To reach the "central" point of the river section in question, it is best to take the first highway to Balsorano exit here, enter S.S. 82 in the direction of Sora, cross the village of Balsorano and after about 2 km turn right in the direction of Collepiano, past the bridge that crosses the Liri, we can turn left (direction C.da Pistola) and still traveled a few hundred meters, find a place for the car in one of the many pitches below the highway viaducts. Here, painful note, it is really dirty and bulky of all kinds of materials, probably also residues dating back to the construction sites of the freeway, present some do in this area. Fortunately, the situation improves, and very long along the true shore where, apart from some unmistakable plastic envelope hanging on the branches, the situation is quite natural. We can then decide whether to fish back or down to the valley without any substantial differences in catch possibilities. Keep in mind, however, that the great majority of the visitors stops near the bridge and in the quiet adjacent slope so this area is the most beaten and disturbed. Thanks to the supply of different streams coming from the small side valleys, the flow of water flows here consistently maintains a good consistency and the quality of the liquid element, partly due to the influence of the waters coming from the reclamation of the Fucino, collected from the upstream Liri (certainly not potable but still improving due to the intensification of the controls on the industrial discharges carried out by the prescribed organs) is acceptable, as well as acceptable is the transparency of the same. The appearance is typical of the middle Apennine stream with alternating scrapers, slopes where the water slows, rarer holes with deeper depths. The backdrop is everywhere bowl, rarely sandy, in some stretches the current is broken by larger boulders that slow it down, forming good rifugi for the pinnuta. The shores, though with varied plants and vegetation, are still quite practicable, especially in the winter - early spring; However, they also have traits that a real river fisherman would call "comfortable." As mentioned earlier, it is now some years that this stretch of river is in concession to the Annalasia headquarters in Avezzano (along with some stretches of canals belonging to the Bonifica del Fucino); the continuity of management with its repopulations and controls results in some results in terms of fish populations. Obvious signs of aquatic life are noticed only in the case of insects that cause fish to surface activity, however, even if the season is not in season because of the fact that this trait has been granted to the same operator for years and that this operator performs good sowing (including in an extremely "transparent way" by giving early notice to anyone who wants to assist you), the population of fario is consolidated; besides the trout we find chubs and some shrubbery. To be able to fish in the 4 Km in concession, you must be registered at the A.P.T. (a national card of € 30.00 for the year 2017, including insurance coverage against accidents related to the completion of fishing activities) and to possess a booklet for travelers (Euro 30 for the year 2017), in the remainder the fishing is free and subject to the regulations in force in Abruzzo for category "A" waters. For the above, you can go to the area's fishing stores (for example, ALO 'A. GO TO GO TOURS - Rome Tel. 0633611954) who will deliver us a card or booklet for the traveler; showing the receipt of the postal payment for the fishing license and identity card you can fish. They may also provide us with information on the changes of the last hour to the regulations described. In the concession section, the regulations in force are essentially those provided by the Abruzzo Region Code for Category A waters. The maximum number of catches of salmonids per fishing day (strictly to be noted on the booklet of the Signature Act) is 5 trout. Fishing is practicable every day except on Tuesdays and Thursdays when it does not fall in conjunction with a holiday. The abstract of the regulation is however reported on the tagacatture card. The places in question, except for the first few weeks of the season, are never particularly crowded. As always, the practicable / advisable technique conflicts with the preferences of the individual, however, it can be safely stated that the site is well suited to fishing with artificial lures (spinning and fly), even though it has characters so that they also give space to fans of other specialties, also bearing in mind that the latter (forbidden the bigatino), will also undermine the troupe roommates (chubby and barbie) that can represent a fun alternative. To conclude the site described can therefore be a good reference for early season exit but also a valid destination for all the rest of the year (perhaps for fly fishing), preserving, as already mentioned, an acceptable range and population year.
