There’s a certain zen that must exist for fly fishing to be the stuff of dreams. As we see it, memorable fly fishing requires a remarkable nature setting and fish worth catching. This is what fly fishing in Durmitor National Park is all about. Not many scenic areas could come close to matching it. And the 30-35cm rainbows or a possible brown trout are a worthwhile catch making for an unforgettable day or week.
A UNESCO World Heritage site with 48 peaks, Durmitor National Park offers spectacular vistas in all directions. Since 2019, fly fishing has become possible in three of the glacial lakes–the Riblje, Vrazje, and Zminicko Lakes. Two of these glacial lakes, Riblje Jezero and Zminicko Jezero, are fly fishing only zones.
The fishing season in the Durmitor glacial lakes is possible from May through September. The fly fishing in Durmitor adventure can launch any day of the week except on Mondays. Fishing times are from 1-7pm.
