Gacka brown trout

It is well known that brown trout in river Gacka grow up to five times faster than in other rivers. Quantity of brown trout increases each year and this year in average you can catch more brown than rainbow trout. Credit for the preservation of native Gacka river brown trout goes to "Croatian Centre for Indigenous Species of Fish and Crawfish in Karstic Waters - Otocac" and Gacka d.o.o.. This year more than 2000 fish, mostly native brown trout average size of 45 cm, were introduced in Catch & Release area which has been extended to the fifth bridge. Larger, old, nature brown trout you can catch specially in this downstream area which is not much visited by anglers like area in Licko Lesce around bridge and hotel. In our last fishing trip my friend Sasa and I had dozen of trout, mostly brown some of you can see on this photos, but the most beautiful brown trout larger than 60 cm caught by Sasa I didn't have opportunity to photograph. Sasa showed me a photo of fish taken by his mobile phone. This was pure, old and native brown trout, really beautiful and trophy fish what you can not see every day. That day we were fishing mainly near the bottom of the river with black streamers and heavy nymphs, and that conditions are created for using of sinking fly lines or sinking poly-leaders.
