Flowing through the breath-taking Trenta Valley in the Julian Alps, the Soča is the most iconic river in Slovenia. Its upper parts are full of cascades, rapids and pools that can be accessed easily from the road. This stunning alpine river then weaves its way through a canyon, where fishing takes on a very back-to-nature turn. The fish populous is plentiful throughout the Soča. It includes the Marble TroutBrown Trout, Rainbow Trout and Grayling, which differs from other Grayling species in Slovenia. Chub and Barbel can also be found in its tributaries Lepenjica, Koritnica and Nadiža. The Soča’s gravel bottoms and pools make it suitable for fly-fishing throughout most of the year.

Your fishing adventure begins in the morning. Together with our local guide, you’ll take a ride to the Soča Lake in your belly boat. Fishing the famous Marble Trout and all other Trout species that reside in the Soča. You’ll take regular breaks by anchoring along the embankment, where you’ll dry up and recharge your batteries to continue your hunt for the Soča-dwelling beasts. The fishing trip lasts all day.

Fish

The Marble Trout is the trout family’s biggest and most iconic representative. It can grow up to 130 cm in length, 22 kg in weight, and has a distinct olive-green marble pattern which makes it stand out from other members of its family.

The Grayling is one of Europe’s most popular fly-fishing species, which has seen quite a steep decline in population around the continent. But do not threat, this fish is well-preserved in Slovenia’s waters. Although an increasing number of 50 cm Grayling have been reported in recent years, the minimum size catch measures 45 cm. Characterised by their colourful dorsal fin, Grayling prefer to swim in calmer sections of rivers and fishing with the use of an artificial fly makes it a perfect catch throughout the mid-May to end of October season.

Season: Ordinary Grayling: April 1st – November 30th (Soča river April 1st – November 30th)
Adriatic Grayling: May 16th – November 30th
Slovenian record: 63 cm

As Slovenia’s most widespread Trout species, the Brown Trout can be caught at sizes ranging from 25 (min. size) to 50 cm. It’s mainly found in upper and middle reaches of rivers and streams, Karst waters being home to the largest. This wonderful fish’s colour patterns can vary between dark grey, copper-red, olive green, or yellow-brown, sprinkled with red, white and black spots. The Brown Trout is a beauty that can be found in most popular fishing spots around Slovenia. The fishing season runs from March to November.

Season: March 1st – September 30th

Sharing many of Slovenia’s waters with the Brown Trout is the gorgeous Rainbow Trout. It’s an incredibly adaptable fish and can be found in both manmade and natural habitats – flowing or standing. Thanks to its Rainbow-coloured flank and tiny black dots, this Trout is easily distinguishable from other fish. It can reach a size of 90 cm and weigh up to 10 kg, with the average fishing size between 26 (min. size) and 50 cm. The Rainbow Trout is much braver and more aggressive than its Marble and brown counterparts, which makes its powerful flight tough but very enjoyable. You can catch this creature from the end of March until the end of October.

Season: March 1st – November 30th (Soča river April 1st – November 30th)

Žiga

I graduated in forestry engineering, but fishing has been a passion of mine since I was 3 years old when my dad first took me fishing. I enjoy all types of fishing techniques, but for the past 20 years I have focused mainly on fly fishing and spin fishing. Nymphing is still my favourite. I’ve gained my experience while fishing on practically every Slovenian river and lake. I’m fluent in English and German.

I started fishing at the age of 6. I spent most of my young age fishing on lakes, but when I discovered fly fishing, it instantly became my biggest passion. I’ve been fly fishing for more than 20 years now and during that time I have fished most of Slovenia’s rivers. I am a member of many fishing clubs and a competitor in the National Championship for 3 years now. My favourite rivers for fly fishing are Soča, Idrijca, Savinja and Tolminka. I am also a big enthusiast of fly tying.
