       Our NEW Chavanga web page and NEW Blog



Vasil Bykau

We offer 2 options of fishing trips for the largest taimen all  over the world.  Khabarovsk region. The river  Tugur and the river Bichy.

Common information

Fish population is an   mixture of Siberian, Amur and the Pacific fish. Taimen, siberian trouts - lenoks and two species of pikes - Lena, Amur pike, Hadar and Amur grayling are the most interesting for sport fishing.     Pacific salmon - chum and pink salmon  come, coho and sockeye salmon too. There is also a char-Malma.
Tugur - a special river, unique river ,  it  is probably   the best for biggest  Hucho   taimen all over  the world. River  is well protected, here you can catch a spinning and fly fishing. Each group catches record taimen weighing 40 kg. We can take on Tugur limited number of fishermen. This is a special expensive tour for the fishing  for a record Hucho taimen. There are authentic data on capture here fishes in weight in 70 and even 95 kgs
Bichy  is   smaller in size and it is more convenient to catch taimen and salmon on fly fishing . Giant taimens  are less common here , the normal maximum size of trout less than 30 kg  but its possible to land a lot of 20-25 kg taimens. This is the most comfortable fly fishing taimen trip.


The best time for taimen  fishing is  June and early July, the second half of September, beginning of October.

  1. please take care of the taimen, many photos show very poor handling that is harmful to the fish. Your taimen are your country's treasure, there are no more of them, no where else in world. If you do not handle them with respect and care you will kill them. Then there will be no more big taimen, none for future generations, and none for you to catch either.
