Fishing

The idyllic bodies of water along the Five Lakes Hike has proven to be a popular destination for sports fishermen: Wangersee (2,206 m asl), Wildsee (2,438 m asl), Schottensee (2,335 m asl), Schwarzsee (2,368 m asl) and Baschalvasee (2,174 m asl). The Wildsee, for example, has been populated with juvenile namaycush (Canadian lake trout) for more than 40 years.

In the months of August and September, fishermen can fish for magnificent namaycush, char and trout in the mountain lakes of Pizol. Day licences are available for CHF 40 (with a CHF 20 deposit) at the Bad Ragaz and Wangs valley stations. Sports fishermen with a valid licence from the canton of St.Gallen (require, among other things, a proficiency certificate) do not need to purchase a day licence.
