Interesting fishing in glorious surroundings
The Trentino region, in the heart of the Italian Alps, offers a stunning blend of Alpine woodland, valleys, rivers and lakes. From the towering peaks in the Dolomites to the almost 300 lakes, including the likes of Lake Garda, it’s a superb spot for fishermen and non-fishers alike. Anglers will find a glorious mix of rivers and lakes to test their skills.
Plenty of choice
The Trentino region boasts more than 300 km of streams and rivers along with nearly 300 lakes and provides a plethora of fly fishing opportunities. Brown trout are the most widespread species and are found in the high mountain streams and all the way down to the larger rivers exiting the Alps. As the rivers grow, so does the number of species, with the cool swift flows making a perfect home for spectacularly marked marble trout and challenging grayling. Fly fishers may also encounter rainbow trout and Arctic char (in several high-altitude lakes).
The variety of fishing on offer means that there is something for just about everyone, whether you want to exclusively fish dry flies, enjoy modern nymphing techniques, or like to target big fish on streamers. The mountain streams are rapid and boulder strewn making for challenging wading in parts. Once the rivers open out, pools often provide nice easily waded gravel beds.
The guide team are a hugely knowledgeable and can tailor the day to suit each angler and the conditions at hand. They speak good English and are always happy to advise on equipment and flies as well as the local fauna and flora.
Wonderful variety of accommodation and activities

One of Italy’s prettiest regions
Tucked into Italy’s northeast corner, Trentino stretches from the Dolomites to Lake Garda. Characterised by charming Alpine villages, vineyards, and castles – and off the beaten path of mass tourism – it has something of a fairy-tale feel. Within easy reach of Verona and Venice there is plenty of opportunity to combine fishing with art and culture.
