  LOWER RIVER  
EXPEDITION 

 

 

A fly fishing trip designed for those of us who don’t mind a bit of roughing it… in style.

This trip explores the lower stretch of the taimen sanctuary for seven amazing days.  The river is a bit bigger on the lower stretch with a couple of tributaries coming in from the north.  It frequently braids up offering many sections with a small stream feel.  This is remote country flowing through a national park.  It is very common to hear elk bugling and wolves howling in the evening.  The fly fishing for taimen, trout, lenok and pike is outstanding.  

As we float through the remote lower river canyon, we stay in tipi camps.  Each Nordic tipi accommodates two cots and offers plenty of room to stand inside. Breakfast and dinner are served in a spacious, insulated wall tent with a wood-burning stove. All the camps are super comfortable.  Every day while we are fishing a new stretch of river, the camp staff moves all our equipment and camp gear downstream with very large rafts.  You will be impressed by the spirit and efficiency of the Mongolian navy!

As with all trips:

We meet you at the airport upon arrival in Mongolia and take it from there.  You’ll enjoy an adventure-filled 4×4 journey across the Mongolian steppe to reach the river, then seven memorable days exploring this incredibly beautiful stretch of the river before returning to the capital and home. 

Anglers enjoy fishing from comfortable ClackaCraft drift boats. We fish new water every day.  When guests arrive at each evening’s camp, the professional staff has your bags waiting, beds made, fires lit, and dinner prepared in the spacious dining tent. It’s luxury in the wilderness! 

You can see photos and read more about the meals and camps here.

Only international anglers holding a fishing permit allocated through Mongolia River Outfitters may legally fish this river. Our exclusive management agreement requires catch-and-release, fly-fishing only with single, barbless hooks.

Fantastic trip. From beginning to end, everything was first class. Am already planning my return trip!”
