FLY FISHING RIVERS IN SERBIA

 

            The vast majority of rivers in Serbia are inhabited with warm water species like carp, asp, chub, pike, zander, catfish and various species of smaller cyprinids. They may be fished with fly fishing tackle, but here we will describe major rivers where fly fishing for trout can be practiced. Brown trout is dominant Salmonid species, while rainbow trout, grayling and huchen live in some rivers only.  

The drainage basins in Serbia. Described rivers are represented with numbers on the map.
