WATCH THE VIDEO OF THIS TRIP
Our local knowledge is key to picking the right stretch along these famed waters for the perfect conditions on any given day.
When the snowpack recedes in the heat of summer we venture up into the higher mountain streams and secluded alpine lakes.
If you are lucky enough to be a fanatical angler or just love to revel in the grandeur of the natural world at its finest, this is the place for you.
Certain alpine adventures are just magical by nature. The perfect combination of spectacular landscape, pine-fresh mountain air, that deliciously simple meal alongside your favourite people, long remembered as a true slice of the sweet life. Trout fishing in the Italian Alps and Dolomites is just that sort of experience. It is a very special place for anglers and any lover of breathtaking outdoor pleasures where each day is better than the dream.
We base our fishing adventures in the Trentino region, known for stunning vertical walls, sheer cliffs and lots of deep long valleys. The snowy peaks that make this a winter sport wonderland also ensure plenty of fresh water in these valleys, so the trout are particularly happy and plentiful. The season for these native Brown, Brook and wild Marble trout runs April through October. We stay low in the valleys for the spring and fall months, chasing trophy fish.
Crystal clear alpine water flows through breathtaking scenery, laced with hiking paths, softened by peaceful meadows, dotted with mountain huts, cafes and restaurants. The Alpine Lakes of the Alps and Dolomites are truly one of the premier outdoor locations of Europe, a special place to savour the wonders of the natural world. For the avid angler these pristine lakes provide wonderful Rainbow, Brown, and Brook trout fishing even when sudden summer rains overwhelm the alpine streams.
Warm and large private en-suite rooms with our family-run hotel partner in a lovely alpine village straddling by the river in the heart of Trentino. This classic Italian hotel has a popular local restauraunt with succulent traditional food and a little bar for a nice aperitivo and a grappa or an amaro after dinner. Breakfast and a packed lunch are included each day plus a three-course dinner menu in the casual restaurant every evening.
The Trentino area offers a rare combination of celebrated Italian history, culture, and outdoor adventure. Get medieval in castle ruins, check out famous art museums, shop festive outdoor markets, or get a taste of Italian life on a wine and food tour. Unwind at a thermal bath spa, enjoy a lakeside e-bike ride, take an exhilarating 4x4 tour of the mountain peaks, visit the ‘Romeo and Juliet’ city of Verona with its famous Arena for operas, or just enjoy a lovely walk around Lake Garda less than half an hour drive from our hotel partner. So many ways to play in the Alps and Dolomites!
