The Rabbies river is said by many to be the best river in the whole of Trentino.
With its tree-lined banks, crystal clear waters all year round and a flow which is not subject to sudden changes, the Rabbies is the perfect place to find huge numbers of marble trout and brown trout. Fishing is possible in the Val di Rabbi on the Rabbies river and some of its tributaries (Rio Val Lago Corvo, Rio Val Cavallaia, Rio Val Zambuga, Rio Salèc, Rio Valorz) and the Soprassasso lakes (Soprassasso, Rotondo, Quarto and Saleci lakes). Lago Soprassasso is a glacial lake lying 2,240 m above sea level, full of Arctic char and trout. The fishing season for river waters begins on the first Sunday in March and runs until the end of September, whilst fishing in the Soprassasso lakes is permitted from June.
You must have a fishing licence and a day permit, which can be purchased from the bar at the IP petrol station in Tassè (call 0463 985122), or from Bar Centrale in San Bernardo. A day pass costs €19. You can also purchase a permit for 2 consecutive days for €34 or a weekly pass (for 5 days of fishing) for €79. Anyone who does not have a fishing licence can visit the “Pianeta Sport” shop in Malè or the office of the Associazione Sportiva Pescatori Solandri in Pellizzano to obtain a special tourist licence valid for 30 days, free of charge.
