The souther part of Latium offers good chances to flyanglers addicts. Waters which can be easily reached thanks to the motorway granting good and fast connection.
Not far from Rome, it crosses a very narrow valley where casting is really very difficult in some cases while the lower part is much easier. It contains trout and chubs (in the lowest stretches).
It’s a real chalk-stream, originating from a very small lake. It contains a so-called “green trout”(Trutta macrostigma – a species living only here and other rivers in Central Italy). Waders are useless, given its depth which obliges fishing from the bank a difficult task due to the presence of canes and weeds for the most part of the year.
Smaller streams in Eastern Latium
The province of Rieti is filled with small-medium rivers and lakes, most of them very interesting for trout fishing and which also offers various casting difficulties. If you are in search of wild spots and enchanting beautiful landscape to be visited during a fishing trip, this is the right one-day destination.
Lake Bracciano is only a few kilometers from Viterbo and is best fished from a boat or belly-boat. Fishing from the shore (waders) is also possible. This lake has only three towns on its banks: Anguillara, Trevignano and Bracciano which offer good opportunities for a day of tourism . Lake Bracciano has pike, black bass, cyprinids all accepting streamers, poppers, wets and dries.
The above are but a few of the opportunities offered by our province. It should be noted, however, that from Viterbo (not far from Rome) it is possible to enjoy many more waters. For further details, please visit www.flyfishingtuscia.com
