One of the tributaries of the iconic Soča River, Idrijca offers enjoyable fishing for both beginners and experienced fly fishermen. Its light green pools rich with sources of food are abundant with fish. Although rare, it is also a place to catch trophy-sized marble trout, which is said to be so big in Idrijca because they ate eels, which were once present in these waters, before the hydropower plants on Soča prevented its migration.
The river is suitable for fishing throughout the season, especially in the early spring when Soča is usually still white and cold from the snowmelt.
You will begin fishing in the morning when you will meet your guide at a pre-arranged spot or in front of your accommodation.
After a brief lecture on the most important things you have to look out for while fly fishing in Slovenia, you’ll begin with the fishing and during the day you’ll visit the best places on the river which are known to produce fish.
With the constant guidance and assistance of our guides, you’ll be prepared to catch some nice specimens of trout, grayling or other types of fish residing in the river.
The trip will end in the late afternoon/evening time, with a smile on your face and a camera full of nice photos.
I am fishing since I was 3 years old and with age, my passion for fishing only got bigger. As a kid, I was learning about many fishing techniques, but with time, fly and spin fishing have become my favorite ways to spend time by the water. I spend more than 100 days in a year fishing on various venues, hence I know most of the rivers, creeks and lakes in Slovenia. My 3 favorite places are Soča, Sava Bohinjka and Idrijca. Nymphing is my number one technique I’m implementing whenever I can. I’m fluent in English and German.
I’ve been fishing since I was 6. My favourite kind of fishing in young age was lake fishing, for carp and other lake species. Later, when I discovered the art of fly fishing, this technique took over and I’ve been a passionate fly fishing angler ever since. In my fishing career I’ve visited the majority of Slovenian rivers. As a competitor in the National fly fishing championship I’ve gained many experience and fished in difficult conditions on pressured waters. My top 3 rivers are Idrijca, Savinja and Soča
