    Endless fishing oases

    Slovenia has a network of watercourses and water bodies, so you can find your own fishing corner at every step. Classic fishermen particularly enjoy fishing in Slovenia’s many lakes, while fly fishing is also popular in rivers in addition to classic fishing.


    If you’re travelling through Prekmurje or Prlekija in northeastern Slovenia, make sure to dip your hook in the meander cut-offs of the River Mura, and Lake Sobota is popular, too.


    In Štajerska, time can stand still if you visit the River Drava, the streams of the Pohorje Hills, or Lake Ptuj. In the Šalek Valley, you can enjoy fishing in Lake Škale and Lake Velenje. The rivers Krka and Kolpa invite you to visit Dolenjska, and the intermittent Lake Cerknica awaits you in the Notranjska region. In the vicinity of Ljubljana, fishing on the picturesque River Ljubljanica will take your breath away, and you can also go fishing in Lake Šmartno and Lake Gradišče. Lake Bloke is also quite interesting.  You’ll also get a good catch if you go fishing in Slovenia’s longest river, the River Sava. In western Slovenia, fishermen are the most excited about the River Soča as well as many other smaller rivers and streams. In Gorenjska, find the unique Lake Bohinj and Lake Bled.


    Fingers crossed for a good catch!
