TAIMEN FISHING ADVENTUREFishing Tour
OverviewOur Taimen Fishing Tour will cover the best fishing spots on the Khug, Shishget, Sharga, Tengis and Delgermurun rivers in northern Mongolia. These rivers are every fisherman’s dream. They are clear and easy to wade – even the banks are easy walking – and range in size from 40 to 120 feet wide. It is hard to imagine that a fish as large as the Taimen can live in these waters.
Taimens are the world's most prominent member of the Salmonid Family, which encompasses all trout, char, salmon, grayling, and whitefish species. These ancient fish average from 30-40 inches in length, with some reaching 60-plus inches. Native to Central Asia, the Taimen has called the high desert of Mongolia home for thousands of years. These fantastic, predatory fish have only become exposed and prominent in the last few decades.
The Fishing season in Mongolia is from 15th June to 15th October. Our tour is open during fishing season. Water conditions in Mongolia are generally relatively stable. However, if our rivers' headwaters receive heavy rain, off-color water conditions are possible. In the past, we have found that fishing is still possible in off-color conditions and that the rivers generally clear quickly. And also this is why we go to four different river locations for fishing. If one or two destinations have muddy water conditions, we will stay in the other two to continue fishing.
Fishing weeks will not be canceled; refunds will not be offered if muddy water conditions occur during the season. Elite Tour Mongolia cannot be responsible for the water conditions during the fishing season. If there is high water that causes a week to be rescheduled, we will offer to reschedule you for later in the season or next year.
