Russia has nearly 100,000 rivers and several lakes. Almost all of them have abundant marine life. It’s safe to say that this country is an angler’s paradise. There’s something for every kind of angler here. If you have an avid interest in fishing and love challenges, you can travel deeper to the more remote areas of the country. If you only just dabble in fishing, there are several spots close to popular tourist destinations like St. Petersburg and Moscow.

At Taiga Travel, we encourage people to explore the lesser known territories in Russia for fishing trips. Not only will you get excellent fishing opportunities, but you’ll also experience some of the most beautiful places in the world.

Regions for Fishing

As we mentioned before, Russia has a large number of lakes and rivers. You can find an opportunity to fish almost everywhere. However, there are some regions that are particularly well known amongst anglers, including:

  • Kola Peninsula Rivers – The Kola Peninsula has 82 rivers that have abundant marine life. It’s a good idea to visit this region between the end of May and the end of June. The rivers are ripe with fish during this season. This is one of the most popular destinations for fishing adventures. You’ll find wild Atlantic salmon, trout, grayling, cod, whitefish, and Arctic Char.

  • Lake Seliger – This lake is quite close to Moscow and is very popular amongst casual anglers. The water body covers an area of 96.5 square miles, so finding a catch here is a little difficult. Nevertheless, it’s a great place to visit, especially in the middle of July. You can catch Pike, Perch, Eels, Bass, and Carp.

  • River Volga – You can easily expect this place to be crowded during peak season. It’s one of the most popular destinations in Russia for anglers. The Lower Volga region is massive, so it’s a good idea to study it well. This river is known for massive catfish and carp. It also contains sabrefish, buffalo fish, bass, and pike perch.

  • Lake Baikal – This list wouldn’t be complete without a mention of the deepest lake in the world. This lake also has some of the purest water in the world, so it’s abundant in marine life.

Why Choose Taiga Travel?

Some of the waters in Russia are overfished and crowded. They are relatively easy to reach and draw considerable amount of attention from locals as well as tourists. Unfortunately, fishing in these spots isn’t as ideal. If you’re traveling to Russia, you want the best fishing experience. Thankfully, there are other places that aren’t popular amongst most tourists and are relatively unspoiled. These regions are hard to access sometimes, but they can offer the best fishing experience of your life.

Our fishing tours take you to beautiful destinations where you can fish peacefully while enjoying the clean air and serene environment.
