I manage the Kharlovka and East Litza rivers on the Kola...many of you are familiar with the postings of Per Stadigh our consultant. Our season has started of in an outstanding manner with fish averaging 20lbs and a top fish of 39lbs taken by Swedish angler Michael Janssen.

We are engaging in a radio tagging project this year to ascertain how our multi-sea winter fish use the Kharlovka system. As an associated issue I am looking for up to 8 fit and competent volunteers to assist me in exploring the Upper Kharlovka in August this year.

We know that 70% of our fish go through Kharlovka falls and we have a myriad of unexplored river to evaluate. Our brief test fishing at the end of last season produced numerous fish including a 40 pounder. Volunteers will stay at Kharlovka Lodge and will have access to all facilities and fishing. The operation is helicopter supported.

I require a contribution of $1500 US and a short fishing resume. This opportunity is not for beginners but for exploration minded experienced steelhead/salmon anglers. It is a one off and will not re-occur.

Please mail me if interested.

Tight Lines !

This Weeks Report

13 June 2002
Kharlovka and Eastern Litza have now sprung into action. Almost overnight large runs of Salmon have been entering both rivers and as a consequence this weeks full compliment of 12 rods have all tasted success. On Sunday Eastern Litza rods had a memorable day. Father and son team, Simon and Rob Chislett spent most of the day fishing at Tentpool and landed 5 fish up to 19lbs. After losing a huge fish estimated at over 35lbs in Spawning pool, Mike Fletcher landed one exactly that weight in lower Tentpool and Julian Sterck followed 10 minutes later catching one of 28lbs from the same spot. Julian hadn't finished though. On his visit to Kharlovka waterfalls the next day he landed one of 33lbs which was covered in sealice. Niclas Ahlberg took another massive fish out of Homepool which means we have now caught a total of 7 fish over the 30lb mark in under 2 weeks fishing. Mikael Frodin has proved that Litza has fish throughout its entire system by catching 5 from Litza waterfalls on Monday. He had to work hard for it though as an 850 grain shooting head had to be used to prise them off the bottom. As you can see we are still using fairly heavy sunk lines with large flies. The fly pattern doesn't seem to matter too much at the moment, but Phatagorva and Templedog are the favorites. We have had some fairly decent weather this week so far, with the midday air temperature at about 10 degrees and the water at a perfect 8 degrees. There is an ongoing battle with an upstream wind, but it hasn't got the ferocity of last week. The water levels on both rivers are settling down due to the lessening snowmelt, but perfect fishing height right down to the sea pools. We have a fantastic total of 68 for the first 3 days with hopefully more of the same to come.
