Welcome to Kamchatka

Good afternoon! Let's get acquainted, my name is Ruslan.


If you came to this page, obviously, you are an adventurer and look for them, perhaps, in one of the most unique places on the planet - in Kamchatka!

All right, here is the great, mighty Pacific Ocean, and more than 300 volcanoes, 29 of which are active, and some of them are almost within walking distance, and many beautiful lakes, mountain rivers rich in fish.

There will be entertainment for every taste and at any time of the year.

In summer there is an opportunity to fish, both in the river and in the ocean at a depth of up to 600 meters, there is where to go rafting, there is something to visit on a quad bike or jeep. There are a lot of useful wild sources here, and you can not talk about the kinds that open from a height when flying on a paraglider or speedglider. Unique underwater world of the Pacific fascinates, whether hunting or freediving with sea lions "Steller sea lion".        

In winter, you can climb a helicopter to the top of untouched mountains and go down from there on skis or snowboard, ride a dog sled, conquer one of the volcanoes on a snowmobile, dive into a wild hot spring in the open air, walk through the forest on real hunting skis, listen to the beast, retire with nature, to feel the soul of Kamchatka, to hear her call and enticing voice.

For more than 15 years I have been actively traveling, fishing, hunting in our country and inviting you to join my team! I, with pleasure, will become for you, a guide to this unforgettable world of impressions and adventures. Join now!

Nature of the region

Volcanoes of Kamchatka

There are a lot of sights in Kamchatka, but the most important and impressive is volcanoes. There are few places on the planet where you can see so many volcanoes at the same time.
Volcanoes of Kamchatka are an unforgettable sight. There are 29 active and many extinct volcanoes that occupy about 40% of the territory of the peninsula. By active volcanoes, it is meant not only active, emitting magma, but also exhibiting fumarolic activity. In general, during the historical period there were not so many eruptions, dangerous for people's lives. Volcanoes and territories around them are constantly changing, they are all so different that it captures the spirit.

The most popular and easily accessible volcanoes :
Caldera Uzon
Vachkazhets mountain range
Sharp Tolbachik volcano
Gorely volcano
Mutnovsky volcano
Avachinsky volcano

Pacific Ocean

The southeastern coast of Kamchatka is washed by the waters of the Pacific Ocean. As is known, the Pacific Ocean is not only the largest and deepest of the five oceans of our planet, but also the most ancient ocean of the world. Its dimensions are impressive: the Pacific Ocean is almost half the World Ocean and takes up a third of our planet. The underwater world of the ocean is the richest and most diverse. There are over 850 species of algae, over 6 thousand species of mollusks, over 100 thousand species of animals, of which more than 3,5 thousand species of fish. The diversity of the underwater world is almost 50% of all living organisms of the World Ocean. However, the nature of the Pacific Ocean has not been fully studied to the present day. Every year, scientists discover new species of animals and plants.

Most popular places to visit :
Bays Tikhaya, Grotovaya, Vilyuchinskaya, Zhirova, Russkaya, Bichevinskaya, the island of Satrichkov
A fisherman in the ocean at depths of up to 70 meters is likely to catch a link, flounder, mackerel, perch, cod, pollock, salmon, as well as trophy white halibut.
On deep water (up to 600 meters), usually comes the Pacific red perch (weighing up to 15 kg), macro, stingray, trophy cod (more than 10 kg), less commonly halibut or "arrow-toothed".

The most catchy places :
Cape Nameless (depth 10-40 meters)
Starichkov Island (depth of 10-35 meters)
Cape Dangerous (depth 25-70 meters)
Buoy Rotating (depth 25-35 meters)
Deep sea dumps (depth of 150-600 meters)
Bay Bečevinskaya (depth 20-70 meters)

