The crystal-clear Idrijca River with its numerous tributaries offers an ideal natural habitat for fish, which is why the Idrija and Cerkno region boasts a long, rich fishing tradition. Fishing in Idrija’s waters offers visitors a genuine experience in un-spoilt natural surroundings, a healthy way of spending their leisure time, an ideal holiday and relaxation.
Fishing is not only an obsession of the Idrija Fishing Association’s members, but is becoming an increasingly more desirable sport attracting numerous domestic and foreign visitors, primarily from
neighboring countries. The Idrija Fishing Association sells around 1500 fishing licences each year to visitors from abroad.
