Located in northwest Slovenia, the Sava Bohinjka starts its journey at the outflow from Lake Bohinj. The river drops significantly on its 32 kilometer journey to the Sava River, so it has plenty oxygen to sustain its large population of cold-water fish. As it descends to the Sava, the river bed transitions from fast and deep pools to rapids, and finally to being relatively wide and smooth – offering a variety of waters that will keep both beginner and expert fly fishermen entertained.
The Sava Bohinjka is renowned as the river on which flyfishing lasts for the entire season and which has good success even with periodic higher water flow rates. The fishing season for trout for this river begins in April and ends in November. Flyfishing for the Danube Salmon – special for this river - starts in December and lasts till the middle of February.
Allowed Methods of Fishing
Fly fishing only, with one fly with a barbless hook (traditional hooks must have a flattened barb). No strike indicators or any additions to tippets or leaders are allowed.
