River Ente

Fishing in Italy asks for a national licenze and is open all year round with a number of limitations. Rivers where trout are present cannot be fished from the first Sunday of October to the last Sunday of February but there are many exceptions (earlier opening or delayed closing, this depending on local regulations). Chub, Barbel, Pike, Grayling, Carp, Black Bass (just to mention fly takers) have their “closed periods”, which is not the same in every province. No-Kill stretches have their own open/closed months and special rules. Wading is permitted everywhere (but not encouraged) with very few exceptions.

This mountain trout stream is in the lower part of Tuscany (not to be confused with Tuscia). still within a reasonable distance from Viterbo and offers a no-kill stretch with very nice trout and cyprinids. The structure of the river is typical of the Appenines: tumbling water mixed with long quiet flats. Average depth is not excessive and hip boots are often enough. However, waders are suggested in many cases.

Terrestrials and fancy flies (wet and dry) give both good results but it might happen to be in front of a hatch and this often asks for tiny or specific patterns.
