Public Question Asked by Dan about Ljubljana
Fishing near Ljubljana
Hi, I'm looking into availability and cost of fishing trips in or near Ljubljana. Myself and my fiance arrive in Ljubljana 23rd September and leave on 26th September. We'll be staying in central Ljubljana. Any information about fly fishing or sea fishing would be great.

The best thing about Slovenia is it's size; you can reach from one end to another in no time (ok, a couple of hours, 5,6 depending on traffic state). So looking for fishing or sea fishing near Ljubljana becomes relatively easy. If you're a more sporty kind of fisherman I suggest Sava Bohinjka,Radovna or Lake Bled. Sport fishing is popular around there as a result of river trout abundance. Now, there is a far more vast palette of fish to be found in Lake Bled, as each part of the lake has it's own. The thing with Lake Bled is, well, it really hits the spot. Fishing in such an environment is very calming,relaxing, fun, as the surrounding area offers an incredible view. Now, I checked a couple of prices; there is also a type of salmon, living in these waters, and the price (of course, accompanied by a registered member of the fish-club :) is 40 €. The problem is that salmon is available from november 15th to February 14th. In this specific case of sport fishing on Lake Bled (while taking in account your stay here) I would strongly recommend a daily card, which comes around 55€. (oh, I almost forgot, fly fishing is also an option in these waters). Carp is also a very popular kind of fish in Bled. The cost comes around 50 €; here on the page says you are allowed to use 2 sets, and you can catch about 7 kilos of crap. I'll also post you the fishing-family's homepage, in case of any other information (reservation, etc.) I am extremely sorry, if I was a bit vague about the whole fish thing, but I'm not strong on the subject, so I had to do a bit of research.
Of all the options you'll find in the homepage, I think this is the best one. Bled is a perfect mixture of neat surrounding and calming water, with a lively community of fishers. According to your need and bounds, this is a perfect fit (at least in my opinion), It is relatively near Ljubljana, it has amazing scenery, and fishing is a bit more developed than in other parts of the country.
If you have any other question, please, do not hesitate to ask me
p.s. I hope the above information was helpful.

There are some river options in the country. Even though it's only in slovenian I'd still forward you to this site, where most of them are listed --> http://www.ribicija.info/index.php?option=com_content&task=blogcategory&id=3&Itemid=7
You can use Google Translator to understand it a bit.

My suggestion is to see this link and you'll receive a lot of info about the fly-fishing which you're keen about.
Since you will be based in Ljubljana and don't want to drive all over, the river Sava would be the best option.
Have a wonderfoul staying while in Slovenia. Cheers!
