Salmon Junkies have managed to get some of the most attractive and enjoyable salmon fishing on the Kola Peninsula.
Salmon Junkies now have access to two of Varzuga’s most popular and fantastic fishing programs – The charming Kitsa tributary and the program that combine the best from Varzugas watershed – The Pana / Middle Varzuga program
Join Salmon Junkies in our new Varzuga Watershed program, and believe us when we say that you can learn more about Atlantic salmon fishing in a single week on Varzuga and Kitsa than you will in a lifetime fishing Norwegian or Scottish rivers.
Pana is a tributary of the famous Varzuga River. It is a medium sized river, 30 to 65 metres wide with numerous fast runs and rocky parts that are awesome holding spots. There are also slower and deeper parts, where some of the larger fish tend to hold. Near the camp there is plenty of good fly fishing water. A much smaller river, the Indel, runs into the Pana near the camp and provides spawning grounds for the salmon. Not all of the pools have been ‘discovered’ yet, and this small river provides great fishing in June, when the run is at its peak.
Pana is a very versatile beat on the Varzuga system accommodating the wishes and dreams of all anglers, whether fishing single or double handed rods.
The middle beat of Varzuga has over 10 km of prime fly fishing water with more than thirty named pools. There is both fast water in places like Clarke's Corner and the deep pools like Fortress running into wide, smooth bottomed stretches such as Peartiha and down around both sides of the island. This is some of the finest water Varzuga has to offer. There is plenty of superb fishing water for everyone. Classic ‘text’ ´book salmon fishing water, almost like someone had chosen to place all the best pools in one single river!
A trip to Middle Varzuga is at the top of any salmon fishing experience with incredible catch numbers and fishing that offers the best this wonderful sport has to offer for all who visit.
The gorgeous Kitsa River is a different kind of river than Varzuga. It is smaller and running through dense Russian taiga pine forest on its way to the White Sea. It is indeed one of the most charming rivers on Kola, flowing from large inland lakes, which provides for relatively stable water levels all season, much like the Umba River in fact. Most pools are within a short walking distance from the Kitsa camp. Kitsa offers easy wading and superb fly water along its entire course.
Kitsa holds the record not only for the total number of fish landed in a single week, but also the highest average catch per rod per week on Russia's entire Kola Peninsula!
Please note that the price is only half of normal and it will be “first to the mill” . Moreover, for coming seasons you will have the first right of refusal.
Kitsa 18/6 – 25/6 – 10 rods – Euro 3400 per rod
Kitsa 25/6 – 2/7 – 10 rods – Euro 3400 per rod
Pana/M. Varzuga 25/6 – 2/7 (3 days each camp) – 10 rods - Euro 3400 per rod.
