  Fishing in Lake Bohinj
by balhannah

Like fishing, then this may be the place for you!

You may need some wet gear, like the person in my photo though!

Lake Bohinj is home to lake Trout and Char, and is one of the most famous regions for fishing in Slovenia. The best period for fishing is late August and September, but if conditions are good, try April, May and June.

There are some rules that were different to our home country, so I will tell you..............

Fish hooks with barbs are prohibited
Fishing is allowed by using one fly rod and one fly only.
Catch & Release section: Captured fishes must be immediatly unharmed released.
Fishing from bridges is not allowed
Permit's are needed and can be.... One-day, three-day or a week for lake or for the Sava Bohinjka River.
The River fishing grounds, stretch from the lake to the bridge in Soteska.
The season is from 1 May to 31 October for the Sava Bohinjka and from 1 March to 30 September for the lake
You can buy day fishing licenses from the Bohinj tourist information centre.

The biggest Trout ever caught in the Lake, was 1.2 metres!

Good luck!
