Kamchatka stirs the imagination with thoughts giant Rainbow Trout, huge bears, active volcanos, spewing geysers, and flying in helicopters. Ouzel Expeditions introduced using helicopters to fish Kamchatka’s wonderful rivers 27 years ago. Imagine eating great Russian meals cooked by Ouzel’s excellent Russian staff. Sitting around the campfires in the evenings with the stars blazing, cold foggy mornings drinking hot coffee around the fire and of course catching some of the biggest rainbow trout in the world! The whole Kamchatka experience is out out of site!
The Kamchatka Peninsula is about the size of California. It’s a fairly road less area. One road goes from Petropavlovsk in the south, north to the Kamchatka River. Anther road goes south from Petro, as we call it. So we use helicopters to access Kamchatka’s vast wilderness.
The Rainbow Trout were first identified in Kamchatka. Oncorhynchus Mykiss is their last name in English. This happened long before the United States was established. Kamchatka has cold winters and hot summers. Today it’s world renowned for it’s Rainbow Trout fishing.
