OPTION 1 - Weekend hunt for Marble Trout

When targeting this Slovene endemic trout species – the Marble trout, one needs to stay at Soca valley and fish one from the most beautiful rivers that the world has to offer. We would organize an accommodation around town Bovec, which offers great access to Soca and its tributaries.
This long weekend would commence with your arrival to the accommodation on Thursday evening, where our guide would meet up with you. During this evening our guide would help with setting up the gear and get that ready for the fishing days ahead. Fishing would be done on Soca and its tributaries on Friday, Idrijca river on Saturday and Soca again on Sunday. The fishing day on Sunday would end at around 4 to 5 pm, giving you enough time for packing up and drive home.

Itinerary

DAY 1
Arrival to Slovenia. Meet and great with our guide at the accommodation where you would check-in. Our guide would host the dinner and make sure that gear gets looked at and prepared for the fishing days ahead.
DAY 2
On this day we would fish one of most beautiful rivers that Europe has to offer – the Soca river. We would dedicate the first day to fishing its most upper section, in order to catch those elusive Marble Trout and bigger rainbow trout that reside there. As marble trout mostly predate on smaller fish in the rivers, we would try and catch them mainly with streamers. However nymphs do work too, with occasional take of dries. Rainbow trout, on the other hand, will try and gulp anything that floats and slightly imitates the dry fly. Rivers we would fish on this day: Soca, Lepena, Koritnica.
DAY 3
On this day we would travel a bit to Soca’s biggest tributary – the river Idrijca. Idrijca is as diverse as it can be, from deep pools with slow flowing deeper water to fast flowing rapids. Idrijca is one fantastic river for any fly fishing experience level, providing anglers with constant action. It is home to Marble trout, rainbows and browns and also grayling. Fly fishing can be done by using dry, nymphs and also streamers.
DAY 4
On this last day, we would fish the Soca river yet again, with its tributaries. Fishing would commence fairly early and we would conclude the day in the afternoon at about 5 pm, providing enough time for packing and trip back home.

Total package price for 1: EUR 1.150
Total package price for 2: EUR 1.700 (850 per person)
Total package price for 3: EUR 2.130 (710 per person)

Further details of the trip would be communicated to you upon booking.

OPTION 2 - Weekend Grayling and Brown Trout haven

In order to target these two beautiful Slovene endemic fresh water species, we will invite you to stay at beautiful Estate Magovac, located on the bank of upper stretch of the river Krka at the village Krka. It is our home and beautiful outskirts of capital city Ljubljana. This long weekend would commence with your arrival to Estate Magovac on Thursday, any time after lunch. Our guide would meet up with you and go through gear preparations for the weekend. Suppers and breakfasts would be provided at Estate Magovac, while we would pack awesome lunches for picnics at the river.
Fishing is done on rivers Savinja, Unica and Krka on the last day, before packing up and leaving on Sunday late afternoon, giving you enough time to pack up and travel home. This weekend fishing is absolutely idea for all dry fly enthusiasts. One can also use nymphs and streamers to secure the catch and release.

Itinerary

DAY 1
Arrival to Slovenia. Meet and great with our guide at the Estate Magovac, where you would check-in. Our guide would host the dinner and make sure that gear gets looked at and prepared for the fishing days ahead.
DAY 2
On this day we would take a quick drive to iconic river Unica. It is a typical chalk river with upper section reserved for dry fly and nymphing, while bottom section can be fished with dry fly only. Unica is home to beautiful grayling and brown trout and they do tend to grow to quite big sizes.
DAY 3
On this day we would travel to upper Savinja river and fish section managed by Ljubno fishing club. Savinja is a typical Alpine river, pretty large in size further down the stream. Savinja is home to brown and rainbow trout, grayling, chub, barble and even Hucho Hucho. Ljubno section offers exciting fishing moments with vast population of fresh water fish and some impressive sizes of those species.
DAY 4
On this last day, we would literally step out of the lodge and into the water. We will fish the Krka river and look for those wild brown trout. It is possible to catch rainbow trout and barble too. Krka is one of the most beautiful chalk rivers flowing through Slovenia. It is well known for its sills of tuff (a type of rock made of volcanic ash) that created distinctive series of deeper pools and waterfalls. Fishing this river is always a great experience and it never disappoints.

OPTION 3 - Week long fly fishing exploring of Slovenia

During this week or 6 days fishing, we would explore 5 amazing rivers Slovenia has to offer. We would aim at catching Marble trout, grayling, brown and rainbow trout, with chances of catching some other species, like barbell too. For easier access to the rivers and more time to spend on the water, we would stay at two different locations. To start the trip, we will invite you to stay at beautiful Estate Magovac, located on the bank of upper stretch of the river Krka at the village Krka. It is our home and beautiful outskirts of capital city Ljubljana. We will stay there for 4 nights and then move to Bovec area, which is located in the heart of mountain area in the valley of beautiful Soca river. Our guide would meet up with you upon your arrival and go through gear preparations for the week and get you excited for amazing fishing days ahead. Suppers and breakfasts would be provided at the lodge, while we would pack awesome lunches for picnics at the rivers.

Fishing is done on rivers Krka, Savinja, Unica, Sava Bohinjka and 2 days at Soca. The last fishing day would be concluded at about 4-5 pm in order to give you enough time to tuck the fishing gear away and drive home.
