This fishing district is situated between two beautiful medieval towns Rožmberk n.Vltavou and Český Krumlov both dominated by nice castles. One of the best fly fishing river in the Czech Republic, with steep parts and deep pools, which hosts fish stock composed by native population of brown trout and stocked rainbow trout (fish are stocked from raft to whole river stretch). Other native fish occurring in river are chub, dace, roach and perch, occasionally grayling. The river used to be the grayling paradise, but the population of grayling was destroyed by wintering cormorants at the turn of the millennium and it still fails to recover despite of the intensive stocking program.

River flows from the largest man-made reservoir in the Europe called Lipno and therefore the water in the river is relatively warm in autumn and fly fishing season with good dry fly fishing continues till November.

Because of the high canoeist’s traffic, from mid-June till the end of August, there is recommended to go fishing in the early morning or in the evening.
