Given away by its characteristic reddish fins and whiskers, the Barbel is common in the rock-bottom, slow-flowing parts of the Soča River near the towns of Idrija and Kobarid as well as the lake at Most na Soči. Barbel’s minimum catch size is 30 cm, but it can reach the size of 80 cm and a weight of over 5 kg. The Barbel is a very competitive fish, making it perfect for an exciting sport fishing excursion. The season for catching Barbel runs from April through October.
