The team undertook a 4-week exploratory fishing expedition to the Taymyr Peninsula in 2019. We wanted to know whether there was good fishing to be had there, and whether we should start organising trips to this extremely remote and hard to access destination. What we found was stunning: never-before fished rivers. Huge fish. Total isolation. Indeed, most of the rivers we found had probably never been explored at all before us. Stay tuned as we prepare to bring clients there from 2021 onwards.
The Fishing Exploration team will soon be organizing custom-made fishing expeditions to the Taymyr Peninsula. The fishing here is as remote as it gets. This is true exploration. There will be times where we will be going to waters where not even our team has fished before - let alone anyone!
The fish Expect to be mainly fishing for arctic char, siberian trout, grayling and occasionally (depending on the river) Taimen!
The fishing locations In the Taymyr peninsula everything happens by helicopter. There are two initial location options: Anabar Plateau, or Lake Taymyr. The Anabar Plateau is a little further south, but features the excellent Taimen fishing we mentioned before. It is just as remote and is best explored with a 1-week river descent by raft. Lake Taymyr is much further up north. The rivers that lead into it are the ones worth exploring. When adventuring up these untouched rivers, you may come across Mammoth remains - we were lucky enough to find some! Fishing there is almost only for large Arctic Char.
Where will you be staying? The nature of our expeditions is that they are custom. If you have a particular request, we can most likely accommodate for it. That being said, we can only do a Wild format for the taymyr peninsula, as there is no lodge infrastructure available in the entire peninsula.
Wild You will be staying in comfortable tents each night, and every morning you will board your rafts and go downstream to fish where you think is best. Guides will accompany us throughout the trip and will be fishing experts to help you out. Food will be provided.
