A special fishing licence is required to catch Huchen on the Sava Bohinjka river, where fishing is possible from the beginning of December and to the mid of February. There are three fishing grounds, where fishing for Huchen is allowed.

Bohinj Lake is suitable for various types of fishing; whereas, Sava Bohinjka and Mostnica rivers are only suitable for certain types of fly fishing. Mostnica is one of the exclusive fishing spots, since it can accommodate only five fishermen per day.
