FISHING IN MONGOLIA
FOR THE FISHERMAN IN MONGOLIA
PLACES FOR FISHING IN MONGOLIA
espite its landlocked status, Mongolia's many deep water lakes and rivers are teeming with fish, particularly during September and October. Besides
taimen, a distant relative of the Atlantic salmon, anglers vie for lenok (a type of trout), grayling and pike, among others.
Top places to fish include the Selenge river near the
Russian - Mongolian border, the Chuluut river and Terkhiin Tsagaan Nuur (or Great White Lake) in Arkhangai, the Kharaa river in Darkhan -Uul and the Orkhon river in Overkhangai.
Khuvsgol offers some of the country's best fishing, especially at Lake Khuvsgol, on the Shiishigt,
Egiin, Delger Moron and Ureen rivers and at the point where the Chuluut,
Selenge, Delger Moron, Bugsei and Ider rivers converge.
In September and October this is one of the
best fishing spots in the country.
A fisherman should take note of catch-and-release rules, particularly for the dwindling taimen population, and be sure to buy fishing permits in the
local town before hitting the water.
