The Sava Bohinjka River is a lovely Alpine river that flows out of Lake Bohinj, running through a narrow valley at times squeezed into a gorge. This river is home primarily to salmonids such as the brook trout, grayling, rainbow trout, Danube salmon (or huchen) and whiting.
The only permitted method of angling is fly fishing. Fishermen can choose their method: catch and keep or catch and release. The first part of the fishing area stretches from the outflow of the Sava Bohinjka River from Lake Bohinj to the road bridge below Bohinjska Bistrica, which is administered by the Bohinj Fishing Society, and the second part, administered by the Slovenian Fishing Institute, runs from this bridge to the dam at Soteska.
The fishing season runs from 1 April to 14 November.
|Fish species||Legal size||Fishing season|
|Rainbow trout||>24 cm||1 March – 14 November|
|Brown trout||>28 cm||1 April – 30 September|
|Grayling||>40 cm||1 June – 14 November|
The only permitted way of fishing is fly-fishing by using all types of strings, however, without any extras that would change their initial features. Fishermen can only tie one fly, nymph, appetizer strimmer, tied to a single hook.
