Strikes reporting in – Huchos on the move!

Rainy November about to say goodbye and December knocks in with the colder and more dry days! Waters of the Sava Bohinjka river going back to their normal levels and the Huchos moving with them too! While in the higher levels Hucho-hucho usually roams around and away from his home pool, with the dropping water they return to the home pool areas.. this makes them a bit more easy to locate and locating them is a half of the strike-on project!

Fishing condition for the week ahead seems to be steady.. a bit of everything but not flooding up or snow blizzard events… GOOO HUCHEN FISCHEN – or Fishing the same for us :-)

KA-BANG! Another Giant Hucho-hucho grabbed the lure yesterday

Jep – who comes 1st gets 1st! Early days of the 19/20 Hucho-Hucho fishing season were tough because of the weather and rain and levels and high water etc… But seems like also the Huchos were thinking that the anglers will be staying at home because of that? NOT. They went out on the river and they haven`t went out there on the wet for nothing..

Yesterday`s Huchen beast of 110cm and 14,50 kgs!

The levels slowly, but steadily dropping!

Maybe is not even worth mentioning, but in the Institute part of the Sava Bohinjka is still possible to fly fish! Having the 5th week of rain, we had almost forget what does that mean.. to fly fish..

EXCEPT if you are a hucho-hucho angler! If so – this video should be very encouraging! Levels dropping down and are like this already good enough for the spin fishing. Fly fisherman will be out in a couple of the days if the weather stays at least light rainy.. Light rain has now become a luxury conditions hahaha.. Forecast does not yet show some heavy storms or a zillion litter water per square meter, so programmed Hucho tours still stand!

Keep in touch!

Opening Hucho fishing day was a struggle for the fly rods

As you can all see from the news, November of 2019 is as wet as it can be! Raining continuously for weeks, natural result was increasing levels of all rivers in Slovenia.. Usually that is not a problem for the Hucho-Hucho fishing – as long as you do not grab the fly rod to do the job; up to a certain level fly rods can still handle the situation, but once the river jumps up massively, than the spin rods are the only solution if you still dare to approach the rivers!

The same happened on the Sava Bohinjka which saw the premiere opening Hucho-hucho day last Friday, the 15th. AL any I went out immediately to test the currents and how they would be meeting the Fly Fishing Teams which were about to come the next days… Unfortunately this what you see on the video below was far the best what happened, and in the next days river went even higher and darker, forcing us to cancel the arrival of the fly fisherman to later dates in the month…

But before you make some conclusion on this: at this and even a bit worst fishing conditions of the opening afternoon day, a local member landed a 110cm er with a spinning rod! Unfortunately we were not able to get the copy rights to post the catch here, but it will surely circle on the social media, since it was a magnificent animal indeed!!!! Hucho fishing needs a different approach than trout fishing – no level is too high for the Hucho to go out hunting!

River is now settled on her high levels and it will need a few days to start getting back to normal – if no new rain arriving. Once the current starts to return to it`s original river bed- that is a very good moment to target the Huchos – while they returning to their home pools, often grab some snack along – if lucky, your streamer or lure :-) everything is ready to go as soon as the river calms down a bit. Stay tuned!!

GETTING READY FOR THE HUCHO-HUCHO OPENING SEASON THIS FRIDAY!

All right – the Game is knocking on the doors! This Friday November 15th all areas will be open for the Hucho-Hucho fishing and fly fishing! At the moment the weather is like you all can see on your forecasts – rainy. Surely not friendly for the comfort of the Fisherman, but has this ever been an issue when talking Hucho-Huco? Not. :-)

AL and I went out there on the river yesterday to get an impression about how the levels would respond to the Fly rods.. Was ok. Trout and also Huchos are closer to the banks than usual, to avoid strong currents. If you know where to search, the fish will be there!

Sava Bohinjka is on her upper level tag, but still fishable. Local hunters and visiting Guests still have a green Lights for the opening. Nex few days will be deciding about the opening remaining fishable or we will see sky-high conditions.. some more rain on the radar unfortunately :-/

Lets stay positive and see what happens.. we will be posting frequently on this page hence onward!
