Taymyr Peninsula

Raft fishing on the Kotuy River, transportation by helicopter

 

Fishing for trophy taimen, grayling, whitefish, pike, stone loach etc.

 

The Head of the Club believes the river head of the Kotuy river and its tributaries are the most beautiful places in the world. Enormous white  rock citadels frame the valley of the river with crystal-clear virescent water. You get closer to the river's lower-course, and the dream-like scenery of  the severe Northern nature turns into bleak forest tundra landscapes. The same with fishing. The river head can offer a great catch of greyling and taimen, an even better chance of it on middle reach and almost none on the lower-course. Instead it has a lot of pike, occasional stone loach and nelma. In general, fishing on the Kotuy and its tributaries is challenging: fish needs to be sought for, you can spend half a day rafting without a single bite. But if you find an efficient spot it is possible to catch a dozen of 10-30 kg taimen even without moving anywhere.

We stick to the "catch  and release" principle. Only the Club guide is authorized to decide on amount and type of fish to be served as a meal.

After reanimation all taimen must be released.
