The river Unica begins in the Planina Cave, the biggest water cave in Slovenia with one of the largest confluences of underground rivers in Europe. It gushes out onto the Planina Plain, a classic example of a Karst plain that transforms into a lake after periods of heavy rain, thus giving the fish an additional source of food.

After 2 kilometers, it converges with Malenščica with the chalk stream meandering its way across the plain. Because it is a karst river, it slowly starts disappearing in the porous terrain only halfway across, with the Grčarevec sinkholes at the end sucking the last drops of it.

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.

 

Fish

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.

Things to know

There can be up to 3 people per guide, if there’s more of you, your group will be assigned with 2 guides.

In case of rain we try to find a water that’s suitable for fishing, or postpone the trip. If there’s no other option, we return the money for the guiding.

You can bring all your equipment, not bring any at all or only bring some bits and pieces. We also provide the equiment rental service so we make it easier for you to plan your fishing in case you’re travelling by plane.

You will be assigned one of our guides, which are all experts on their fields, with years of experience in different waters across Slovenia. You can find out more about them in the guides section.

Fishing permits can be bought in a few bars or fishing shops by the river, but you can also buy them online. However, we suggest you wait with the purchase of the licenses until the day of fishing and buy them together with a help of our guide. The price of the fly fishing permits for Unica river is 100€.

Of course, you can arrange with your guide to make one or more breaks in order to eat and drink. If you wish, you can also find a nearby restaurant and get a proper lunch, however in case you are fishing more remote locations it’s better to have some food and drink packed to go, so you just make a pause by the river.

Our guides always carry some flies around so you can buy them on the day of the fishing.

We can provide some proposals for you or make a reservation on your behalf.
