FLY FISHING – RUSSIA, UMBA
Fly fishing for salmon on Umba River in Russia. Fishmaster will arrange a hosted fly fishing trip to the Umba on 10th-17th October 2022. Jouni Rauha works as a host for this fly fishing trip.
The scenic Umba River flows out of Kanozero Lake and down into the White Sea. It is considered one of the finest rivers in the world for Atlantic Salmon. The fishing season for Atlantic Salmon starts as soon as the river is open from ice (usually in late May) and continues through to October.
The lodge’s riverbank location allows guests access to excellent Umba fishing spots. Fly fishing is from boat and by wading. Several of these fishing spots are within 10 minutes of the lodge, including Brad’s Pool and the Doctor’s Pool on the lodge side, the Bar, the Home Pool or Pig Island pools are located very close to the lodge. We have booked all rods for our Fishmaster group of 8 persons. Daily fishing hours in October are from 9.00 until 18:00. Lunch at the lodge at 13:00. All salmon must be released.
Good flies for the Umba are for example Green Highlander, Red Butt, Silver Doctor, Thunder & Lightning, Black Francis, Cascade and Billy Butt.
FLY FISHING TACKLE
For fly fishing for salmon on the Umba we recommend 12-15′ feet double handed rods for lines 8-10 and suitable fly reels with good quality brakes. Sink tip or intermediate shooting heads are most used fly lines but please bring with also sinking shooting heads for possible high water conditions.
The Umba Lodge is simply the most comfortable and attractive timber lodge on the Kola Peninsula. This very comfortable lodge was built by local craftsmen using locally-grown timber.
