Rainbow Trout

The gorgeous and competitive fish inhabiting most Slovenian rivers and lakes.

The Rainbow trout easily adapts to new environments, making it the most widespread non-native species of fish in Slovenia. Sizing roughly 25-90 cm in length, they are less wary of biting the bait, but they put up a good fight with the anglers afterward. Its body is sprinkled with black dots, with a red, green, purple, or even blue-colored flank, giving it a distinctive rainbow look.

Living space

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.

Fishing for the Rainbow Trout

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.
