As her waters exit the Bohinj Lake, they gently weave through the romantic Bohinj valley right untill they reach the deep canyon between Pokljuka and Jelovica mountain plateau. Once past it, they pass the famous Bled Lake and then soon meet Sava Dolinka at the confluence. The entire length of this deep green river can be fished and it produces beautiful Rainbow Trout, next to more and more scarce Grayling and Brown Trout. This is home to big Huchen and it is no rarity to experience this beast charge after the fish you just hooked…
Starting her path at the dreamy Zelenci marsh it is first a tiny stream overgrown with vegetation. After receiving the first bigger tributary, it becomes a fast alpine river with long runs and scarce pools. Once downstream the industrial town of Jesenice and it’s huge dam, it becomes largely effected by hydropeaking, but at some occasions even this part offers good fishing. The part of the valley next to Bled is truly wild and it will be hard to meet another fisherman on that section that is still home to some trophy Grayling.
Sava is the longest Slovenian river and home to collosal Huchen and really big Rainbow Trout and Grayling. Being a big river it can be tricky to fish, but when the day is right and you find active fish, it can sure be something to remember. It can be fished from the town of Radovljica all the way to Kranj and it offers a wide range of terrain that will satisfy even the most delicate fishermen.
