Fishing in the River Chiese

Fishing In The River Chiese title=

Fishing in Trentino also means fishing in the crystal-clear waters of the river Chiese.

Fishing in Valle del Chiese

The fishing seasonFrom the end of February, the Trentino Fishing system brings many lovers of the sport to the waters of its lakes and rivers. The opening of the fishing season in Trentino is an important event: you’ll often come across fishers armed with their rods and plenty of patience here, even in Valle del Chiese, on the trails that wind their way along the banks of rivers or in "gorges" so narrow they seem like canyons.
For those who are slightly less adventurous or have not yet mastered the art of lines and floats, calm, placid lakes offer the perfect opportunity for a relaxing day in nature.


The 2023 season opens on SUNDAY 26 FEBRUARY, while fishing is banned on Tuesdays and Fridays.

special zones and no-kill zones

Also known as catch-and-release zones, these were instituted for the first time in 1954 in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in the United States. The concept has also been widespread in Trentino for some time, where it has grown in popularity as both a fish management measure and as a personal philosophy for fishers.
There are five no-kill zones in Valle del Chiese: no-kill 1, no-kill 2, no-kill 3, no-kill 4 and no-kill 5; in addition to the special zones of "Borgo Chiese" and "Val di Fumo".
The no-kill zones are only accessible subject to booking, call: Helga +39 348 8449115 (from 8.00 a.m.-11.30 a.m. and 2.00 p.m.-6.00 p.m.)

The lakes

You’ll be spoilt for choice with the many shimmering pools of water scattered throughout Valle del Chiese. The lakes of Trentino are infinite in their diversity, and in their many different shades. From the glassy pools of water on the valley floor to the mid-mountain or plateau lakes, all the way up to the Alpine lakes tucked away amid the peaks. From Lake Idro to the Adamello massif, these enchanting little blue and green gems act as treasure chests protecting precious biodiversity and incredible aquatic wildlife. Dive right in to the world of Trentino’s lakes!