Lakes of Kamchatka

You can talk a lot about the beauty of local lakes, while distinguishing from all stands, perhaps, the Kuril Lake.
This place needs to be seen with my own eyes.
Kuril Lake is a large caldera, inside of which there is a crater lake in the southern part of the Kamchatka Peninsula, in the territory of the South Kamchatka Federal Wildlife Refuge.
An area of about 77 square kilometers (the third largest of all the lakes of Kamchatka and the second among the freshwater lakes, second only to the Kronotsky lake), the average depth of 195 m, a maximum depth of 316 m. Meals snow and rain. On the north-eastern shore is the volcano Ilyinskaya hill. On the lake are several islands, the largest of which Samang (0.66 km²), Chayachy, Heart, Low and Clay. In the south, the cape Tugumynk flows into the lake, and Pulomink cape in the northwest. On the shore of the bay Tyoplya in the east of the lake there are outcrops of mineral hot waters. The shores of the lake are pebbly beaches, on which hills rise.
Several rivers and streams flow into the lake: Etamynk, Khakytsin, Vychenkia, Kirushutk. The Ozernaya River flows into the Sea of Okhotsk in the west.
The lake is the most significant spawning ground of sockeye salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka Walbaum) in Eurasia (and, possibly, in the world). The observation station of the salmon entering the lake and monitoring its fry is occupied by the observation station TINRO, which is located on the western shore of the lake. On the shores of the lake you can often meet a brown bear (a permanent livestock on the shores reaches 200 or more individuals).
The territory of the South Kamchatka Federal Wildlife Refuge, as well as the Kronotsky State Reserve, is included in the UNESCO Natural Heritage List in 1996 as part of Kamchatka Volcanoes.

Rivers of Kamchatka

There are more than 14 thousand rivers and streams in Kamchatka, of which the greater part has a length of up to 10 km and only 105 - more than 100 km. The Kamchatka River (758 km) and the Penzhina River (713 km) are sharply distinguished by their size. The average density of the hydrosystem is 0.77 km ², but there are areas with a density of less than 0.6 km². Despite the insignificant length, the rivers of Kamchatka are exceptionally deep-watered. The average long-term runoff on the peninsula has some of the highest values ​​not only in the Far East, but also in the country in general. It is 1000 km³. The food among the Kamchatka rivers is mixed: they feed on groundwater by 55 to 56%, meltwater gives 35-40%, rains give 10%.
Due to the rapid flow and the absence of permafrost, almost all Kamchatka rivers in winter are partially or completely open.

Popular rivers for rafting and fishing -
The Bystraya River (Bystrinsky District, 134 km)
The river Zhupanov (150 km, a wild, inaccessible river, a helicopter ride)
The Bystraya River (Bol'sheretsky District, 275 km)
Opala River (160 km)

For fishing -
The Paratunka River (41 km)
The Plotnikov River (134 km)
The Bolshaya River (275 km)
The Avacha River (122 km)
The Bystraya River (Bol'sheretsky District, 275 km)

I recommend to visit

Easily accessible natural springs - Paratunka (thermal water)
Malki (mud puddles)
Ozerki (radon sources)
Halaktyrsky beach - an endless beautiful beach with black volcanic sand
Fish market at 6 km., or at the Komsomolskaya square

