The Tolmin Angling Club has decided to postpone all member-gathering activities until further notice due to the measures still in place to curb the spread of coronavirus. We will organize
Tolmin Angling Club is a society established with the purpose of conservation and breeding of indigenous and other fish, management of recreational fishing, as well as protection of waters and aquatic systems.
The club manages a part of the Tolmin fishing district on the territory of municipalities Bovec, Kobarid and Tolmin, which includes the Soča and all its tributaries from Bovec (bridge over the Soča on the Bovec – Čezsoča road) to Podselo, the Nadiža on the territory of the Republic of Slovenia and its tributaries, as well as the Idrijca and its tributaries from Stopnik to the point where it flows into the Soča. The Tolmin fishing district is divided into three fishing sections.
The only kind of fishing allowed here is flyfishing. The particularity of our fishing district is the marble trout. Among the record-holding fish caught in the Soča near Tolmin is the marble trout from 2009, measuring 120 cm in length and weighing 22.5 kg. The marble trout is known to reach great sizes and weights.
In order to perform our activities effectively, we own three fish farming facilities where we breed the marble trout – a hatchery at Modrej and two fish farms on the Tolminka near Tolmin. At the newest fish farm Faronika, fish are bred to be released into rivers or to be further processed and sold.
