Most of the way from its source in the Logar Valley, the 90-meter high Rinka waterfall, to the confluence into the Sava river 102 kilometers later, the Savinja river is a prime fly-fishing spot. The fast-flowing upper part of the river is rich in oxygen and food, which makes the water abundant with all sorts of fish species.
The fly fishing season on Savinja is open from March to November, being shorter in the upper part of the valley and longer closer to the town of Mozirje. The most popular fly fishing spots on Savinja River can be found near the town of Ljubno ob Savinji.
You will begin your fly fishing on Savinja in the morning when you will meet your guide at a pre-arranged spot or in front of your accommodation.
After a brief lesson 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
