Fishing

The reason to fish in Mongolia is the chance to hook and land a freshwater fish weighing 25kg. This giant of a fish, the Taimen (scientific name Hucho hucho taimen), is a carnivorous monster that eats other fish, as well as rodents unlucky enough to get caught in the stream. It is by far the largest member of the salmonids - the family that includes trout, salmon, and grayling. According to Siberian tales, Russian fishermen have netted 90 kilogram taimen. The days of landing a taimen in Russia, however, are long gone as they have been pouched to near extinction. Only in Mongolia do these ferocious beasts survive in relatively large numbers.

    

At MongoliaCanoeing we are no fishing-specialists but we know all the rivers that carry Taiman and other fish including len ok (Brachymstax lenok), Arctic Grayling (Thymallus arcticus) and of course Pike of really huge sizes. Most of all we can bring you places that no one ever goes to except us.

As you can see from our pictures we have already brought various fishing and fly-fishing enthusiasts on our tours.

    

Please consider than MongoliaCanoeing pursues pure catch-and-release fishing to ensure survival of the taimen and other game fish of Mongolia and we will of course supply you with a license. Going with us will give you the unique opportunity to fish at places where nobody but us has fished before. Please contact us with your request.
