Mongolia - Taimen
Fish for Taimen, Amur trout, and lenok from private camps located in the Mongolian wilderness. A few guests each autumn have permission to nearly two hundred miles of blue ribbon fly-fishing water with experienced guides. Watching massive taimen explode the surface of a wild Mongolian river to hammer a well-presented fly is unquestionably one of the world's most incredible angling experiences.
Over two hundred taimen are caught each year in the mid 30 inch range with several over forty inches, the largest measured was nearly 5 ft. Fishing is a combination of drifting and wading. Each day on the river, anglers and guides float directly from camp to fish fresh water. Upon arrival at the next downstream camp, the staff has your bags waiting, the bed made, the fire lit and dinner prepared. This “no drive” schedule maximizes fishing time, allowing guests to explore a variety of water, and keeps the river fresh. Every section of river is usually fished only a few days each year. Trips are limited to six fishermen.
With the help of 6 Mongolian County Governments and the World Wildlife Fund the entire river system is designated as the world’s first Taimen sanctuary and these are the only waters in Mongolia designated “catch and release“ for all anglers and “fly-fishing only“ for all international anglers. Trips take place late August to mid October
