Rainbow Trout is one of the most widespread non-native fishing species in Slovenia. They are very adaptable to their environment, which spans across most fishing waters in Slovenia, including lakes.
It is one of the most interesting species to fish, as it is not as scared as the other two trouts to bite the bait. And when it does, it also puts up a good fight and struggles until it is caught. The fishing season on the Soča River runs from April 1st to November 30th.
