Trout Adventure Fishing Northwest Russia

The heart of the Kola Peninsula not far from the Monche Tundra and the Biosphere Nature Reserve is a unique area of lakes and rivers known as the Eldorado for Trout and Grayling fishermen. The lakes have also many other species of the salmon family like Arctic cisco, Brown trout, Arctic char, char and other whitefish like Perch and Pike. The rivers are ideal for fly-fishing and spooning. The lakes are excellent for trolling. The local fishermen have an average catch of 3 to 4 fishes per 3 hours. Trout, grayling and Brouwn trout can be in sizes of 3 to 5 kg.

This fishing tour is really for the adventurers, who likes to feel the real wild nature (60 km from civilization) and to live from the nature. During your adventure you have possibility to meet brown bear, elk, reindeer, fox, wolf, otters, weasel, hare and forest birds like ptarmigans and grouse. For traveling to this true Eldorado we use a Russian 4x4 troop bus. In the pointed area on the map we will set up several tent camps close to the interesting fishing spots or we stay in hunting houses. Your local guide takes care about the camps, campfires, coffee and meals when you are fishing.

In short, a unique fishing adventure on Lake Umbozero and rivers of Lovozero Tundra is waiting for you.
