Trout Fishing Report 6A – 2016

Bush Litza and & Scones Kharlovka From the groups leaving the tundra we learned that the fishing conditions were tough due to the unusual hot weather. When we arrived the temperature returned to more normal levels from the tropical heat during the weeks before. Water temperature were around 15-16C in both Litza and Kharlovka. There were very few insects on the water and almost no rising was observed. Water levels were 30-40 cm lower than during the first weeks....

Trout Fishing Report 5A – 2016

Once again a unique brown trout experience for a group of fly-fishermen staying at Swan Isles in Litza during 23 – 30 of July. We had great and difficult fishing and caught 119 trout larger than 1 kg. Our “newbie” Frank topped the catch with a new personal best of 3,5 kg. Again our warmest thanks to Mr. Kola, our guide Luganscky Volodya and the rest at Kharlovka Company. Our guide Luganscky proved again to be a very experienced brown trout fisherman, as well as an...

Trout Fishing Report 4C – 2016

I have been to the Kola Penninsula 6 times- first time in 1996 – and it gets better and better, much because of the strict rules by Kharlovka, and dedicated flyfishers who visit. I am really proud of being a part of this. Some fun facts: Everyone in our group passed the magical 3 kilo brown trout. That is pretty insane, even when it comes to wild trout Kola Penninsula standards. We also had an average size of 2.6 kilos. That is even more insane when it comes to brown...

Rynda week 30 ending 22th of July 2016

This week a multinational team from UK, France, Slovenia and Iceland fished here at Rynda. Fishing conditions were not easy, the most influencing factor now is very low water. However, our anglers still managed to land 105 fish, and many others were lost! Because we didn’t have any rain for quite a long time, water continuously was dropping from 0,66 to 0,61 cm, and it’s almost the minimum level. In general, the weather was warm with water temperature around 16С. The...
