Russia, with it’s numerous rivers and lakes, has more water than any other country in the world, offering very interesting fishing opportunities: Atlantic salmon, 7 species of Pacific salmon, 2 species of taimen trout, several subspecies of arctic char, grayling, lennok trout, huge Yakut pike and many, many more. The vast majority of the best fishing destinations is hard to reach and remain unknown to international sportsmen. Others, including Kola peninsula, Kamchatka peninsula and Sakhalin island are becoming standards by which other destination measure their success. Fishing is very popular in Russia and as a drawback, many places close to large cities are overfished. Fortunately, hard to reach locations don’t suffer from overfishing and their numbers are endless. Contact Sergei Shushunov for any questions related to fishing in Russia.
