SLOVENIAN FLY FISHING NEWS,
FINALLY FINALLY AT LAST SOME HOPE,
23.5.2018 Almost unbelievable, but the levels had drop down! not yet low and normal but totally fishable in all 3 fishing clubs of the Sava Bohinjka river. showers still staying and steady sunshine weather not yet happening, but for the fly fishing this mixing conditions are good!
SAVA BOHINJKA IN ACTION,
17.5.2018 Previous post talking about the theory this one about the practice! While some fly fisherman still roll fingers at home waiting for those 10cm of the level to go down, other roll the fingers on the fly reel drag, landing large Trout which are more careless than usual... start packing your fisherman bags and gadgets - via Sloveniaaaaa :-D
SHOULD I COME TO FLY FISH OR IS THE RIVER TOO HIGH!?,
16.5.2018 This questions rings in our phone all day long - but the answer is not an easy one.. at the moment Sava Bohinjka is for some anglers fishable for the others still too strong in current. We can not be deciding for you either is ok for you or not. All we can do is to show you the river and tell you that the fly fisherman are already fishing it. At the same time, some are still waiting for the levels to drop.. in which group you fit? Fish is active and is feeding, hatches are following after every shower (those are frequent) but evenings yet not having the classic hatch moment.. this year the season is like 4 weeks behind the normal fly fishing calendar. Let me conclude like this: If you only fish with dry fly, than you will suffer a bit since the currents are strong and the dry flies get flashed away fast. If you will be following the happening on the river you might catch a hatch minutes but it might be griffins gnat, emergers or ephemeras on #10.. no rule yet. If you fish nymphs dries and some times streamer, than you are safe to come and you will be catching too, but have a rain protection with you.. SQUEEZE ME LIKE A LEMON, BUT I CAN NOT SAY MORE THAN THIS ABOUT THE SITUATION GOING ON WITH THE LEVELS OF NORTH-WEST SLOVENIAN RIVERS :-D
LATEST SAVA BOHINJKA VIEW,
8.5.2018 If fishing on one hand is harder due to a strong current, positive about that is the trout and grayling feed more careless and are also not as selective as in low level situation.. some showers on the way in the days to follow but should not mess with the levels hopefully.. stay tuned for some latest catches to be published soon!
INTO MAY MONTH WITH ACTIVE TROUT,
4.5.2018 Every one who can deal with a bit stronger but clear currents of the Sava Bohinjka river, can expect strikes like this - larger Trout is a bit more careless than in the low level conditions.. Gorgeous spring time blossoming river banks of the Sava Bohinjka just add some charm to the unforgettable images like this one! Upcoming end of week will see some rain - stay tuned during Monday when we will be posting latest conditions of the Sava Bohinjka river. PS: Just talked with the river warden of the UNICA river - saying the fishing conditions are very good! Fauna fly shop sells FISHING PERMITS for the Unica river and a special selection of dry flies to meet the selective GRAYLING of the Unica river!
TROUT IS STRIKING WELL,
26.4.2018 Fly fishing Rolls on while April is coming to it`s end! Fishing action on the Sava Bohinjka increasing despite the levels being strong. Important is that the water is clear and Trout started to feed more intensively!
