After the harsh winter the water levels have settled by the end of May and the real fishing season in Slovenia had begun. Great hatch activity brought fish into feeding frenzy and most rivers went in the productive phase.
We hit the Idrijca Valley mid-week with our colleague David from States. Starting with a bluebird sky and drifting dry flies on upper part of Idrijca River. We could have moved volume of fish, as they were on the move in the lower water column, but the preferences were clear, dry fly sport the preferred technique. Few bow's and a brown trout were exchanging hands and freed to thrive in the rive.
Already our last trips to water have been rather good fish-wise and the activity has been ramped-up considerably (see former posts). Last few days guiding our regular guest from Germany, we had seen a good sport and solid performance of our colleague.
Last week of March the cold front crossed Slovenia, bringing in a rainy spell, with an immediate effect on river levels throughout the land. High waters brought us all - fly-fishing addicts - into perpetual state of distress.
