Trout Fishing Report 3D – 2018

Canoeing Rynda river. We started the canoe trip at Torismann lake. The weather was nice and warm. There were not many insects hatching the first two days, but enough mayflies to give everybody fun dry fly fishing. The third day we had an enormous caddis hatch, with no fish rising. Even flies fished deep were rejected. On Tuesday evening we decided to move about 7 km downstream. On Wednesday the weather changed with winds and some rain. This gave us a very good day of dry...

Trout Fishing Report 2B – 2018

We started at Big Trout with great expectations. I have been there several times during the same week of the year with great success. The spring had come and everything looked right. The strange thing was that nothing was hatching and we saw almost no insects in the bushes. The colour of Kharlovka was murky, maybe because of a very strong wind and great waves on the lake.The total amount of fish for the group at Big Trout was only 11 trout, most of them taken a few hours...

Fishermen were greeted by extremely favourable overhead conditions at the beginning of the week – overcast skies and cool air...

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...

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...

Rynda week 23 ending 9th of June 2018

Last week Rynda camp welcomed our six old friends from France, Switzerland, United Kingdom and Russia. The photos can’t reflect the tough conditions which fishermen faced during the week. The air and water temperature were not far from 0C. By the end of the week the water temp finally reached 4C. The strong northern wind with sleet and hailstone were regularly testing the fishing spirit of our anglers. Water level wise the week was ok. The peak of the flood this...
