River Soča is the most iconic river in Slovenia, famous for its emerald color, white gravel river bed, and its magnificent alpine surroundings. Its best fly-fishing stretch covers a distance of 50 kilometers, from the camp Soča to the town of Tolmin.
Except for a few stretches where the river flows through gorges, its cascades and pools are easily accessible and home to a generous population of trout.

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 lesson on the most important things, you have to look out for while fly fishing for trout 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, and 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.

Fish

Marble Trout

Marble trout is the biggest and the most iconic species of Trout in Slovenia, while also being the rarest. It almost disappeared because of the introduction of Brown Trout into the same water and the subsequent hybridization of the two but was preserved with repopulation and careful supervision. It is only found in the river Soča and its tributaries, with the average catch 30-70 cm long, all the way up to 130 cm.

Grayling

Grayling is one of the most popular European fly-fishing species since it mostly feeds on insects and could be quite picky with them. It’s not the biggest fish but is certainly amongst the most beautiful, especially since male Graylings have a colorful flag-like dorsal fin. It grows to a minimum of 45 cm with the largest in Slovenia being caught at 63 cm long.

Brown Trout

The brown trout is a classic fly-fishing species, that every fly-fisher already knows. It’s the most widespread fish in Slovenia and can be found in most of our waters. Its size ranges from 25 to 80 cm, with the largest found in the Karst rivers like Unica. Its yellow-brown, olive green, dark grey or copper red body is sprinkled with red and sometimes black or white spots.

Žiga

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.

Branko

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
