Varzina River

Freshwater Russia: Varzina River

July 2020

First week of new season at Cliffhanger Lodge went off a storm. Stars were aligned: great conditions of water level; water temperature varies between +13C-+14,5C; weather was safely comfortable, except one day, when there was a strong south wind. Judging by number of catchings and final results, there were enough fish in the river. 8 guests caught 121 Atlantic salmon. Among them 2 samples were over 1 meter (100cm and 104cm), 6 samples over 9kg (94cm-97cm), one third of catchings were grilse, the rest were salmon of 5-8 kilos. Surprisingly on the 8th of July a kelt of 90cm in length was caught on Finnpool. It seems that this fish loves Varzina more than others, if it decided to stay in it for so long. The most productive fly was an outstanding Golden Killer. Summing up, let's say that fishing gave everyone a treat.
