VERMIGLIO This aquatic environment, sometimes subject to devastating floods, is characterised by fast-flowing streams. Given its abundant flow, the Vermigliana sometimes has artificial riverbed management features with long embankments while the remaining sections have a natural riverbed. The fish population is almost entirely brown trout, both natural-growth and from ready-to-fish stock input; the brook trout is sometimes present and will find suitable spawning grounds in tributaries. The fishing area starts at the confluence with the Torrente Noce in Ossana (950 m a.s.l.) and ends, 10 km further upstream, above the Campo Gara in Velon. The best lure fishing months are generally March, April, May, June and September, while natural baits give the best results in the warmer months even though glacier meltwaters can cloud the stream. The stream is easily accessible from various points.
