Djetinja is very suitable for fly fishing. It is easy wadeable, with plenty of diverse positions and conditions to cast a fly. There are lot of quiet pools, but also rapids. Average depth of the river is about 70cm and width is maximum 15m. Deepest pools are up to 3m deep.

Brown trout is the oldest fish here, but huchen and grayling are introduced several years ago. Graylings already reach the trophy size and huchens are present in every pool. They are not so big, because the river is too small for that big predator, but specimens about 80cm are not rare.
