Last 20 years I `m fishingChavanga`s salmons every year. It is the river of the average sizes and runs into the White sea. It differs in character from the rivers of northern coast of Kola peninsula. The summer here is longer, and the river is convenient for wading and fishing and is accessible to fishers on all extent. It is excellent range for fishing not only a salmon, but also for hunting for grayling and a trout.
Clops`s silver salmon. Pokosy camp, Chavanga river, autumn salmon run.
I suggest to consider a situation from a point of influence of a season on the river, from May and till October. In the spring the river has big enough weight of water. Its level rises on metre and more. At this time the falls become an absolute obstacle for a salmon. The set of fish gathers on a site below falls, in numerous holes and on reaches among rocks. This time, certainly, is one of the best for catching, only it is necessary, that the water level allowed to cast. Usually, by the end of May water falls to comfortable level, this time is called as the prime time, this most valuable time in a season.
In June the water level goes down, fish starts to rise on the river above falls. Now the new piece of the river becomes very interesting to fishing. For those who does not like to stand on one place, and likes to resemble and look at new places, it is very pleasant oppotunity.
