Fly fishing

The Western Carpathians hide pristine streams that have carved their way through massive limestone formations and formed the spectacular karst landscape for which our destination – the Apuseni Natural Park – is known. Gorges, caves and a deep lake complete this special destination for fly fishing and nature lovers.

The river we fish is home to some of the finest grayling and trout fishing in the Romanian Carpathians. Through its clearness and its cognac colour, the river offers the landscape a specific warmth and welcoming feeling. You’ll be impressed by the diverse structure along its course; you’ll fish for trout in its shallow, narrow rapids and its calm and clear pools in the upper parts, then wade a bit further downstream to chase your catch in grayling paradise. After this, prepare for a small, beautiful river delta at the point where the river flows into the lake. Here, next to the beautiful wild brownies and the painted-like coloured graylings, you can also land greedy chub or try your luck with the elusive lake trout.

No matter your level of experience, the river is perfectly suited for beginners and advanced fly fishermen alike. So prepare your 3 to 5wt. 9ft rods and get in touch for the best fly patterns for your trip. You can order them in advance. See further details by clicking the button below.
