Castelbello/Kastelbell is Venosta Valley's center for fishermen and hobby-fishing. The Fishing Shop in Castelbello offers all accessories and information needed for fishing. The national fishing license can be purchased here for a cost of 35€ and is valid for 10 years.

The fishing association in Merano/Meran owns the fishing rights for the Adige River. This includes the Venosta Valley, from Haidersee lake in the north to Tel/Töll in the south, including the tributaries. There are more than 150km of watercourses rich in brown trout, rainbow trout and brook trout. The northernmost area around Resia Lake retains its own fishing rights. In adjacent Haidersee lake, one of the most beautiful natural lakes in the Alpine region, fishermen can also find a place to cast their lines free of care. For fishing in Haidersee lake, a fishing license type B or D as well as a fishing card for the day will be required. You can purchase the daily card directly at the boathouse at Casa dei Pescatori/Fischerhäuser, at Alpenrose Inn, or at Bakery Angerer in the village center of St. S. Valentino alla Muta/St. Valentin a.d.H.
