Kharlovka week 28 ending 14th of July 2017

New record on the mighty Kharlovka with 337 salmon for 13 rods! Although things started off a bit slow with only 4 salmon recorded in the book on the first day, everything quickly came just right for this returning group of good friends who went on to enjoy some fantastic fishing that won’t soon be forgotten. The conditions were almost perfect with the rivers slowly dropping away about 4cm/day finishing off the week with a good level of 45cm on the home pool scale...

Rynda week 28 ending 14th of July 2017

Perfect time! This is the headline for this week at the Rynda river. Rynda guests were successfully using the full spectrum of fishing tactics from sinking, intermediate and floating lines along with tubes, doubles, singles and hitched flies! Rynda was developing nicely, during the week the water level dropped up to 32 cm and water temp moved from 11C to 14C. Salmon run responded to the water dropping immediately. If in the beginning of the week most of the salmon were...

Rynda week 27 ending 7th of July 2017

Last week was a start of the summer here in tundra. Water level dropped 30 cm during the week. The week started with unbelievably low water temp of 4C and by the end of the week the water temp reached 10C! Along with the water level dropping this fact changed fishing in a big way. Our anglers started to put away their sinking lines and switched to intermediates and even floating lines. Last week at Rynda three different generations fished together – from veterans to...

Kharlovka week 27 ending 7th of July 2017

Summer like conditions finally arrived to the far northern tundra along with plenty of sun and warming rivers last week that went from 7.6C up to 13C – while water levels dropped away nicely at about 6cm/day to finish the week at 76cm on the home pool scale. The combination of the rivers warming and the levels dropping led to some fantastic fishing results for the lucky group of 12 international guests. Following introductions and group bonding the boys were obviously...

Kharlovka week 26 ending friday 30th of June 2017

Notice from the authorities of a late decision to conduct naval exercises off the controlled zone within which we operate, necessitated some last minute changes to the teams of guests at ASR last week. Whilst our overseas friends for this specific week only therefore had to postpone their week’s fishing in 2017 until a little later in the season, our many friends who have less restricted access were able to join camp and enjoyed some improving fishing. Nevertheless, our new...

Rynda week 25 ending 23th of June 2017

We had a challenging week with big rising water and cold conditions. It was a bit like fishing in Gin&Tonic water under icy rain! The Rynda River reached its peak and then stayed at this huge level whole week. This along with cold (1.5C) water temps kept most of the salmon down at the lower Sea pool. Such extreme river condition required heavy sinking lines and even some big brass tubes – Snaeldas, Willy Guns, Temple Dogs were also affective patterns. The fishing...

Kharlovka week 25 ending Friday 23 June 2017

With water levels peaking back on their opening day at a massive 149cm which is about a meter higher than normal for this time of year, the group stared out the windows in amazement at the swollen rivers below and pondered their chances upon arrival -’like finding a needle in a haystack’. Thankfully – while there must have been a few monsters swimming up the thick currents in the middle, there turned out to be plenty of big silver lining the banks of the...

Kharlovka week 24 ending Friday 16 June 2017

Looking back we can say that the cold conditions through the end of May has delayed the big spring thaw on the north coast by about 2-3 weeks this season. With rising water levels and plenty of snow – ice still along the banks, we decided early on to limit last week’s group of fishing warriors to 8 guests with 6 veteran guides to lead the way. This was the first trip to the ASR for the majoirity of our guests. Water levels during the week went from a challenging...

Rynda week 24 ending 16th of June 2017

Late and cold spring finally exploded! As a result, during the week Rynda was rising in a big way adding 10-16 cm to the water measuring stick every day. And by the end of the week river almost reached the peak. High water reduced our fishing places. Most of them are too heavy now. Nevertheless, we have to pass this flood and gradually get back to normal. Fishing wise, in the given conditions our anglers did very well! Here are some highlights we would like to share with...
