Asp & Predator – 3 days Drifting Fishing in TICINO – 3 days trip
Fishing for Asps & Predators drifting in Italian Po Valley and tributary TICINO Valley is an extraordinary experience. Fishing takes place on sight, in shallow and clear water, drifting with a floatable boat looking for the best approach to Asps & Predators (Catfish, Cubs, Pikes, Zander, and big Barbs). Fishing is excellent throughout the summer, from late spring to late autumn. Winter is an exceptional season because the biggest asps are caught in the winter.
Alps Store offers the fishing guide service for Aspi & Predators on various rivers of the Po valley, such as Ticino, Adda, Mincio, Oglio, Sesia.
Drifting is about 43 km long and includes about 21/23 hours of descent in 3 days trip. Stunning drifting, you have opportunity to fish every days in new water.
We drift for about 15 km on the first day, about 15/17 the second day and 10/12 the third day. Overnight stay is in B&B or Hotel just close tu the river. Dinner will be in typical restaurant.
All security systems are guaranteed by Alps Store.
The landscape and the environment is truly wonderful and Asps & Predators are of a unique wildness.
The Lombard natural park of the Ticino Valley is a protected natural area established on 9 January 1974. It was the first Italian regional park to be established and the first European River Park. It is located along the banks of the Ticino river, entirely in Lombardy, and affects the provinces of Milan and Pavia, forming a green belt around the two cities.
The Ticino Park occupies an area of 91,410 hectares between Lake Maggiore and the Po.
Lombardy is the first Italian region by river extension. The great collector of the water flows that cross it, forming the pre-alpine lakes, is the Po river, the longest Italian waterway, which for about 260 kilometers marks the southern border of the region, plowing the territory of the Pavia and Mantua provinces.
– TICINO The first and most important tributary of the Po is the Ticino river, a tributary of Lake Maggiore and its only outlet. Ticino flows in the provinces of Varese and Pavia
– Sesia, a predominantly Piedmontese river, which for a few tens of kilometers marks the border with Lombardy in correspondence with the provinces of Pavia and Vercelli:
– ADDA flows entirely in Lombardy, bathing six provinces along its 313 kilometers and forming, along its path, Lake Como, of which it is also an emissary. The river has a torrential character in the initial stretch and, once out of the Lario, in correspondence with the Naviglio di Paderno, built starting from the sixteenth century to allow commercial vessels to overcome the jumps and obstacles of the river and therefore connect the Lake of Como to Milan through the Navigli system.
– OGLIO river crosses the entire Valcamonica and forms Lake Iseo. Finally, it flows into the Po after having in turn received the flow of the Mella and Chiese rivers – the latter tributary and emissary of Lake Idro.
– MINCIO Emissary of Lake Garda, the Mincio is bordered by a network of cycle and pedestrian paths that allow tourists to visit the wide range of natural environments created by its path and the rare animals that inhabit them. Once you reach the plain, the Mincio gives rise to the three Mantuan “lakes” before flowing into the Po, of which it forms the last tributary from the left.
Of no less importance for the hydrographic structure of the region, for sporrtive fishing in drifting and for the flow of the Great River, of which they are tributaries or sub-tributaries, in Lombardy also flow:
– Olona and the Lambro of which the former yields its waters to the latter through the Lambro Meridionale, its largest tributary;
– Brembo, which, with its four spring branches, collects the waters that descend from the upper Brembana Valley and then enters the Adda after about 70 kilometers;
– Secchia, the only right confluent of the Po river, in the Mantuan Oltrepò;
– Serio flows entirely in Lombardy, crosses the provinces of Bergamo and Cremona and flows into the Adda in the locality of Bocca Serio in the municipality of Montodine (Cremona).
“our Guides go fishing every week on the waters we propose, they know and experience the seasonal pattern and every small change of the rivers: the water levels and the seasonal hatched make fishing difficult to interpret, and that is where it is essential the work of the Guide. The result of the day of fishing in terms of satisfaction, fishing experience and cultural growth depends on the Guide who accompanies you. It often happens that the deep knowledge of the Guide puts you in a position to be successful even in the most difficult season. Our Guides offer theirs customers the service they would claim themselves when facing a fishing trip”. Gianluca Bonomi, owner Alps Store & Fishing Services.