Coho salmon hunting

Sviridov Alexander Moscow (August 2019)  
After fishing trips to the lower and middle Volga, where there are really a lot of fish, I wanted something more exotic. Pike, common carp, pike perch and catfish also inhabit our Iriklinsky reservoir. And somewhere far in the east of our vast country there is Kamchatka, the edge of a thousand rivers, volcanoes, bears and, of course, strong fish of the salmon family. And so, at baptism, having bathed in the ice-hole, sitting in the bathhouse, my friends realized that it was time to visit this wonderful land. The choice fell on fishing for coho salmon - we are going at the end of August.
In February, Moscow-Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky tickets were bought at a very nice price. I wanted to incorporate more fishing and the atmosphere of wildlife of this region. At first they thought to opt for rafting along one of the many rivers, but I did not want to miss the coho salmon. Still, the most fishing place proposed is the Bolshaya River. We started the search for suitable offers. There are many offers in Chavyche suitable for coho salmon - less. Found Ruslana. He promptly responded, and correspondence began on WhatsApp. During the correspondence, we already had a clear idea of ​​how our tour for coho salmon and one day fishing for Kamchatka crab would go. Yes, the crab is another symbol of Kamchatka, where you can still catch it, if not there.
And then came August. Recent clarifications, I ordered a rental spinning, exchanged phones with a transfer, sent scans of passports for licenses. Everyone flew out. Elizovo. We got luggage, met with the second half of the group (they traveled through Novosibirsk), now our team is assembled. We load into a minibus, on the way we call for strong tea, where without it, and after 250 km of a different road we are on the river.
We say hello, load into boats, and with two walks we leave to the place where our camp will be from Monday to Friday - our house. I must say that there will be two teams in the camp: the first - there are four of us, the second - a family of three, as well as two guides Ruslan, Alexei and culinary master Olga.
After less than a kilometer, we have already seen the local owner - this gives the trip the desired flavor. In place, Ruslan and Alexei quickly set up camp, part of the team was resting, and the most impatient ones had already caught pink salmon, which means that the famous Kamchatka five-minute clock will be on the table. We have dinner, get to know each other and sleep. Tomorrow, we will consider the first day of fishing in coho salmon.
The first day.
Rise at 5:00, breakfast and Ruslan, the two of us are driven to the coveted hole, where, perhaps, we will catch coho salmon. A deaf hook happened with a friend the night before and so as not to make mistakes in the morning I suggested he immediately put in a litter that was not verified in these places to examine the local backwater, which later turned out to be one of the most catchy, and with the words: “Here, keep the shitty one!” - I give him mine.
And what can I say, as it happens, in a row, almost every cast takes 5 coho salmon, and I take one. How do you like that ?! I would have been happy for a friend, but I had become a wicked fisherman. A friend went on a catch-and-go fishing trip, but I still couldn’t take a second one that day. The second group of our team caught one coho salmon, right at the camp, but the largest specimen. During the day, everyone wound their hands with pink salmon. When nursing during the course, the pink salmon male is able to deliver a vivid impression to the fisherman.
Second day.
I remember badly, there was no coho salmon, I drank tea, local hamsters were designated here and there. The weather was different: from hot to foggy))).
Day Three
In the morning we hit the coveted hole. And I have two good-sized coho salads, well, that’s why my bad one let me go. Even Ruslan perked up, to see yesterday I complained to him about the difficult fate of a fisherman waiting for coho salmon to leave. The guys also caught coho salmon - the morning was a success. All day a little team caught this strong fish. And the guys from the other team see picked up a key to him.
Our guides have chosen a good parking spot. It was possible to estimate by the number of boats from neighboring bases who wanted to go fishing at our camp. They landed on our island and also successfully fished. That day I stood until dark and still pulled out two silver fish, when everyone was already having dinner. Coho went.
The fourth day, the final, on the river Bolshaya.
Rise at 5:00. But not everyone stood up. The guys could not part for a long time, since that evening was the last on this place and today we only have a duck-off, and fees. We went fishing at the camp together. Poklevka ... and away we go! In 15-20 minutes my license was closed - five silvery beauties lay on the shore. The partner also has a good result. Here, from the noise of fighting with salmon, the entire camp is already on its feet. Everyone has the joy of fighting with fish. Go fishing "caught-let go" did not work out completely, namely: two fish left with a bait one after another.
At first I thought that the cord had worn out, tied it up, unwinding about 10 meters. Then the nibble subsided, possibly due to a change in spinners (there were none like that) and we went to pack on the road. It was necessary to put all things together and cut the fish. Salting it, we took it with us. In the remaining time after the fees, before the arrival of the transfer, we went to catch more. He pulled out one small one, and on the next two bites there was a cliff. Then, already on the way to Petropavlovsk, I remembered that I tightened the clutch a little more and this affected.
Our team was taken by the first walker. The guides returned to assemble the camp. The river part of fishing is over. Tomorrow we have crabs in Avacha Bay.
On coho salmon, I’ll say that everything worked out perfectly. This is the right strategy: we took four days out of five for fishing, the best bite was on the last day. Choosing Ruslan, we didn’t miss it, a pleasant person in communication, ensured both good fishing and comfortable life, I did not forget to take photos and videos with trophies of clients. It is felt that they are a good team with guide Alexei. Special thanks to the culinary master - he fulfilled all our whims and surprised me with a variety of dishes.

