Another end of the week is here – fly fishing rolls with a normal pace but visiting fisherman should keep an eye on the coming Sunday July 28th when we expect some heavier T-storms in the nord -west and east parts of Slovenia.. (Soca, Sava Bohinjka, Savinja, Baca, Idrijca etc..) While today Friday 26th already heard some Thunders, rain still keeps away.. Very steamy air pushed the fly fishing into the earliest morning hours which can be the very best part of the day! Many fly fisherman are on the area with their families or wife, GF, BF etc along, so compromises needs to be taken.. (different nations, the same patterns of behaviour hahahha).. hitting the rivers at 5:30 am, returning to breakfast at 1000 and late afternoon till the 2100 – that works best! Sava Bohinjka, Soca, under the pressure of the regular folks but mostly during the day time.. mornings are quiet and fine..
Levels so far – normal for the time of the season and not yet too low.. Trout is picky and either hits on the midge or big Goddard caddis – sizes in between more or less do not get their interest.. Grayling hunters – early mornings try with some small klinks or red-tags down on #18-20.. few nice catches reported in during last few days – all using the mentioned flies..
Sava Dolinka not yet cooperating well, since the power station dam Moste uses a weird time-table for opening the turbines – during the night closed, opens at 800.. spoils the day nicely :-/ The rumours are out that this might come from the silent cooperation between the raft Companies and the Dam Co.. the following prefers to have higher levels during the day to perform the drifting boat tours easier.. hack – again fly fishermen pulling the shortest straw.. :-/
Stay in touch early next week, when we report back what has happened during the Sunday`s T-storm performance and with the latest river situation.. and have a great cold end of the week!
What flies to use at the moment
