Enjoy fishing!

Val di Sole offers anglers stunning views as they enjoy bountiful waters that are well suited to all trout fishing requirements and techniques. Nestling in the Brenta Dolomites, the Ortles Cevedale mountain range and Stelvio National Park are lo less than 130 km of torrents, 13 alpine lakes, 3 no-kill fly fishing zones, 2 trophy fishing areas for lures, 2 booking-only no-kill fly fishing reserves (max 2 anglers per day), 1 tourist reserve with mature trout stocking and a small sport fishing lake. Marble and brown trout, repopulated by the ASPS hatchery in Cavizzana, and Arctic char will put your fishing skills to the test.

Fishing for rainbow trout, brown trout, marble trout and prized chars in the Noce, Vermigliana, Meledrio and Rabbies torrents is an experience like no other. The relaxing sport of fishing brings enormous satisfaction whether practiced in natural lakes or man-made ones such as the Pian Palù reservoir, Lake Fazzòn (Lago dei Caprioli) and Magic Lake (Commezzadura). Each stretch of water is, depending on altitude and climate, home to a rich variety of life, from microorganisms to beautiful, tasty fish. The abundance of fish in the River Noce and its numerous tributaries should not be overlooked either. These waters are home to various trout species: brown, the splendid marble, the sparkling rainbow, the sought-after Arctic char and the common minnow.

During summer, be sure not to miss the guided tour of the Cavizzana Hatchery, managed by the Associazione Sportiva Pescatori Solandri, which breeds the young marble and brown trout that are later released into the waters of the valley. The visit provides an overview of the local fish populations and includes a detailed explanation of how the hatchery operates and the pivotal role played by fishermen in safeguarding the local environment.
