Very small lake - took us less than an hour to go around it. There are more hicking trails around it but we didn't have time. It's a nice place to visit in the afternoon, if you are tired from the day's activities. But no need to spend time to specially vist it.

This little lake is one of the best fly fishing spots in Northern Italy. It is stocked regularly with German Brown and Rainbow Trout during the summer months and is easily accessible from the town of Pellizzano in the Val di Sole. Note: The road from Pellizzano to the lake is steep and a bit narrow.

The lake is fed by several small streams and springs that flow from the Brenta Dolomites. If you are new to Italy, here's a few tips:

1) Purchase a license (mandatory) in Pellizzano at the Bar Centrale.
2) Come early and leave late.
3) There is paid parking and free parking, if you don't mind a walk.
4) The month of August is a total zoo and should be avoided.
5) Most high mountain fly patterns work well here including nymphs in sizes 16 to 12.
6) 4 to 6 weight rods recommended along with waders.
7) The lake is open to catch and release and catch and kill. (check limit regulations - usually 5)
8) The lakeside restaurant is only open in peak summer months; bring a lunch.
9) There are numerous picknic tables and grassy fields to eat in as well.
10) Check the regulations as the outfall stream is only leagally fished down to the stone bridge.

Buona Fortuna!

It's wonderful. Relaxing view of the lake with amazing trees and green leaves all around, and you only hear the sound of the nearby waterfalls. There are even several fountains you can get fresh water from. Don't miss it, and bring a book with you to enjoy some relaxing time up there!
