SLOVENIAN FLY FISHING NEWS,
RAIN RAIN GO AWAY...,
7.6.2017 If the Radovna was still clear this morning, by the ends of the day color is already milky... Sava Bohinjka did not dramatically rise the level but is dark and coloured.. Thursday June 8th will not be possible to fly fish. Friday June 9th on the middle or upper parts only. We will be posting daily latest levels. stay tuned.
COMFORTABLY FLY FISHING THE DAYS TO FOLLOW,
3.6.2017 June kicked in - Grayling season officially open and the rivers showing their best conditions of the season! Lots of fly fishing action on the Sava Bohinjka river! Smaller Radovna represents a good hide-out on the most busy days, while the Big Sava slowly kicks in too! During the day dry fly fishing can be demanding, while the proper hatch will happen no earlier than 20:30 pm! A bit of everything on the menu one could say.. luckily occasional local showers boost dry fly action also during the day. Welcome to try ;-)
INTO SUMMER FLY FISHING,
30.5.2017 Like the spring would not even happen! From cold and rainy April straight into sunny, summer June! Levels of the rivers are perfect, Sava Bohinjka, Soca, Radovna, big Sava are optimal, Sava Dolinka is getting off snow melt and will also be ok in the next week or 10 days time. Hatch comes late as you can see on the attached video I made in the Bled fishing club waters of the Sava Bohinjka a couple of days ago.. Weather can surprise with a storm or two but in general is fine. SEE YOU SOON!
SUMMER OR SPRING FLY FISHING?,
24.5.2017 While the snow melt is getting weeker and weeker every day, the HATCHES are getting stronger and stronger! May fly and Stone fly are increasing in hatches daily.. for the moment hatch happens later in the evening, like from 20:00 onwards or after EVERY rain shower that can happen every day.. Weather forecast is relaxed, no big rain drama on the horizon! Weekend of May 27,28 can be already declared SAFE to come!
CLEAR LEVELS BUT CHALLENGING,
18.5.2017 Sunshine blazing down which feels good after that looong rainy period.. but with the sun - so came the snow melt... rivers are CLEAR, snow melt does not colour the water.. but the current is strong and fishing on behalf of that quite challenging. Experienced fly fisherman will have no problems catching the fish while beginners might be struggling a bit.. some parts of the Sava Bohinjka are a bit more easy to fish than the others.. we try to send each one who visits us to the most appropriate sections of the river - regarding the skills he has.. welcome to visit ;-)
FINALLY SOME GOOD FLY FISHING NEWS,
15.5.2017 As from today, rain should stop and better times to follow! Fishable levels are expected from Wednesday 17th onwards... temperatures will jump up to 20 degrees - dry fly action to be expected!
