301 Fishing on Bolshaya River (licensed fishing)

Bolshaya River is the biggest river on western coast and the second longest river in Kamchatka. Nearly 40 thousand King salmons and more then 300 thousand Red salmons come here for spawning. In some years more then 20 million Pink salmons, over 100 thousand Chum salmons and more then 200 thousand Silver salmons. This river is rather rich in Char, Grayling, Rainbow trout and East Siberian char. The width of the river is 40 to 60 m., some places 50 to 100 m. Current is 1,5 1,9 m/sec, depth 1,5 8 m. Temperature of the water 5-8 degrees. The river flows through the valley between the Sredinny and Ganalsky Ridges and then cuts through the Sredinny Ridge and runs to the Western Kamchatka lowland where it divides into several brooks and forms many islands. Fishing takes place in wild nature where forest and mountain views are changed by plain landscapes.

Note: Silver Salmon is a salmon family, Pacific salmon genus. Near Asian coast it lives up from Anadyr River along Kamchatka coast down to the rivers of north-western part of the Sea of Okhotsk. Rarely can it be seen in eastern Sakhalin and Hokkaido. The major population of Silver Salmon is found in eastern and western Kamchatka. In Kamchatka waters it reaches 88 sm. in length and 6,8 kg. in weight. But the main part of the catch is fish of 56-74 sm. in length and 3,0 - 3,5 kg. in weight. Male fish is usually bigger then a female for 5-8 sm. Its passing through the rivers is prolonged and continues from end of June till December. In Kamchatka Silver salmon is divided into summer, autumn and winter kinds. Summer Silver salmon spawns in September October, autumn in November December and winter in December February. Spawning grounds stretch from the mouth of the rivers to their upper reaches and are mostly on stretches or channels with outcrops of springs and subsoil waters and current of 0,3 0,5 m/sec. In contradiction to the Red salmon Silver salmon does not spawn in lakes. It has a great fishing value. Its catch is done with stand and fuse nets during its going for spawning. Silver salmon is considered to be a great object for sport and amateur fishing because it keeps its predator reflexes during its going for spawning as well as on spawning grounds. Sport and amateur fishing is done with spinning and fly-fishing tackle. Shaking and spinning spoon-baits and synthetic flies of wet type are used as a bait.
