Fishing and Species
Kamchatka is known for its wild rainbow trout, where the average is 20" +. Of course they are not born at 20" so there are some smaller fish, as there are some larger ones pushing up towards 30". There is a lot of food in the river to grow big healthy trout. Most all the fishing is done by wading. There are Silvers in the Ozernaya and Kings and Sockeye in the Two Yurt. There are some char and Dolly Varden and a bounty of nice sized Grayling that are a kick to fish to with skating caddis. The quality and the uniqueness of the fishing is one of a kind in the wolrd.

Fly fishing for Rainbow Trout in the wilderness of the Kamchatka Peninsula is one of the "must do" experiences for anglers. What makes this different than most other trout fishing is that it is very remote and you will see no other anglers. In addition to the pristine condition of the watershed and the fishery, there are salmon returning to both rivers and at times prolific hatches of caddis and mayflies. Mousing and swinging sculpins add to the fun and complexity of fishing here. This is not nymphing with egg patterns. There is no need for the "dawn patrol" starts you may have experienced at other lodges or fishing, as you have all of this water to your self.
There are two separate fishing programs 1 - Floating the Two Yurt River for 6 days and nights. Unlike trips where you put up camp every night, here you float from camp to camp, each having A frame cabins for the 6 guests. This river is the outlet of a lake by the same name, with consistent flows that make for the same fishing.
2 - The other option is jet boat accessed fishing out of a base camp on the Ozernaya River. There are 15 miles plus of river to fish. They use Lowe boat and Mercury and Yamaha outboards. The river is a big spring creek, with hatches and fish that live off a constant buffet of food. This is a 6 day and night trip.
