In such weather fish are less active in the morning with their activity gradually growing as the day moves on, reaching its peak late in the evening.

In this weather fish bites are overall very promising, but the best time is around late morning and early evening.

As the weather gets colder, it’s better to go fishing around midday, when the water temperature is warmer.

Welcome to the vast expanses of Northern Mongolia! Here, surrounded by low mountains, we can visit one of the deepest rivers that feed Baikal — the Selenge. Many rare birds live along the banks of this mighty river, herds of sheep and horses graze peacefully. You can also notice the yurts of nomads, surrounded with enclosures housing two-humped camels. The Selenge mostly flows across a flat land, first becoming narrower and then turning into hollow-like expansions, where it divides into channels and forms multiple islands. The banks, overgrown with sparse forests, are mostly clay and sandy, but pebbled areas are also often found. The river has a fairly fast current and relatively shallow depth. The extremely continental climate holds the river in an icy embrace from November to April. In September, snow sometimes falls at night and melts during the day. It is here that the largest fish of the salmon family is found — Taimen, the king of all salmon, sometimes reaching a weight of over 132 pounds (60 kilograms). Lenok, Baikal Omul, Humpback Whitefish and Siberian Grayling can also be found here in abundance. Although the Selenge is not an easy place for fishing, it’s incredibly interesting!

Starting points

Tom Gal

Tom Gal

There is a place on the eastern bank surrounded by two narrow distributaries of the river. The locals call the encampment Tom Gal, which means ‘Big Fire” in Mongolian. Apparently, the local waters teem with fish and have long been a favorite spot of the locals. This small pebbled open space is surrounded by a sparse forest. There is a large fire pit in the center of the clearing. People obviously come here often. This quiet and peaceful place literally invites you to sit down by the fire, warm up, and rest, watching the flow of the river and enjoying the sounds of nature after a good catch.

Nomadic Camp

Nomadic Camp

On Selenge’s western bank, you can witness the traditional life of local nomadic tribes. Not far away from the river, several frame yurts stand covered with snow-white felt. Around them, life is in full swing: horses neigh and snort, dogs bark, voices ring. Behind a small fence, several two-humped camels are standing calmly, a flock of sheep is grazing freely in the distance, and a steppe eagle is soaring in the sky. This enjoyable glimpse of a traditional lifestyle will be a great addition to your main goal here — fishing!

Ancient Hitching Post

Ancient Hitching Post

At the foot of the hill on the western bank of the Selenge, where during some dry summers it was possible to cross the river on horseback, one can find ritual hitching posts — serge. These three-section carved wooden pillars were once a sign that this land had an owner, and were associated with the cult of the horse. Their upper part was intended for celestial horses, the middle one — for human ones, and the lower one — for the horses of the underworld. Here you will find many thousand-year-old ritual structures. Embrace the magic of these places and who knows, maybe the ancient spirits will grant you good luck in your hunt for the trophy Taimen!

Taimen Island

Taimen Island

This large pebbled island in the middle of the river has been a favorite spot, for locals and visiting anglers alike, to anchor their boats. Here you can launch your favorite kayak and finally fish from the water. The center of the island is overgrown with low dense willows, among which several taller trees grow. The locals know that this place is frequented by the king of all salmon, incredible and huge — His Majesty The Taimen. And the successful catches of many anglers only confirm this knowledge!
