Fishing

Fischen

In Glarnerland, fishers require a permit from the hunting and fishing administration, unless they're fishing in the Klöntaler or Walensee with a fishing pole or a simple fishing rod without a barbed hook and without using bait fish. In that case, the free fishing right applies to everyone from the shore on out.

A permit costs CHF 30 for a day, CHF 115 for a week and CHF 200 for a month. Daily, weekly and monthly cards can be purchased at these permit issuing offices:
