Rynda week 24 ending 14th of June 2019

The spring here at Rynda this year was fast and powerful. Rynda river opened from ice about May 9th and on May 15th there was a pick of spring flood. After that the water level was gradually falling down. When we started our first fishing week on June 8th the conditions were pretty friendly. Water temp was unusually warm +10C and water level quite low for this early spring week. Therefore, our first group of good Rynda friends had most of pools below First Fall fishable. As...

2018 ASR Salmon Season Summary

The 2018 has been fascinating with weeks that reminded us both of how special these remarkable rivers can be, but also of how finely balanced nature can be, when the heatwave that swept Europe also visited the Arctic tundra in July. In addition, the vagaries of our unique location also meant that we were briefly but once more reminded that the remote and controlled zone in which our rivers flow has the occasional frustration to go hand in hand with the many advantages that...

Three rivers report for week 35/36/37 ending 14h of September 2018

Three Rivers. Week 35. Low water autumn conditions on the ASR coincided with a decision by the military authorities to conduct exercises within the restricted zone of the Northern Kola Peninsula leaving us with no alternative but to cancel the fishing trips for a number of our foreign guests. Whilst saddened and frustrated to have disappointed old friends in this way, a small number of old Russian friends were still most welcomed as always. It also offered us an unexpected...

Rynda week 32 ending 10th of August 2018

The weather! It changed after a month of hot sunny weather to something more likely you expect at the north coast of the Kola Peninsula! The air temp went down to 10-12C and the water temp responded quickly – reduced from 17C to 12C. The only problem was a very low water. But anyway, this big weather change made fishing life much easier. Now our international team from all over the world was searching for fish with enthusiasm, experimenting with fishing tactic and flies....

Rynda week 31 ending 3rd of August 2018

The very hot and low water season is the often topic for salmon anglers’ conversations this year. New international French-UK-USA-Swiss team was dealing with the most difficult conditions. The water level reached its absolute minimum this week. Even short rain did not move the level up. Nevertheless, the team did well, trying to find fish in rapids and small pockets. The most productive beat was Saami and down stream. Using all small hitched Sunrays and Golden Killer our...

Rynda week 30 ending 27th of July 2018

This week our old German-French-British fishing friends were fishing at Rynda. Again, as the previous week, the challenge was – fishing in the hottest ever conditions. Both rivers Rynda and Zolotaya were losing 2-3 cm each day and by the end of the week reached a difficult low level. Low water together with cloudless bright sky rose the water temp up to 21C. Despite all of that, our team had 60 fish and many lost, so it was tough but good fun. One important moment happened...

Rynda week 29 ending 20th of July 2018

This week we all will remember as a week with extremely difficult weather conditions. Clear blue skies and hot south wind made the water temp steeply risen from 15 to 20.5C. Together with the low water level, such circumstances required persistence from our anglers along with an individual fishing approach. And of course, Luck is a good thing to have. This week we were fishing with our good friends. Most of these anglers we know for many years and we are always happy to...

Rynda week 27 ending 6th of July 2018

186 fish – this was the fishing result for our Rynda anglers last week! The weather was friendly during the week. Warm days mixed nicely with cloudy and windy days. Water temp moved from 7C to 12C, the level was constantly dropping 2 cm per day. And by the end of the week the water level reached quite low figures. Such conditions were very comfortable for fishing and let us use wide range of fishing techniques – from sinking lines to surface flies. Of course, fishing on the...

ASR web report for weeks 25 and 26 ending Friday 29 June

Young fishers visit the ASR. Unfortunately we received short notice that the military authorities would conduct operations within the restricted zone of the Northern Kola Peninsula during the two week period of 16th – 30th June 2018. As a consequence, we were deeply disappointed not to be able to welcome our regular guests/friends on to these weeks. However, Vladimir and the staff were delighted to be able to seize the chance to provide a unique and unexpected opportunity...
