Soca

Soča

Soča

The Soča runs for 65.2 kilometers from its source in Trenta to the its confluence with the stream Vogršček under the Doblar hydroelectric power plant’s dam.

The first 10 km, to the Vrsnik stream, are breeding waters for the marble trout and typical trout waters, with numerous rapids and hidden pools. The primary fish found here are: marble trout, marble trout crossbreeds, brown trout, rainbow trout, river bull-head and from the confluence with the Lepena stream, grayling as well.

Soča

Soča

From Čezsoča to the confluence with the Vogršček, the Soča belongs to the fishing zone. Here the water varies, from the gentle current in the Bovec basin it enters a stretch of deep gorges and rapids below Srpenica. As it reaches Kobarid the flow becomes gentler again and winds its way slowly towards Tolmin.

Below Kobarid several more species become common: chub, barbel, blageon, minnow, barbus m. caninus and a few tench. The Italian crayfish is common throughout this whole section as well.

Soča

Soča at Kobarid

After joining with the Tolminka, the Soča enters the Doblar dam accumulation lake. The lake stretches some 7 km to the dam in Podselo. In its depths live the largest marble trout as well as numerous other fish.

From the dam to the Vogršček stream, where it leaves our sector, the Soča covers some 1.3 impoverished kilometers, as much of its water is run down pipes to the power plant, leaving a mostly empty river bed.

 
Nadiža

Nadiža

Učja

The Učja enters from Italy and covers 6.1 km before it enters the Soča. It is a swift alpine river, but very inaccessible. Access is somewhat easier only at the country border and near its confluence, below Žaga. Its waters contain trout, river bull-head and grayling near the confluence.
 
Nadiža

Nadiža

Nadiža

The Nadiža makes a 11.9 km loop through Slovenia from its sources in Italy, before returning there. Till below Sedlo it is hidden in a narrow valley full of rapids and deep pools. Beyond, however, it enters a widening gravelly valley and almost disappears in its own deep gravel deposits below Robic.

It’s waters are inhabited by all species of trout, grayling, river bull-head and large numbers of all the species of whitefish found in our waters – chub, Italian barbel, blageon, barbus m. caninus, minnow as well as Italian crayfish.

 
Soča

Under water

Bela

Its source is under the hill Stol, above Breginj, and it covers 4.7 km before entering the Nadiža by Podbela. Its flow was almost completely regulated in the 1930s – split up by numerous barriers. Below them deep pools developed while above them gravelly shallows remained. The first kilometer of the Bela is breeding water, while the rest is open for fishing. It contains all species of trout, numerous river bull-heads and Italian crayfish. In its lower regions one can find grayling and some whitefish as well.
 
Tolminka

Tolminka

Tolminka

Its source is in Polog, an alpine valley below Bogatin. It has carved its course towards the Soča through a narrow valley, sometimes through steep canyons, which are at their most spectacular in the section of the gorges of the Tolminka. When it leaves them it enters the Tolmin basin, where it slows and enters the Soča below Bucenica. Its entire 10.2 km length is open to fishing, save for the section of the gorges.

The Tolminka contains all species of trout and river bull-head. Near Tolmin it is also home to grayling and the occasional chub.

 
Idrijca

Idrijca

Idrijca

The Idrijca enters the Tolmin fishing sector in the village of Stopnik. It is a river with a more pronounced karst character and typical greenish color. Till Trebuša it runs between heavily forested banks, through deep pools, rapids and overflows. At Trebuša its current slows somewhat and gravel deposits appear. The pools are still long and deep, especially those by Slap ob Idrijci, only the overflows and rapids are slower and gentler. By Bača pri Modreju it enters the Doblar dam accumulation lake and enters the Soča near Most na Soči.

Idrijca

Idrijca at Stopnik

Its entire 16.2 km length is open to fishing. All the species of fish found in the Tolmin fishing sector can be found here: all species of trout, grayling, river bull-head, chub, schools of Italian barbel, barbus m. caninus, blageon, minnow and fresh-water crayfish.

 
Trebuščica

Trebuscica

Trebuščica

Its source is under Mrzla Rupa and from there it covers 14 km before entering the Idrijca in Trebuša. The top 5.7 km are a preserve and breeding waters for the marble trout. The remaining 8.3km is open to anglers. The valley through which it runs is narrow, but numerous smaller gravel deposits allow crossings near deep pools and past cascades and rapids. All species of trout inhabit it, and large marble trout often enter it to spawn, as well as grayling, river bull-head and whitefish – especially barbus m. caninus, blageon and chub – in the lower reaches.
 
Bača

Baca

Bača

The Bača river winds for 21.4 km through the narrow valley of Baška Grapa, from below Slatnik and Lajnar towards the Idrijca which it joins in Bača pri Modreju. Along its course it is constantly accompanied and crossed by both the road and railroad. The uppermost three kilometers are breeding waters for the marble trout, with the remainder being fishing waters, which is divided into two sections by the dam in Klavže. The upper part is inhabited by all species of trout, save the rainbow trout, as well as river bull-head, some grayling and whitefish – barbus m. caninus, blageon and minnow – as well as numerous crayfish. In the lower part the rainbow trout is also present and the grayling is more common.
 
Koritnica (baška)

Baska Koritnica

Baška Koritnica

This is a small river that forms from several streams below the village of Rut and runs for 4.7 km before entering the Bača river in the village of Koritnica. Its banks are heavily wooded and its current is very swift. Just above the village of Koritnica it drops steeply into the Bača valley. It is inhabited by the river bull-head and all species of trout, except for the rainbow trout.
 
Kneža

Kneza

Kneža

The Kneža is a typical alpine stream, which collects its waters between Vogel and Rodica and courses its way down a narrow valley towards the Bača river, which it joins between Kneža and Klavže. It runs for 8.3 km. Its entire course is fishing water and inhabited by all species of trout except rainbow trout. The river bull-head is also present.
