Description of Belly boat Catfishing on Vipava river

The Vipava is a coastal river known for its giant Catfish. Rather small in size, the river is inhabited by lovely species measuring over 2 meters in length and reaching enviable weights. The Catfish were deliberately settled in the Vipava River to help reduce its excessive fish population. As a top predator, it later multiplied and now reigns as king in the depths of the Vipava.

The trip starts by taking a Belly boat ride down the Vipava in the company of our expert guide and fish in the tranquillity of nature. Breaks are taken for refreshments and you can also float ashore to try to catch a river monster from there.

When you hook a 173 cm catfish only then you realize just how useless the flippers are against such a beast.
Robert Rees
A friend who recomended the Belly boat trip caught a 201 cm giant when fishing on Vipava river. I wasn't that lucky, but nevertheless managed to catch 3 catfish of up to 150 cm in size.
Damien Webb
When reeling in a big catfish while bouncing about in my Belly boat, my heart was racing so hard that I thought I was going to have a heart attack. But the effort sure paid off once the fish was finally landed!
