Varzina River

Freshwater Russia: Varzina River

August 11/2018

Finally burning heat of Kola fell back and let us enjoy all the advantages of salmon fishing! During the whole week weather was cloudy and chilly. Since 04.08 till 11.08 Cliffhanger Lodge on Varzina river received a group of very experienced fishermen from Finland. It has been said that work goes as a swing under the masterís hand! Guests bindingly and expertly addressed the issue of low water. By trial and error they found the right flies and were rewarded with great number of bites. The most working fly was Surf Board made on white foam with silver flash body. Sunray Shadow was also very productive. This week fish was again between 5-8 kilos, 6 salmon was over 90cm. Total fishing results of the week pleased not only with sizes but also with number: 96 salmon! Great result for this time of the season.
Water level stays very low, water temperature reached 14C by the end of the week. Looking forward to meeting the next group of guests and hope to get great results again!
