Mongolia Fishing Tour for Taimen 11 - Days
Fishing in Mongolia is wonderful experience. We have over 4000 rivers and more than 30 lakes - all totally unspoilt and unpolluted, and a fabulous place to catch a wide variety of fish. Although many of them are similar varieties to those found in European rivers, Mongolian fish are much bigger and more abundant - much more satisfying for a day at the river! The Taimen, the largest fish in the salmon family, is a real challenge to catch - try your luck on this tour! The average taimen is around 33 inches and weighs roughly 10 pounds, however, there will be multiple chances every day to try catching fish over 50 inches.

Siberian White Fish, Siberian Grayling, Lenok, Umber, Baikal, Omul and River Perch are among the other varieties you will catch among the spectacular scenery of Mongolia's exotic nature. You will stay at a fishing lodge on the river Balj in the eastern region of Mongolia. The fishing area in the campground extends about 10-15 km along the river and the surrounding area is sparsely populated, with the exception of a few nomadic dwellings.
The peaceful environment offers a perfect opportunity to escape the tension of the city and just relax and unwind. The fishing season lasts from about August 20th till October 20th. During this period, there is no rain and water is usually transparent and at a low level, enabling the best catch. June 15th to July 5th is also possible as the water level is normal, however there is occasional rain.
We don't teach you how to catch fish we just show you where to fish.

Thank you for our delightful short travel in Mongolia. Most sincerely, Lisa Pearl from USA. 2011 Sep

Dear Oyunaa,
We had a lovely tour with Dawa and Nanida. We enjoyed every minute of their company. Dawa was very knowledgeable and gave us a meaningful appreciation for Mongolian history, culture, and land. I wonder if you could pass along this email to her because I never got to thank her in person. I got rushed into our hotel to confirm our reservation.

Thank you for our delightful short travel in Mongolia. Jamie from UK. 2010 Aug

Thanks for taking us out on the first friday - let me know when The Lemons are heading to Shanghai as i'd like to go to their gig.
If you're ever in Shanghai - get in touch.

All the best,
