About Fresh Water Fish in Slovenia

Slovenia’s giant network of rivers and lakes is home to over 90 species of freshwater fish. Let’s take a look at the one that are attracting a growing number of recreational fishing enthusiasts from all over the world.

The king among the indigenous species of Slovenian waters is undeniably the Marble or Soča Trout, also known as the Adriatic Trout. Swimming alongside this champ in the pure Adriatic watershed are also the Brown and Rainbow Trout as well as the Hybrid Trout (Marble x Brown). A star of fly fishing, the Grayling, reigns in the calmer sections of our rivers and is a very popular catch. Speaking of popular, Slovenian freshwaters are home to “hucho”, the great and elusive Huchen, a.k.a. the Danube Slamon, which brings the virtues of patience and wisdom to the fishing game. Besides the pointy Pike, the bedrock swimmer Barbel and the demon of the deep, the Catfish, Slovenia’s slow-flowing or still waters hide the most sought-after fish of all – the Carp. Even the famous glacial wonder of Lake Bled prides itself with this amazing creature. Overall, around 20 freshwater species are up for grabs, which also include the Wels, Tench, Bream, Chub, and more.
