The Story

Embark on a European fly-fishing adventure with Orvis and our endorsed partners at Italy on the Fly. Italy is the best place to combine an unforgettable fly-fishing experience with the journey of a lifetime. A premier fishing experience surrounded by the Italian Alps and Dolomites is what any outdoor-loving angler needs. Native fish that call these Italian waters home include the ancestral marble trout, Mediterranean brown, avid brookie, and the acrobatic stream-bred rainbows. Our guides will assist you during your fishing days, show you the best spots, techniques, and flies while also sharing the history behind each place, each dish, and each part of your Italian experience.

Our trip’s accommodation is a family run hotel located in the Trentino Region in the town of Ponte Arche. Close to the high mountain ranges of the Alps and Dolomites, the small village is famous for its thermal baths and natural parks. It is also close to the world-renowned Lake Garda towns such as Riva del Garda. The property manager along with her father and this team makes sure your stay is memorable. The rooms are clean, simply decorated, and well-appointed and come with a balcony. The lobby is very comfortable and spacious and there is also outdoor seating, perfect for summer days.


Food & Drink

The hotel has a popular restaurant with local Italian dishes and a little bar for a nice aperitivo and grappa or an amaro after dinner. Guests’ day starts off with a rich buffet breakfast every morning, and each meal is prepared with love and attention to detail. Packed lunch options are available after breakfast. Later in the evening, dinner consists of a three-course meal, which offers typical Trentino dishes.

Each morning you will meet in the dining area around 7:00am. After breakfast you and your guide will come up with a game plan for fishing for the day. Your day will be mapped out based on what kind of fishing you would like to do, where to go, and what species you would like to target. Depending on the weather, lunch will either be prepared ahead of time and served on the river or there may be the rare opportunity to have lunch at a local restaurant. After lunch, you will continue fishing through the afternoon targeting your quarry. When the day of fishing is done, you will be brought back to your hotel around 5-5:30pm. Once there, you can take the opportunity to freshen up, go for a short walk, and get prepared for your evening meal. Dinner will typically consist of a 3-course meal, and every night’s meal will be different from the night before. You will have your choice between several options of appetizers, entrées, and desserts. All food is prepared fresh daily and is a culinary celebration no one wants to miss. Walking around the lively village is an ideal way to spend the golden light hour after dinner.

Fishing adventures are based in the Trentino region, known for stunning vertical walls, sheer cliffs, and lots of deep long valleys. The snowy peaks that make this a winter sport wonderland also ensure plenty of fresh water in these valleys, so the trout are particularly happy and plentiful. The season for these native brown, brook, and wild marble trout runs April through October. Anglers stay low in the valleys for the spring and fall months, chasing trophy fish. The pristine lakes provide wonderful rainbow, brown, and brook trout fishing even when sudden summer rains overwhelm the alpine streams. Most of the fishing beats have very easy access and can be reached by car. There are options for fishing spots reachable by gentle, flat hiking among wild horses and mountain huts. We will make sure to create your ideal fishing experience by matching the type of access you most enjoy with the conditions of the day.

Native fish in Italy: marble trout (Alps and Dolomites only - Salmo Trutta Marmoratus), brown trout (Salmo Trutta Fario), Arctic char (Salvellinus Alpinus) grayling (Tymallus Tymallus) Italic pike (Esox Flaviae) and other game and course species.

Stream-bred species include rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss), brook trout (Salvellinus Fontinalis), and other species.
