Scientists know Rainbow Trout developed on the Kamchatka Peninsula before migrating eastward to Alaska and the Pacific Northwest.

The Rainbows of Kamchatka are fortunate compared with their Alaskan brethren. Being further south with warmer weather patterns allows for a significantly larger biomass.  This food-rich aquatic environment has created a fishing mecca.  After we conducted stream samples on over 30+ rivers on Kamchatka we realized the daily insect hatches of mayflies, caddis and innumerable types of stoneflies keep these plump fish looking to the surface for food.  Golden and black stone flies, a mayfly population that is diverse and extraordinarily dense, spring and fall Beatis, Green Drakes and Pale Morning Duns name just a few.  This bug factor in conjunction with a huge salmon population accounts for the large numbers of Rainbows.

The most often asked question is "How big are the fish?"

The average Rainbow is close to 21-inches and 4 pounds, with many exceeding 24-inches and 6 pounds.  In recent seasons several over the 30-inch mark were landed.  Rainbow sizes like this are a true treasure and testament that these fish populations are exceedingly healthy.

The styles of fishing we use vary as greatly as the types of fish we catch.

At times swinging a streamer is the most productive method, but often a mouse pattern will out-produce all other techniques. One thing is certain; there is no need for heavy sink tips or leaded flies.  Consider that both of our rivers see less angling pressure in a season than virtually any quality Rainbow stream in Alaska will see on a normal weekend.  You will not catch fish missing facial parts nor will fish behave as if they were caught earlier in the day.  The Rainbows of Kamchatka are aggressive, often chasing your mouse patterns right to your feet.  There is absolutely no need to fish plastic beads. Our entire season we fish with real flies, Mouse patterns, streamers and dries on floating lines with heavy leaders.

Each day on the Ozernaya River you and your guide have over 15 jet-boatable miles of Rainbow infested water to enjoy. 

Floating the Two Yurt River between stationary lodges you will fish arguably some of the world’s most beautiful river miles. Whether at Two Yurt or the Ozernaya our style of fishing is wading-oriented, although other types can be easily accommodated. If you do not feel comfortable wade fishing, you can easily and successfully enjoy angling from the boat

Our fishing program is designed with conservation for the future in mind.  We practice strict catch and release for all Rainbow Trout.
