Riverl Volturno (Vulturnus, Olotronus, in latin) is the longest river in Southern Italy: 175 km from its springs in region Molise and mouth in region Campania, into the Thyrrenian sea.
It is one of the best rivers of Centre-South Italy and despite its distance from Rome and Viterbo it’s really worth a trip, possibly on two or three days.
It contains Brown, Rainbow and Chub which are a really challenge under some circumstances and is appreciated destination for many local and extra region flyanglers. In the past it contained also very nice Grayling, of which a few specimen are still present in the lower stretch.
Insects are plentiful and in late Spring, early Summer and Autumn the water often looks like a boiling pot. Fish are very shy and ask for accurate and soft casts. Most fish are in the 35 cm range with a number of about 50cm.
A short staying here is very comfortable thanks to the presence of a nice hotel within a very short distance from the water.
