Ljubljanica and the ponds in the area offer plenty of possibilities for fishing.

We invite nature and fishing enthusiasts to purchase a fishing licence for the ponds, managed by the Fishing Family Vrhnika which has existed since 1955. They are managing the next districts: the Ljubljanica from its springs in Močilnik and Retovje to the bridge in Podpeč with all the tributaries, a little pond at Ribiški dom Sulec in Sinja Gorica, the ponds Opekarna in Verd, the pond Ribčev ribnik in Bistra and the pond Lokev in Logatec.

You can test your skills and enjoy flyfishing, float fishing, fishing from the boat and spin fishing. Some of the ponds are appropriate for beginners, others can challenge an even more experienced fishermen, who can head for the pond Divjak (one of the ponds near Opekarna), where sunken trees make fishing a lot harder. This very pond is full of surprises. You can also find grayling, brown trout, chub, hunchen, sunbleak, common carp, catfish, pike and many more.
