The crystal clear waters, the spectacular water features and the deep natural gorges offer strong emotions to fishermen who want to attend Val Sermenza, all immersed in unspoiled nature. Two splendid alpine streams, Egua and Sermenza, enter their waters in the artificial lake of Rimasco.
In the artificial lake of Rimasco it is possible to fish with only a daily permit without also having a government license. In the evocative body of water you can fish Fario trout with the “fly", “spoon" and “spinning" technique with a maximum of 5 catches. The opening period is, indicatively, from April to the first Sunday of October, weather conditions permitting. For members of S.V.P.S. there is a discount on the purchase of the daily permit.
In the above mentioned torrens, Egua and Sermenza, there are stretches managed by S.V.P.S. and by A.F.V. “Val D’Egua” and they are the following:

– Fishing reserves Supporting Members of S.V.P.S. (*)
Beautiful Fario trout with a very colorful livery, even of large size, populate this splendid high mountain reserve. There are three kilometers of torrent: from the confluence of the Dorca torrent, just upstream of the Lake of Rimasco, to the “Molino” Bridge, along the road that leads to Carcoforo. This reserve is suitable for all techniques, but it’s particularly interesting for fly fishing.

This second High mountain reserve has similar characteristics to the “Egua” torrent one. It extends for about three kilometers, from the “Buzzo” waterfall up to 200 meters upstream of the “Quare” bridge, next to the road that leads to Rima and is easily accessible. In the meadows along the torrent, it’s possible to meet wild animals as roe deer and chamois. The catches in this reserve are always exciting: Fario and Irises trout specimens are the most present in this stream.
