... a view to inspire!
The uniquely clear and superb quality of its water and the abundance of fish make Lake Wolfgangsee a real angler’s paradise. The presence of the endangered “Perlfisch” (Rutilus meidingerii) - a species of ray-finned fish - also attests to the quality of the water.
Lake Wolfgangsee (12.8 km²) is divided into two basins through the narrowing affect of the Zinkenbach stream and the Dittlbach stream to the west of St. Wolfgang where the lake is only 20 metres deep. The water is deepest in the St. Gilgen basin (7.5 km²), at 114 metres. The smaller, Strobl basin (5.4 km²) is 67 metres deep.
Species of fish found:
Arctic char, the Reinanke whitefish (Coregonus atterensis), the “Maraene” whitefish, Lake trout, Pike, Pikeperch, Perch, Eel, Burbot (Lota lota), Bream, (European) Chub (Squalius cephalus) and various other types of whitefish. The “Perlfisch” ("Rutilus meidingerii") - a species of ray-finned fish - is protected.
