The Taimen Fly-Fishing Experience
Two very unique taimen float trips – or a combination of both – covering hundreds of kilometers of a great fly-fishing river. All departures are limited to very small groups of four or six anglers. We fish new water daily and stay in wonderful stream-side camps every night. Every stretch of river rests for long periods between trips.
We’ve been fly fishing in Mongolia for over thirty years. We are floating these rivers June – October. Taimen fishing is great any of these months that fit your schedule. No one can control the weather or the fish, but we do have things set-up so that we are fishing the right river at the right time. You can see photos and read about our taimen camps here.
A highly experienced team of private cooks, camp staff, and guides supports every trip. While we’re fishing, the camp staff transport all of our gear to the next camp. Depending upon the trip and the season, these camps are either Nordic tipi camps or traditional Mongolian ger camps. Every evening, when you drift into the next stream-side taimen camp, your bags are waiting, the bed is made and the shower water is hot. Cocktails at sunset with dinner to follow. After a fun night in a super comfortable camp, it’s up in the morning to go explore entirely new waters. After breakfast we just grab our fly rods, walk about twenty steps to the river, jump into a boat with our guide, and head downstream.
We work hard to protect this river. All fishing is catch-and-release, fly-fishing only with single, barbless hooks. Just like taimen, we like our rivers quiet and natural. Local communities consider this river to be holy. Foreigners cannot access most of this watershed without special national government permission. To make certain angling is well-managed to promote conservation and to properly benefit communities, Fish Mongolia is exclusively responsible for all international angling. No international angler may legally access this river without a permit secured through Fish Mongolia. You can read more on our conservation page.
