It is spring time at the Kola Peninsula. The new fishing season is just around the corner at the fabulous River Umba.

I have begun packing my gear for three hectic spring weeks under the midnight sun and I am looking forward to give all our guests a warm welcome – newcomers as well as veterans. I will be heading for Murmansk on Friday the 23rd and during the weekend our first team of expectant salmon fishermen will arrive. Our great Russian staff is already working hard to make everything ready for you both at the beautiful lodge and along the magic river. We have some of the most experienced guides at the peninsula and they are all eager to make your week an unique and unforgettable experience .

We expect that salmon of all sizes are waiting for your flies in all the fantastic and challenging pools. Usually we see 20 + lbs caught and released every week.

So tight lines to all salmon junkies. We are looking forward to see you in action.
