Fly fishing Gacka River

Our connections with waters bring us to this well-known fly-fishing river Gacka. Curving through the valley, surrounded by mountains, passing through the villages, bring lots of fresh water and food for Brown trout. Calm river, very clean and clear hiding capital specimens up to 8kg. Gacka is extremely rich in both flora and fauna keeping 25 plant species Algae, Bryophytes, and woody plants as well as rainbow trout. Brown trout here grows 5-7 times faster than in any other trout water in the world. The angling season on the Gacka River opens on 1st March and closes on 31st October. The mainstream of the Gacka River is divided into A, B, and C angling zones. Your guide will take you to the best one.

The A-Zone only fly angling is allowed. This zone is a catch-and-release area, particularly in the area upstream from the confluence. One part of the Gacka River is a natural reserve where angling is prohibited.  The B Zone encompasses the Gacka stream. Fly angling and any type of artificial flies are allowed. In Zone C artificial lures are allowed. Weights and floats are not allowed with artificial flies.
