The most interesting Kurzeme rivers:

 * Licensed salmon and sea trout fishing on river Venta from 1st of January till 1st of June.  

 * Catch&release sea trout fishing in other Kurzeme rivers like Irbe or Rīva from 1st of January till 31st of September, an activity where the know-how of local guides is crucial, but the popularity of the action grows with warmer winters.

 * Tips and strategies for finding brown trouts in trout rivers of Kurzeme are very important, as various water conditions and fish migration during a year make it complicated for a beginner.  

The best compliment from our guests about Kurzeme rivers express the old truth that “small is beautiful”, it is said about a variety of landscapes within a rather small area, while even on small streams a specialist still finds a 40-45 cm brown trouts. 

Our strength is the possibility to collect actual information from local fishermen, but it is a good suggestion to plan your trip on time when it is +30 degrees celsius or around +0, at these times there is plenty to do for a flyfisher in Kurzeme.
