Dear All! At the moment of this update, we are exactly in the middle of the 2 week lock down, which has started with November 16th – exactly on the Hucho-Hucho fishing opening date! That has of course prevent many of you to come for the opening – we remember – all the hotels and private B&B were and still are closed to host tourists..
But for us, who are in the local fishing clubs, the season has normally opened and we were experiencing some very nice fly fishing days out there on the Sava Bohinjka river.. No very big Hucho landed yet, since we are facing very clear water levels, but several 80-ers were landed and released..
Here a little bit of the summary what is going on down here – to help you following the situation with the covid restrictions and fishing;
- Hotels, B&B, Apps, Restaurants and Bars remaining closed at least until November 30th. After that date- Government of SLO has not decided yet..
- Every entry in Slovenia must have a covid-free test no older than 48h or must go in the quarantine (on his costs).
- All retail stores and shopping centres which are not having food, garden or mechanical or construction materials remaining closed at least until November 30th. What will happen after that date the Government has not decided yet…
- Online sale of the product can run normally.. ( www.faunaflyshop.si ) deliveries come on a regular delivery time.
- We accept provisional bookings to fish Hucho-Hucho in December and later, if the restrictions are off – booking is valid – if the restrictions stay – bookings get “cancel” with no cost.
- Fishing on the rivers is allowed and fishing permits can be obtained..
- No movement on the rivers or anywhere else due to the police hours from 21.00 – 6.00am. No fishing can be allowed during the Police hours.
Hucho Fishing News
Clear water conditions, no tourist fisherman on the rivers, just few locals… Huchos active but already very careful due to the high transparency of the river.. Some nice ones were already landed by the locals, but we were not able to get images, since you know.. if a local angler releasing the Hucho, usually the place of the release remains secret.. especially if the photo was made during the day time.. Here some images from the river Sava Bohinjka
Some Introduction Video we created for the 2020/2021 Hucho opening day! A bit of happy emotions along with some catches… A warm up for the season we could say
