Goiserer River Traun Fishing

The other day I found a video on youtube on flyfishing in the Goiserer Traun. A nicely made Video, especially for lovers of nature and ... fishes. As I live in the area and yesterday was a sunny day, my wife and I decided to take some photos for you. You find the video on fishing at the bottom of this post.

Above you see only a simple bridge crossing some river. Well the bridge is the main one in Bad Goisern which is located in the 'SalzKammerGut', part of the Hallstatt World Heritage area in Upper Austria.
Since a couple of thousand years (3-4000), this river was used by men to transport salt from the saltmines (10 miles south) to far away European regions.
Effigies of crucifixion (so called 'Marterln') you find all over Austria, especially in exposed places like here, on top in the middle of the bridge. In the above photo we look towards the northwest.
The thing on the side of the dam is a 'fish pass' (German: FischTreppe), that helps the fishes to 'climb' the difference in height of two different water levels.

We are still looking in the northwest direction, the direction where the river flows to. On the first mountain ahead there is a webcam installed from which you can check the whole area. It's a pretty good webcam, that you can turn around, zoom in and out. Here is the linkto my post with instructions and the final link to the machine (if you want to take a LIFE-LOOK from there): Goiserer WebCam
Please heed the times. Here we got MiddleEuropean summer- or wintertime. At night you see only the nights, but might get some impressions nevertheless.

Ok, let's turn around, 180 degrees, and we look into the direction from where the water comes.

The river Traun comes from the Hallstaetter lake (German: Hallstätter See)

Right along the waters it's very enjoyable to take some walks.

You find 'hidden' paths, places to make a fire or to step into clean fresh water ...

You find places to dream and to listen to the talks of the river. Quite often when I'm at a river I remember these words from the Easy Rider Movie/Song: "The river flows, flows to the sea, wherever the river flows, that's where I want to be." Hm. Actually I'm happy being here, just the melody of the song and of course this movie Easy Rider can make one sentimental. The Sixties, bygone days ...
I love the sparkling of the light in the water.
And it's quiet here, no noise, maybe some humming or so from afar of, though we are actually pretty close to civilisation.
You can click on the photos to make them bigger (maybe you see some bugs - no, just kidding).

If you would wish, you could take pretty long walks here and do a lot more, however we turn around now and walk back to our car which is parked at the bridge.
Our dog enjoyed a bath, and did some swimming (I threw some sticks into the water) and now we've got a wet dog in our car.

Thank you for joining us on this short walk. If you want to continue you can do this here where I tell a bit more about Ancient Navy Inland Navigation.

What a wonderful area! Peaceful yet with powerful sounds from the river.

Your photos and the video compliment each other with showing us how it's really like. Must be a terrific place for fishermen!

Ah, one can see that the dog had a great time too :-)
