Gacka River
Fish the Gacka for trout


Croatia is a major fishing destination both for fresh-water angling and deep sea fishing. Fly fishing, spear fishing, game fishing and recreational fishing are all practised with enthusiasm by locals and visitors. Fresh-water fishermen will appreciate the cleanliness and beauty of Croatia's rivers while deep sea fishermen will find high-visibility waters teeming with tuna and other game fish.

Both fresh water and sea fishing are highly regulated in Croatia however; it's important to be acquainted with and follow all the necessary regulations for fresh water and sea fishing and buy the appropriate licenses. In most cases, only a valid ID is required. Violators can be caught and punished!
