Discover the charm of the Julian Alps while chasing the elusive Marble Trout
Join LFFE Head Guide Charlie Parr on this trip of a lifetime to chase one of the rarest species of trout in one of the most beautiful and unspoiled countries in Europe. We will arrive in the capital, Ljubljana, where we will recover from our travel to Europe by taking in the sights of the city, and enjoying the local food and wine. On our second full day in the country we will warm up by going after rainbow trout, brown trout, and maybe the occasional grayling. We will then make our way to the Julian Alps to chase marble trout, but first we will take a quick detour to loosen up and sample some of Slovenia’s incredible wines by visiting the Goriška Brda wine region. Once situated in the Soča Valley at a local farm, we will explore the mesmerizing Soča River, its stunning tributaries, and the majestic Julian Alps in search of the rare and beautiful Marble Trout. The Marble Trout is endemic to the Adriatic Basin, but due to habitat loss, hybridization with Brown Trout, and other factors, the only remaining pure populations of Marble Trout are found in Slovenia. Our expert local guides know all of the best spots to find these amazing fish, no matter the conditions. Plus, we will be fishing at the very beginning of the season in Slovenia, so the fish will be the least pressured as possible, giving you the best chance to land one of these special trout!
