Easter Fly Fishing forecast Slovenia

Few more days before the prolonged Easter Fly Fishing weekend kicks in! In Slovenia it will be a fishable one! Weather forecast seems fine – if it lasts, water levels of most rivers are fine and nicely fishable. Average daily temperature rising and so does the dry fly activity. Grayling still in the spawning mode, not really interested for the feeding unless you really cast close to it. But in theory should – not since they still spawn.

Here is the screen of the Easter weekend forecast – North West part of Slovenia;

Video of the double bridge area on the Institute part of the Sava Bohinjka, taken on April 18th 14:30 hours showing you the nicely fishable levels.

Few well working Trout fishing fly patterns of the past week.. just to point you a bit in the direction of what to tie.. Unless you stock up at the Fauna Fly Shop… a lot of goodies on display!

Fly fishing news Slovenia

Fly Fishing activity slowly increasing, but the weather..

Moody April with it`s showers and colder wind periods keeping down the stronger activities of the fly fisherman & women :-) But there might be a problem if we only look and follow the weather forecast pages – they might show rain or drizzle, but in the real-life rivers can be nicely fishable! As an example, the video showing Sava Bohinjka river in her middle and lower areas – perfectly fishable.. weather forecast for today was showing 2/3 rain drops – nothing happened.. at least 2 fly fishing groups post-pone the visit due to rainy forecast.. at the end they should not have to.. BUT behold – tomorrow Thursday 11th will decide about end of the week being fishable or not: larger shipment of the rain on the way this evening-tomorrow if to believe the weather Man..

Stay in touch, if the levels will go up, we will be posting here on Friday Morning to update you for the last fishing plans modification.. Below also a lovely image of a visiting couple from the USA catching the “window of the opportunity” at the Sava a few days ago! See you the next year!

Today`s water level of the Sava Bohinjka river:

There are also some signs of fish being interest for the surface feeding! Smaller Trout and Graylin can already be tricked with some Dry Fly Flies while the bigger boys still nosing down the bottom more or less. Few more degrees in the water and bigger Trout will be up too!
