Fishermen often call Montenegro the “Fishing Paradise of the Balkans” or an “Unexplored fishing oasis of Europe.” No wonder fishing has become one of the most popular activities during summer. There are several options for those who would like to try fishing. The best places are the Tara, Ljuca, Lim, Moraca Mrtvica, and Zeta rivers. The water is very clean, so one can try fly fishing for brown trout, salmon, wild hucho, grayling, and many other varieties of fish th​rou​ghout the country.

Another option is to try fishing at the sea. Unfortunately, there are no organized tours, but you can deal with local fishermen in Kotor, Tivat, Herceg Novi or other towns on the Adriatic coast. Share the boat with local fisherman and share a dinner with them after the day at the sea followed by a couple of shots of rakia (national alcoholic drink).
