Description of Fly fishing on Sava river

After the Sava Bohinjka and Sava Dolinka confluence, the river gets the name Sava. Its gravel beds, deep pools and sharp passages are perfect if you’re looking for a wilder fishing experience. It flows through the town of Kranj, where the largest Huchen was caught. In and around Lake Trboje many other species can be fished, like the Chub, Barbel, Perch, Zander, and Carp. Brown trout, Rainbow trout and Grayling are also very common in this river.

Your fishing adventure starts in the morning when you and your guide will travel to the best fishing locations on the Sava River. Fishing will take place throughout the day, with breaks for snacks and refreshments. At the end of a successful day, the fisherman or fisherwoman with the biggest catch pays a round of drinks to toast to the new Huchen King

The guide knew exactly how to fish, had all the appropriate gear and good lures. A pleasant experience, it was freezing alright, but for a Huchen of 87cm it's worth freezing!

This was my first time fishing for Huchen and I had no expectations whatsoever. So you can imagine my happy face catching not only one but 2 huchos. I'm so grateful to Fishing guides Slovenia for all the help and advises!
