The World's Best Trout Fishing
2019 The Best of Kamchatka
*Flights are from Anchorage, AK to Petropavlovsk July 22nd, and July 29th
Joe Rotter and Shan Sedgwick from Red's Fly Shop personally hosted our first trip to Russia together as a team in 2018. We learned the in's and out's of the travel process, camp details, and of course the fishing which has been said to be the "World's Best Rainbow Trout Fishing". This is a wonderful opportunity to travel with a highly experienced angler and fly fishing mentor. During this week of July the goal is target trophy Rainbows on mouse patterns and streamers. We will certainly spend time using Trout Spey tackle in addition to traditional single hand rods. You can leave your egg patterns at home! We have chosen the Ozernaya River Camp because of its reputation and straightforward logistics.
How Do We Get There?
Flights will connect to from Anchorage, Alaska to Petropavlovsk, Kamchatka on Yakutia Air and will be available to purchase and confirm in November/December 2017. The flight from Anchorage to Petro departs at 7:30 am (AK Time), so anglers will need to be in Anchorage the night before. The flight is +/- 4.5 hours.
Once on the ground in Petro, we'll be picked up for a 3 hour van ride to meet our Mi-8 helicopter. We'll fly, land for fuel, and then fly directly to the Ozernaya River Camp and your home for a week of the world's best Rainbow Trout Fishing! We plan to get out fishing that afternoon after we unpack.
On departure day we'll travel from camp to Petro, and fly back to Anchorage and connect with your flight home all in one day. No overnights are required on the return trip.
