The best river to go fly fishing here is Somesul Cald River, which carves its beauty through the spectacular karst landscapes of the Western Carpathians. Massive limestones, deep gorges, caves and a huge lake complete this dream destination for fly fishers. The surroundings are just breathtaking. This is the best place for fly fishers, but also for active nature lovers or just relaxing underneath the endless skies.
Located only about 2 hours drive from the International Airport of Cluj-Napoca, the river Somesul Cald springs high up in the Apuseni Mountains and after a stretch of about 27 km, where it also forms a gorge, it reaches the dam lake Belis. The lake itself is spectacular, covering over 17 km in length with a depth of over 105 m – perfect hiding place for lake trout.
The river is home for some of the finest grayling and trout fishing in the Romanian Carpathians. And above all, the population of Salmonids is natural. You will never find here stocked rainbow or other species except the beautiful wild brownies and painted-like colored graylings
