The natural character of the river is ideal for fish habitat and the fly fishing experience. The water is crystal clear allowing for unhindered sight casting. Furthermore it has varying depth and width which offers optimal habitat functions for fish.


Fish of the Ybbs

The fish Bioceonosis of this region correlates with the Metarhithrel which is the lower trout region. In this Metarhithrel region there is a mix of fish species including:

Brown Trout (Salmo trutta)

Rainbow Trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss)

Grayling (Thymallus thymallus)

Bullhead (Cottus gobio)

European chub (Leuciscus cephalus)

Brook Trout (Salvelinus fontinalis)

Eurasian Minnow (Phoxinus phoxinus)


One can also find fish species specific to the Lunz Lake which find their way into the river stretch via the lake discharge waterway Lunzer Seebach. In general, the most important species from a fishing perspective appear in the following proportions: Brown Trout 50-60%, Rainbow Trout 30-40%, and Grayling 5-10%. All three species are self reproducing sustaining populations. There is ample food in the river so  that the fish show vigorous growth. 


Natural Character of the Ybbs

In this area the Ois corresponds to a stretched river type, the stream order as described by Strahler is 4. The hydrological regime is Nivo-pluvial which has an average discharge of 4.5 cubic meters per second. Due to the commuting regime there are deep pools, runs, riffles, and flat sand banks which are constantly alternating. There is also varying gravel size in the river and the gravel banks are abundant. The width of the river varies between 8 and 20 meters depending on the water level.
