In our area the focus is on fly-fishing, although fishing from a boat and carp fishing are also quite common. Nevertheless, fly-fishing has primary importance. Fly-fishing can be defined as a sport, but to some it represents the meaning of life. The ancient Romans were familiar with fly fishing, but its active development began in the 15th century. From its beginnings to the present day fly fishing has experienced a lot of changes, particularly in equipment that is needed for fly-fishing and approach. Our area has excellent conditions for all types of fishing. In particular we are proud that we can enable and offer fly-fishing in the beautiful waters of Lake Bohinj, the Sava Bohinjka and Sava Dolinka rivers and the pearl among our waters – the Mostnica river.
The glacial Lake Bohinj is the largest Alpine lake in Slovenia, renowned for its pristine blue waters which reflect the surrounding spectacular landscape upon the surface of the water like a surreal mirror. Its maximum depth is around 40 meters, and there are two ways in which you can disturb the depths of the magical mirror: you can either enjoy fishing from the shore, or you can rent a boat and throw yourself at the mercy of the lake goddess. However, if you do not want to feel the wrath of this lake goddess, or should I say the Slovenian authorities, you must not fish from the picturesque bridges and you must not use live bait such as bone, shell worm of any form of fish.
Just like every other excellent fly fishing location on the planet, there are some rules and regulations that must be followed. These rules and regulations have not been created to limit the amount of fun you will have while fly fishing in Slovenia. These rules have been put in place to help preserve the wonderful natural resources for years to come. Most fishing guides for flyfishing in Slovenia will talk about typical fly fishing alpine rivers, typical techniques for fly fishing, typical fly fishing basics, but all it takes is one look at the Radovna River, and you will see that is anything but typical river. Zavod offers you ticket for Radovna and for other fishing areas too. Radovna is just one of them.

Proper challenge for every fly fisherman. More than 20km of wild and unspoiled fly fishing area waits for you. Large Hucho Salmon is also very present in this river.

It is a great fly- fishing district which flows through the “Walley of dreams”. It is so peaceful and picturesque, that you can´t believe it. Fly- fishermen from around the world come fishing here every single year. River is rich with beautiful brown trouts and rainbows, but in its lower part you may be surprised about the size of the graylings which come mainly from the Sava river. Actually the Sava river becomes a river when both, Sava Bohinjka from one side and Sava Dolinka from another side join into the Sava.
