Recent storms are over, Sava Bohinjka recovering in few days!

What a hectic weather we have had in the recent few days – October like one could say! Massive storms chilled down the summer heat and pushed the levels of the north-west rivers of Slovenia high and white! Well, the good news is, that the drama is over, and hence onward the weather should go back to “normal”, touching 30 degrees during Saturday and Sunday August 8,9.

We expect that first attempts of some reasonable fly fishing will be happening tomorrow, August 6th on the very upper areas of the Sava Bohinjka (Bohinj fishing club) and maybe on the Radovna river – for the fly fisherman who can handle the stronger river currents of the Radovna..

Unica river could be a good target too, since the last week super low levels did not enable some active fly fishing down there.. the river now went up to the perfect levels in will probably be a good hide out for Thursday and Friday respectively. But keep an eye on the Unica, since she has different characteristic of rising the levels than other rivers: since sourcing from the underground cave systems, levels arrive a day or two after the rain has stopped.. Makes sense to call us to the Faunaflyshop for latest info if you would be heading down there..

Storms are gone, rivers back in good shape!

Luckily the storms that were passing the last night didn`t cause too much of the damage on the water levels! Sava Bohinjka and Radovna are almost on the normal.. stronger in current but in the process of dropping down and the river should be on the normal situation during Sunday 26 onward.. Also the weather for the coming week seems to be ok – for the fly fishing. Not for sun seeking since there might be some showers again.

What was hiding under the rocks

July Fly Fishing staying fresh and active!

Kind-a special July 2020 – as the whole year being very particular – showers and storms keep the temperatures on the rivers at the normal degrees. No super hot heat waves like in 2019, levels of most Slovenian rivers remaining low but fishable. Unica dropped below 40cm level which might mean very selective feeding of Grayling.. the rest of the major rivers like Sava Bohinjka, Soca, Idrijca, Radovna etc. will prefer smaller patterns, darker in general and of most importance – 7X tippet material! No wonder fly will do any good if you gonna attach it on a 4X tippet material hah!

Strong Sun and cold water – Optimal for the Fly Fishing?

Yes, July in particular nice this year! Like the nature would like to redeem herself for the wet June we had been facing previously. Evening showers or even storms keeping the rivers in good shape and keeping the fish active also during the day. Normally, July would be having some action on the river early in the morning and late afternoons, but now one can nicely fly fish also during the day. Sava Bohinjka having average angler visit, if you come to our Fly shop we can decide which of the 3 areas of the river is less busy on a chosen day..

COVID- no new restrictions except wearing masks when you enter in some shops. SLOVENIA does not have any major infection increasing and is consider safest Balkan area state for the visit! If you follow basic hygienic rules – you almost have no chance to infect yourself if visiting Bled area and surrounding villages! 

www.FAUNAFLYSHOP.si news:  A WEEK of promotional Simms Cap sale!  Use cupone caps20 at the basket check-out process! 

Weather forecast for the following days – ALL GOOD and SAFE TO COME!

Into July 2020 we Fly fish!

Cheers from Fauna Fly Shop Bled! Some updates regarding different fly fishing concerning issues!

Fishing conditions on the rivers of Slovenia are fine and close to perfect if we consider deeping into July; showers are keeping the daily temperature around 25 degrees and the rivers on their optimal levels. Mix weather is not good for the non-fishing river activities like kayak, drifting boats etc- again a positive thing for a fly fisherman. If you get a cloudy day, fish will be active also during the day. If very sunny, it is worth waking up early and rather catch some nap in the mid day time, returning to the rivers later afternoon. Fauna fly shop opens daily at 8am, but you can also get a permit for the next day and wake up early.

COVID UPDATE: From tomorrow, July 4th, BELGIUM and the NEDERLANDS coming to the GREEN, covid safe country LIST and the citizens can enter Slovenia with NO PROBLEMS.  

Weather wizard for the next days: ALL SAFE FOR A FLY FISHING TRIPS!
