Big salmon Kola

Kola Peninsula

Kola Peninsula is the last remaining Atlantic Salmon fishing wilderness to be discovered. There were numerous pitfalls for the early pioneers who explored the region however the rewards that waited emboldened the organizers and inspired the followers. When it comes to outstanding fly-fishing rivers for Atlantic Salmon Russia’s Kola Peninsula stands head and shoulders above the rest of the world as the ultimate destination for truly outstanding Salmon Fishing. Trip to the Kola Peninsula is not just a Salmon fishermen paradise but at the same time an absolute wilderness retreat. The average salmon from a typical Kola river may not be as big and heavy, like those salmon running up the mighty Norwegian rivers, but they are plentiful and they are offering great sport. Besides these healthy runs of Atlantic Salmon from the beginning of fishing season in late May, there are beautiful Sea Trout, too, and the big Brown Trout and lovely Arctic Grayling, which are inhabiting these rivers permanently and adding a lot of beauty and joy to the fly-fishing.


Kola river

Legendary Kola river offers a great experience to fish for a giant Atlantic salmon. One of the big rivers on the Kola Peninsula, featuring wide deep pools, rapids, boulders and islands. Classic salmon river. Kola got its reputation for big fish. The river is relatively close to the Murmansk airport which makes it easy to get here, from the other side the fishing pressure can be high enough. Fishing on Kola river is done in 40km stretch, which is called ''Kola part 3''. Fishing here is done strictly by licences which easies pressure from the locals. You must realise that to catch a big Kola salmon is not that easy as it sounds or advertised, you will need a full support of a knowledgeable guide a salmon fly fishing experience. But it definitely worth a try!
