Savinja River

The Savinja River, sourced from the heights of the Slovenian Alps in Logar Valley, is a premier destination for fly fishing enthusiasts. Its clear, cold waters are a natural habitat for a diverse range of fish, making it an ideal spot for anglers of all levels.

When you come to the Savinja for fly fishing, you’ll be greeted by the swift currents that are home to the Brown Trout and Grayling in the upper parts, and as you follow the river downstream, Rainbow Trout and the impressive Huchen start to appear.

The waters also host Barbel and Chub, especially around the small town of Ljubno ob Savinji, where the fishing spots are abundant and the fish are sizable.

Fly Fishing on Savinja River

Your fly fishing adventure on the Savinja begins at the first light of day. Our local guides, with their extensive knowledge and experience, will lead you to the best fishing spots where Rainbow Trout are often the prized catch.

However, the river’s variety ensures that there’s always a good mix of species to aim for. We understand that fly fishing is an activity that requires energy and concentration, so we take enough time for snacks and meals to keep you going throughout the day.

Whether you prefer a full-day trip to fully immerse yourself in the Savinja fly fishing experience or a half-day trip due to time constraints, we’re here to accommodate your needs.

Our guides are not just skilled in fly fishing; they’re locals who have grown up around the Savinja River and know its secrets like the back of their hand. They’re eager to share their knowledge and take you to the best spots along the river that only locals are privy to.

We’re also deeply committed to the health and sustainability of the Savinja River. By engaging in responsible fishing practices, we help to maintain the river’s ecosystem for future generations of fly fishing enthusiasts.

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)

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.
