Happy angling – fishing in Nidwalden


Nidwalden offers a host of fishing opportunities in Lake Lucerne, as well as in crystal-clear mountain lakes and cool streams. You'll soon forget the hectic pace of everyday life…

The clean waters of Nidwalden are home to many different species of fish, including trout, whitefish, pike, zander and perch. Fishing in Nidwalden requires a cantonal fishing licence; licences of various durations are available.

If you're visiting Nidwalden, you can obtain a "tourist licence" that's valid for one week: you'll need to confirm the address of your accommodation. Licences are issued in Stans by the cantonal department of hunting and fishing.