Alekperov Andrey Moscow (August 2019)  
A small report on weekly fishing in the company of Ruslan - the organizer and curator of all our Wishlist in Kamchatka. I found the option right here on the site, having reinforced the info from instagram, I decided to entrust the trip to him and did not fail, for which I thank him separately.
I took my not-so-young parents to fishing, who promised an unforgettable experience of fishing and Kamchatka. Acquaintance-warm-up began from the Bystraya river, where we were on the first day and where my first sockeye salmon with caviar was caught.
Then there were crabs in Avacha Bay in the company of our Chinese brothers, who, despite their small growth, “cracked” a large half of the caught and cooked crabs.
Then there were unforgettable 5 days on the Bolshaya River (250 km from Petropavlovsk) in the company of 4 more guys in the camp. I want to express my gratitude to Ruslan and guide Alexei for the thoughtful organization of the departure process and of course for the opportunity to break away in full coho salmon. They also managed to catch pink salmon, chum salmon, char, mikizu, kunju. Mostly Blue-Fox type turntables worked. Thanks again!

Akhmatova Laysan, Republic of Bashkortostan (August 2019)  
Kamchatka is the dream of every fisherman. You can’t come to the Kamchatka Territory and not enjoy fishing. Gambling fishermen are even people like me who have never before held a fishing rod in their hands. Fall in love with fishing, just impossible! My husband and I planned about fishing earlier. We got acquainted with all the reviews and recommendations, our choice was on Ruslan). Phoned, agreed on a date and time. Ruslan was in an excellent mood, with all the necessary equipment, to pick us up early in the morning, on the day agreed upon in advance by us. We went to the river, which flows into the Bering Sea. The river is interesting for fishing, especially in July and August, when pink salmon, chum salmon, and coho salmon rise. Bought a license and on the road in search of fish. Despite the light drizzle, the views of nature were fascinating, and the air, in the absence of any production throughout Kamchatka, was intoxicating without medicine)). The first bite was not immediately, at first the fish constantly broke off the hook and my husband and I were even a little upset. But, thanks to Ruslan and his professionalism (he pointed out a mistake), fish began to be caught. It is impossible to describe our emotions and joys experienced from the first salmon caught in your life. We recommend Ruslana to all friends and acquaintances! Be sure to use his service again! The plans of fishing for crab). Definitely only with Ruslan! Thank you Ruslan! For the warm welcome and your professionalism.

Andrei, St. Petersburg (May 2018)
With Ruslan went on a boat trip along the bay and catch crabs. It was interesting not only to look at the process, but also directly participate in it.
We were lucky to open the season 2018 first and honestly we did not think that the catch would be so significant. For 2.5-3 hours leisurely fishing was produced MUCH crab snow crab. After unloading, the catch was cooked and the most pleasant moment began, its eating)). Part of the ready crab, by the way, went to St. Petersburg.
I can recommend Ruslan, as a person of an experienced, responsible and knowledgeable business. The level of organization is on top!

Daria, Moscow (September 2017)
My name is Daria, I'm 12 years old.
My dad and I flew from Moscow to Kamchatka on his work. The
Even at home he said that we will definitely go to the ocean to someone else. So it turned out, we swam twice in the ocean, but most of all I liked fishing for a crab. The
It was very tasty, but to eat it we first caught it, Uncle Ruslan ruled the boat and Dad set and got the traps. Once the pope took out a whole bunch of crab and there were still sea stars and snails. We let out the stars and small crabs too. Uncle Ruslan said that if we do not let them go they will be offended and will not be caught any more. The
Then we went ashore and started building a bonfire to cook crabs. They quickly began to boil and were very red. The
I used to eat crabs, but these were delicious, probably because they are fresh. The
While we cooked them I took a walk along the edge of the river, it's very beautiful there, near a rock, a bunch of birds and various gulls. We also ate snails, they got to us several times, they are delicious too. The
I really enjoyed our trip, the sea was calm and I learned to catch crabs. I told the class how we caught it, now everyone envies me. No one has such photos with terrible crabs. The
When my dad still goes to Kamchatka, I will definitely go too, I want to go somewhere else, it's very interesting, we have no such place in Moscow.
