Grand Varzuga 3rd week report – 2015

Salmon Junkies News / Articles


This week produced 100 salmon and quite a few between 10-14 Lbs, nevertheless it has been a tough week with water levels bumping up and down. The arrival of the very late spring and unstable and cold weather have been challenging. Its still quite cold, first 3 days,  storm with fallen trees and lots of rain and water level unusual high making it difficult getting to the fish. Water temperature is jumping between 8-10c which is also quite unusual this time of year.

Despite the unusual cold weather, storms etc 100 salmon is still pretty good, where else?

Floating line and intermediate line with fast sink with a Cascade and Redbutt attached is still the right medicine.

Please stay tuned for more reports,

All the best,
