Taimen fishing in Mongolia



Taimen fishing is one of the most exciting and prestigious fishings. Taimen is accepted to salmon bloodline which allways live in the inner waters in comparison with the other salmons which come to the inner waters or rivers only for spawning. The fishing is carried out on the river flowing through the picturesque mountain taiga surroundings. The way of fishing is during the rafting with stops for a night in any suitable place. The group is delivered by means of jeeps (10-12 hours) or helicopter to the head river, then rafting to the certain place where the group will be taken by jeeps or helicopter. The most suitable time for taimen fishing this time is the end of September. The air temperature changes: 0 -5 C during the night and +15 +25 C during the day. It's better to have warm waterproof clothes in case of rain.

Taimen in these rivers can be of 40 kg weight. Taimen fishing is carried out by means of spinning or fly rod. During the rafting a group is accompanied by professional guides, a frontier guard (as the fishing is close to the frontier) and a cook. Meals three times a day are organized. The anglers are supplied by inflatable rafts for rafting. At the same time the other fishing is made. Taimen fishing is carried out on the principle "catch and release". The other fish cought by you can be cooked according to you wishes.
