Grand Varzuga salmon

Grand Varzuga salmon

To experience the world’s most prolific Atlantic salmon fishing look no further than the many rivers of Russia’s Kola peninsula.

Other than the Kola, there can be very few angling destinations where, when each cast is made, the expectation of connecting with a huge salmon is so high.

Salmon Junkies have managed to get full exclusivity on a long termed lease of more than 30 km of the most attractive and enjoyable salmon fishing on the Kola Peninsula – the famous Varzuga River. One of the most popular and fantastic salmon rivers on Kola, this charming section of the river will give us access to the most prestigious and remote part of Varzuga from the Yzia tributary down to the junction with Pana River.

The program will combine the best from the Varzuga watershed with a two day adventure, where you will float the river from Yzia river down to the Pana River.

Grand Varzuga is a very popular river with anglers from all over the world. No wonder considering the catch records, amazing scenery and wonderful fly fishing pools. FishPal now has availability
