September`s increasing fly fishing

As the weather kind-a settled down to nice and autumn-like, the fly fishing gradually increasing! Positive feedback from most popular fly fishing areas – Sava Bohinjka with her 3 fishing clubs would see good fishing in the Bled club waters and the Institute while the very upper part – Bohinj was very busy in the last week due to the festival of flowers and fishing – lots of visiting anglers made a proper jam around bridges Brod and Savica! The festival ends this Sunday Sept 29th.. onward we expect normal amount of anglers also in the very upper – Bohinj fishing area. Construction works at the Log bridge are not messing up with the water colour – safe also in that chapter..

The Radovna river should be mentioned at this point – offering a nice hide out from the crowds and a stronger dry fly feeding mode of the trout than on the Sava Bohinjka river.. Lightweight rod will handle those fighting trout easily and put a smile on your face for sure! Getting lost out there in the Radovna river valley with just your fly rod nearby is a unique and unforgettable experience.. Trout will probably not be massive in size but will surely fight like a small devils and hitting on your dry with a lightning fast takes!

Big Sava river – Radovljica fishing area is starting to warm up for the autumn`s Grayling finale, already showing first good signs of Grayling feeding more intensively that in the early September! Nymph fishing fanatics – get ready!

Soca river news – hm… the massive river tourism activities of August left some signs… fish is rare and one needs to work well to get a dozen of the strikes per day.. if you want to have the most out of the Soca fishing day – hire a Guide.. they know for those secret pockets and bends where the Marbles seek their hiding place from the human traffic..

Sava Bohinjka-Levels.

End of September is a good time to offer yourself a full or half day Guided tour on one of the Bled nearby rivers! Pleasant temperatures during the day, good water levels and skilled fly fishing Guide along is the perfect recipe for a successful fly fishing day! Feel free to contact any time and ask for the availability!

Fishing weather Wizard guessing:

The last days of the September and first week of October seems fine! Put your fly fishing trip in motion without having too much of the fear regarding high levels or the rainy days… in fact there is only one truly rainy day in the forecast – use it to visit me in the Fauna fly shop Bled haha.. we shall chat a bit? We had prepared good Autumn`s discounts for ya!



What flies will they Fish be taking during the upcoming days!? Well we hope the ones that we sell in the Fauna fly shop Bled :-) Few examples below;

JUNE IS HERE! Fly Fishing finally see some sun!

May declared as the most wet and cold  since 1991 – IS GONE! June started lovely, sun and levels in the process of dropping down! Early days of June will still be seeing some showers and T-storms locally but they should not be messing with the levels of the main rivers.. Let us hope this will become true! So far – so good! Today Saturday 1st we have already have lots of action on the smaller rivers and the tributaries, while main rivers (Sava Bohinjka, Soca, Idrijca, Krka(very high) will be dropping in the next days.. Today all main rivers were already clear, except the Sava Dolinka and the big Sava river, but having strong spring-like currents. Also the temperature of the water remaining low – around 10 degrees.. (the Radovna river 6 degrees haha).

Bottom line – GO! we had wait long enough.. hatches are already there, but because of the stronger currents dry fly fishing still a bit down.. should be improving in the next week.. stay tuned!

Windy weather but is getting better!

Turbulent Fly Fishing week in Slovenia it was, with a snow-like temperatures during the weekend of May 4-5th! Today, Monday 6th the air remains chilly, but the sun is out! Most of the north-west rivers are a bit above normal levels except the Sava Dolinka is also white in colour. Soca clear, Idrijca clear, Sava Bohinjka clear but strong in current at least in the Bled fishing part. Radovna clear, strong current but dropping fast. Krka – good levels, contact us for more news, permits, area maps, guides etc..

Fishing foretell for the coming week – Levels improving day by day while the air remains cold and windy. Thursday should be the worst, but not more than a shower or two.. other days seem to be pretty safely dry.


Pssst-don`t tell your fishing buddies: regardless the cold air and winds, as soon as the wind calms down and the sun heats the air just for a few degrees – hatches are triggered! Soca, Sava Bohinjka, Radovna will have more or less ephemeras and smaller may flies out, while inland rivers like Unica and Krka already see some sedge hatches in progress!

Catching a window of the opportunity!?

Behold – after a rainy even snowy Sunday of April 28th – some dry weather on the horizon! Since the areas with the altitude above 800m had snow and not rain, rivers did not jump as high as expected! Sava Bohinjka will be reasonably fishable tomorrow  – at least in the middle or upper sections, while Bled part could have first visitors During May 1st and 2nd.. Levels will not be low as usual, but will be clear – fishing possible.

Radovna river was found ok even this morning April 29th which means it will be a surely safe river to go during the next days..

Weather fishing forecast for the following days shows some showers but they should not be messing too much with the levels… the bigger question comes after Sunday, May 5th.. but still some time till that date.. keep staying with Fauna news page, we will try to keep you updated – several groups in a low start to visit, so we understand you want to be updated with the latest fly fishing conditons..


A NOTE for the Festival of Work, MAY 1st and 2nd! On both days Fauna Fly shop operates only in the morning 8:00 – 10:00 hours. Try to wake up early enough to “catch us” open  😆

Fly Fishing condition in Slovenia still not stable

As expected the rainy week will prolong also into the weekend of April 27-28th.. Meaning that the larger rivers will not be dropping down the levels so fast as expected. As a sample we show you comparing videos of the Radovna and Sava Bohinjka river.. smaller one already ok for the Fly Fishing while larger one still high and opaque.. We heard that also other smaller river like Lepena, Baca, Trebuscica, Trziska Bistrica might also be fishable for the upcoming end of the week – but always better to check with us or some nearby river hotel about the actual coloration of the streams.

What kind a fly fishing weather can we expect in the next days? Prognosis goes for the north-west Slovenia;


Video from the Radovna Mill`s area and the Sava Bohinjka Boh.Bela bridge.. Both taken in the morning of April 26th

An idea about a fly or two that might or did work well in the previous days – various Trout streams and the rivers


A NOTIFICATION FROM THE FAUNA FLY SHOP IN BLED: Since April 27th is a Holiday, our Fly shop will be open like on the Sundays – 8:00 – 10:00 am.

Fly Fishing Slovenia – be aware higher levels!

We expected some rain to fall – but quite a lot of it fall down – boosting up most of the river levels in north-west Slovenia! Sava Bohinjka, Radovna, Sava Dolinka, Soca, Idrijca having high levels and opaque water colour… the video is from the Institute part of the Sava Bohinjka river.. Hints and tips:

  • Seek for a smaller type of the rivers like Lepena, Lipnika, Baca, Trebuscica etc..
  • Call us in the Fauna fly shop if you are not sure what to do with your fly fishing plans or you are already on the area of Slovenia.. we might be having a fishing solution for you!
  • Monitor the weather forecast for the next days and when you see the sun is out – add 2 days which is usually enough for the levels to drop down on “almost normal”
  • Stay with us and follow this page since we will upload GO! news for the fly fishing as soon as we will be able to declare the levels normal again.

Weather forecast for the next days:



Latest video from the Sava Bohinjka river – actual levels found on April 24th at 14:30 hours – double bridge area of the Institute fishing beat..
