hidden mountain lakes, everything can be found from the Haslital.

The beauty of the watercourses makes the hearts of fly-fishers beat faster. In the pools, naturally grown brown trout, colourful brook trout and in lower areas, occasionally ashes cavort.


Private leased waters:
A limited number of private day tickets from the Oberhasli Fishing Club for the magnificent waters in the Susten area can be purchased from us. We also offer guiding tours to wonderful places and wonderful waters in the Susten area. To protect these naturally managed mountain streams from overfishing, day tickets are only available in limited numbers. It is therefore recommended to book the corresponding licenses for private leased waters with us in advance.
