Fly Fishing Slovenia, March 2019

As the main fly fishing season in Slovenia kicks-in now, with April 1st, impatient ones already roaming the river Sava in March! Regardless colder water there are signs for action! Except larger Trout which is still in the spawning mood – ignoring the food that passes by, medium sized Trout already feeds nicely! Mostly on nymphs and bottom food, hatch still week or none.. This winter Slovenia has been poor with snow – meaning that the snow-run waters will be lasting only a short while.. weather seems to be fine, pack the rods and plan your fly fishing trip! Early season – less anglers and less careful fish!

First visiting Fly Fisherman arriving to Bled, Guided trip below was a success, more than handful Trout landed during the fly fishing day and in the afternoon a crown jewel Grayling of a massive weight grab the nymph – a perfect day we might call it!

Latest levels of the Sava Bohinjka river

While the mountains around Bled town still showing white snowy peaks – that somehow resembles also in the currents of the glacial feed rivers – strong levels despite sunny and dry weather. But don`t understand this wrong – fishing is totally Ok, even with the dry fly.. just the access to some areas of the river is more difficult because of the strong currents. In general – safe to come over and fly fish!

Spring time FLY FISHING Sava Bohinjka river

While the snow melt water is finally almost gone – hatches are in boost! Already seen several strong hatches of the May flies and Stone flies  in late evening time. Also during the day one can catch well with some stimulators or other caddis patterns.. in short – dry fly period is almost here! Weather seems to be steady with no big rain drama on the way. Light showers can happen every day but they are only a welcome thing to have out there on the river – they boost the hatch! Welcome to visit and try yourself!  😆

Tracking down the Marble Trout

While we were all waiting for the Sava Bohinjka to drop down her levels she has had during the last week, a short tour to the Soca river tributary happened! While the day was murky and drizzling, a rocky pool founded in the afternoon, made the day! Totally aligned to the rock, a shadow hoovered out there! Light nymph, just sinking below the surface, exact presentation and the shadow moved! The rest can be seen on the video! Thank you Matteo and Marco to join us on the tour and made this happen!!
