Chavanga salmon fishing

         Our NEW Chavanga web page and NEW Blog



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.

Chavanga river

Beautiful river Chavanga located in the southern part of Kola Peninsula. This is a territory of ‘’Belomorska’’ tundra. It runs into the White sea, 60 km to the east from the Varzuga river estuary. Chavanga is a medium sized friendly river. It has a solid run of Atlantic salmon, also offers a great variety of fish such as good size sea and brown trout and grayling. Once you visit Chavanga you fall in love with the river the same day. The fishing territory is 17 km from the estuary to the big waterfall where salmon cant go any futher. We separate the river into three parts.
1st part : 5 km upstream from our lodge on the river bank. Fishing here is very interesting and comfortable. Many productive fishing pools throughout the whole part.
2nd part: 6 km upstream where the 1st part ends. River becomes more flat with many green meadows along the river. Comfortable waiding and many famous fishing pools are right here.
3rd part: 6 km upstream from the end of 2nd part, river changes drastically. Mountains and massive rocks start to appear with every step closer to the big waterfall. Very picturesque and wild territory. Waiding can be tricky here, as there are many deep stream and pools along the river.
