Up and down we go fly fishing.. and up and down again…

Hey duudes… curious for getting some new exciting news regarding the levels and fly fishing condition becoming perfect!? Nope, no such news to post yet… similar to all the news in the last month – weather remaining colder than usual and showers are often.. the last shower yesterday rise the level of the Sava Bohinjka a bit while the smaller rivers remain down at normal.. The hatch is happening every day, but you must be on the river as much as possible, since the hatch hours are random and can happen either at 1400 or 20:00 or anything in the between! In the next two days, the upper parts of the Sava Bohinjka will be more under the fishing pressure, since they offer a bit less current..

A short video about a fly fishing moment of yesterday… as said – the fish is active and feeding.. if you know to find them, mixing weather and some showers are of no importance  😆

Weather wizard saying for the next few days – not too bad!;


What fly to use? Hmm… this below is ready to go to Chamonix – France.. for the local area – just visit us in the Fauna Fly Shop and we will be glad to advise haha :-)

Unpredictable – but fishable week ahead!?

As promised, Fly fishing news Slovenia back with this morning`s fresh visit on the Sava Bohinjka river – Bled fishing club waters.. While the video can only show you one river, also the rest of them in the north-west Slovenia have the same characteristics – clear but stronger than usual. But now – let us forget this “stronger than usual” issue; we have had like 4 groups fly fishing on the river yesterday and the weather conditions were mix – again.. shower, little sun, wind, sun etc… THEY HAD ALL REPORTED BACK GOOD DRY FLY ACTION!

It seems like 2016 is happening all over again – Mixed weather kept major of the Fly fishing population off the rivers till the end of May month. And than, when we and the weather pages declared – sunny week – 250 anglers were on the river the next days! So, read the lines here: yes, you need to have a light rain jacket handy all the time. But while the rain is not poring down – fishing is great! And there are hand-full anglers on the rivers only! Many seat at home and wait that they get a solid and reliable GO! for the sunny weather.. but when that happens, the sun will be hammering down with 25+ degrees, triggering some snow melt for sure. Now it stays on up to 18 Celsius maximum, which is not really causing any snow melt yet or just a week one, hardly noticeable..

This is the best and the closest data and forecast we can give you at the moment.. all the rest is a mixture of all kind of the weather possibilities..  feel free to call us in the Fauna fly shop if you want some detailed question to be answered, or leave your comment in the comment box below the news.. we shall keep up with the situation on the river also during the week, stay tuned..

Wind is the biggest fishing issue right now

What a strange fly fishing season in Slovenia we fall into? Harsh weather conditions just don`t want to end! But humans – we adapt.. history proves that! Fly fisherman which already came to visit (and also the locals) are fly fishing regardless the windy weather and cold temperatures.. after all – rivers are clear.. as a strongest surprise in the last few days was a dry fly activity in the conditions nobody expected to happen – wind and low temperatures! Ephemears hatched well, but the trout and grayling refuse to take them.. at the end blue duns, bwo-s or even mosquito of a lighter coloures were the right choice! How you were able to present them in the wind is another story, but the fact is – dry fly worked well in the last days..

Drizzling down but rivers hold on well

Today, May 9th should be the most wet day of the week.. As for now, drizzling down a bit, not really messing up with the levels.. As we thought to go making a Fly fishing conditions movie this morning, I had changed my minds and only toke one image from the wooden bridge of Log – Institute part of the Sava Bohinjka. Why? Because we do not know what will happen over the night and we shall roll the camera rather tomorrow – confirming the upcoming weekend fishable or not. But at the moment all seems to be fine and we have a 90% GO..

Windy weather but is getting better!

Turbulent Fly Fishing week in Slovenia it was, with a snow-like temperatures during the weekend of May 4-5th! Today, Monday 6th the air remains chilly, but the sun is out! Most of the north-west rivers are a bit above normal levels except the Sava Dolinka is also white in colour. Soca clear, Idrijca clear, Sava Bohinjka clear but strong in current at least in the Bled fishing part. Radovna clear, strong current but dropping fast. Krka – good levels, contact us for more news, permits, area maps, guides etc..

News Fishing Slovenia May 6th 2019 from Fly Fishing in Slovenia on Vimeo.

Fishing foretell for the coming week – Levels improving day by day while the air remains cold and windy. Thursday should be the worst, but not more than a shower or two.. other days seem to be pretty safely dry.


Pssst-don`t tell your fishing buddies: regardless the cold air and winds, as soon as the wind calms down and the sun heats the air just for a few degrees – hatches are triggered! Soca, Sava Bohinjka, Radovna will have more or less ephemeras and smaller may flies out, while inland rivers like Unica and Krka already see some sedge hatches in progress!

The Fly fishing day before May 1st

Dear Fly fishing friends, surely several of you and us consider May 1st – 2nd will be a fly fishing opportunity! And in fact – it is, but not a perfect one we could say.. Considering that the north-west Slovenia is still in the rainy/cloudy atmosphere, this fishing news after all can be considered as “not bad” one..

For all who still hesitate or are unsure about the levels of the Sava Bohinjka, here are the latest:

Slovenia Fishing news Sava Bohinjka April 30th 7.30am from Fly Fishing in Slovenia on Vimeo.

Radovna river today is already totally clear and the currents are let us say.. some 5cm above the normal ones. See our previous post from yesterday for the video.

MAY 1st and 2nd are Holidays in Slovenia – Fauna fly shop opens 8:00 – 10:00 am only. On both of the dates – May 1st AND 2nd. Welcome to visit!

Catching a window of the opportunity!?

Behold – after a rainy even snowy Sunday of April 28th – some dry weather on the horizon! Since the areas with the altitude above 800m had snow and not rain, rivers did not jump as high as expected! Sava Bohinjka will be reasonably fishable tomorrow  – at least in the middle or upper sections, while Bled part could have first visitors During May 1st and 2nd.. Levels will not be low as usual, but will be clear – fishing possible.

Radovna river was found ok even this morning April 29th which means it will be a surely safe river to go during the next days..

Weather fishing forecast for the following days shows some showers but they should not be messing too much with the levels… the bigger question comes after Sunday, May 5th.. but still some time till that date.. keep staying with Fauna news page, we will try to keep you updated – several groups in a low start to visit, so we understand you want to be updated with the latest fly fishing conditons..


A NOTE for the Festival of Work, MAY 1st and 2nd! On both days Fauna Fly shop operates only in the morning 8:00 – 10:00 hours. Try to wake up early enough to “catch us” open  😆

Fly Fishing condition in Slovenia still not stable

As expected the rainy week will prolong also into the weekend of April 27-28th.. Meaning that the larger rivers will not be dropping down the levels so fast as expected. As a sample we show you comparing videos of the Radovna and Sava Bohinjka river.. smaller one already ok for the Fly Fishing while larger one still high and opaque.. We heard that also other smaller river like Lepena, Baca, Trebuscica, Trziska Bistrica might also be fishable for the upcoming end of the week – but always better to check with us or some nearby river hotel about the actual coloration of the streams.

What kind a fly fishing weather can we expect in the next days? Prognosis goes for the north-west Slovenia;

A NOTIFICATION FROM THE FAUNA FLY SHOP IN BLED: Since April 27th is a Holiday, our Fly shop will be open like on the Sundays – 8:00 – 10:00 am.
