Lake Bled is of tectonic glacial origin. The lake’s deepest point is 30 m and its average annual temperature is 12 °C, reaching up to 25 ° C in July. The Carp population has been swimming in Lake Bled for ages, but in recent years the fish have been growing faster than ever. Throughout the year, a good number of fish can be found in excess of 30 kg. In Addition, Lake Bled has one of the biggest populations of Carp over 20 kg.

Fishing starts one hour before sunrise and lasts until 11 pm. Since the best places are quickly taken, it’s the guide’s job to reserve a fishing spot and hold it until your arrival. The guide also shows you the right techniques, prepares everything you need for fishing, and helps you tidy up after. In case you need additional tips, your guide is always available nearby. Since fish are best caught in the morning and in the evening, it’s crucial that you persist until the very end, as fish have a tendency to bite minutes before 11 pm.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
The number of carp fishing licenses on Lake Bled is limited to 10 per day. That’s why it is very important to make a reservation for your trip as early as possible (in January or February), so we can get a license for you right after booking.

Martin

I’ve been a carp fisherman for ages, but in recent years, this sport has become a great part of my life. I spend over 100 day per year fishing, spending all my free time by the water, mainly in Slovenia and neighbouring Croatia. As a member of the Bled fishing family, Lake Bled is my prime fishing location. It’s also where I set my record of catching a 27.8 kg fish.
My other favourite fishing spots are Šmartinsko Lake, Lake Slivnica and the Ljubljanica River. I’m looking forward to sharing my knowledge with you and help you catch your next trophy-size fish.

Mitja

I started fishing as a child. Later, I was drawn to carp fishing and decided to specialise in this technique. Through the years, I gained a lot of precious experience and knowhow. I explored fishing on numerous waters around Slovenia, beat my records and fell deeply in love with this type of fishing. My current record rests at 32.5 kg, but of course my aim is to do even better. When I received an offer to create the Fishing Guides Slovenia webpage and thus help introduce Slovenian fishing to the world, I jumped at the opportunity and never looked back. I’m extremely proud of our Fishing Guides Slovenia brand which strives to bring the wonderful sport of fishing to the people.
