View of River at Sunset

Kapushka River

The Kapushka is the perfect Kamchatka river for the fly fisherman who loves wading and fishing.  The rainbow average 24 to 26 inches here and are very heavy.  You will spend little time in the raft.  You can wade down the entire river if you please.   The mousing is excellent. It’s amazing how large rainbows can hold in such shallow places. The salmon spawing beds are where they lie. It’s great fun to fish this river. It remains crystal clear even in storms. Below you can see Elaine Taylor caught a 32 1/2 inch Rainbow here in 2015.  We’ve caught many Rainbows over 30 inches here. The views are excellent with mountains surrounding you. The Kapushka River has excellent fishing for Khundza or East Siberian Char and a strong Silver run!
