Upper Soca River was generous to us! The story started with a query of guest from States, willing to explore famous Slovenian River Soca - in a quest for elusive marble trout. We approached him with the information to not lose the marbles before the trip and prepare for unexpected.
The weather forecast in third week of July was great and water levels just a tad below the average, which found us in a position to be able to spot the fish, which made our guide’s role a lot easier. The fish activity was rather low in the morning, rising just before noon. We opted for nymph fishing to start with and got a bite here and there, but it took some time till we hooked a first marmorata. Many bows later we got the third one and we decided to opt for a dry fly sport instead. It would be a pity to not test world famous Fratnik’s fly, so called F-fly on Soca trout. After spotting a decent marble specimen in the transition between faster and slower water, we gave it a try. Several presentations later, when fly landed just right with a parachute cast, the trout took willingly. Marble trout are not renowned for their fighting abilities, but this one was running wildly. All in all, a perfect day in perfect company, surrounded with amazing Julian Alps! Willing to explore Soca, we will be happy to assist you.
