Tours to Kyrgyzstan
Kyrgyzstan, with its mountain rivers, is an excellent place for those who live for fishing. Our rivers are full of various species of fish, such as amudarya trout (salmo trutta oxianus kessler), osman (diptychus maculatus berg), and rainbow trout (salmo gairdneri rich). Whether you are a skillful fisherman or not, you will have an unforgettable fishing experience on the mountain rivers of the Tien Shan. Our firm can organize fishing tours on the following rivers of Kyrgyzstan.
The Red RiverDuration: 1-2 days
Season: Spring, Autumn
One of most picturesque areas of unspoiled wild beauty in the Chui Valley, the Red River, is located 60km from Bishkek. The Red River originates as several springs located near Tokmak, and intricately winds among reeds and brush, with an infinite number of magnificent spots ideal for fishing. Rainbow trout (Salmo gairdneri Rich) is the predominant specie in the river, usually of 20 - 25 cm (8 - 10 inches) length or larger, and with a weight of 1-2 kg (2-4 pounds). The largest trout ever caught on the river was 7 kg (15 pounds).
Susamyr RiverDuration: 2-3 days
Season: 15 April - 15 June
The Susamyr River is 80km long, originating in the Ala Bel Pass (3,184m) and proceeding down the Susamyr Valley in order to merge with the Western Karakol River to become the Kekemeren River.
Diptychus maculatus Berg, its local name being Osman, is a predominant fish specie. It is a typical inhabitant of the Alpine rivers of the Tien-Shan. Osman only live in rivers above 1,500m.
Osman eat algae and the larvae of water and flying insects. Its maximum size is 50cm, and weighs up to 3 kg.
Kekemeren RiverDuration: 3-4 days
Season: April 15 - June 15
The Kekemeren River is formed by the confluence of the Susamyr and Western Karakol Rivers, and runs for 200km amid the valleys of the Inner Tien Shan, before flowing into the Naryn River.
The most preferable time for fishing on the Kekemeren is spring, when the water level increases and intensive development of water insects' larvae occurs. The Caddisfly larvae, at the end of its water phase of development, is the basic food for all kinds of fish living in the river, as well as being the best bait at this time. Trout actively bites on spoon-bite or on fry. In autumn, trout also bites nicely on fry and spoon-bite, and Schizothorax, on grasshoppers.
Chon-Kemin RiverDuration: 2 - 4 days
Season: March - September
The Chon-Kemin river is the main tributary of the Chu River. It is created from the meltwater of glaciers of the Kungey-Too and Zailiyskiy Altau Ranges, and flows between them for more than one hundred kilometers to the West.
Amu-darya trout predominates in the Chon-Kemin River. Sometimes it is mixed with Issyk-Kul trout. The maximum weight of trout reaches 5 kilograms. There are a few very large (1 kg) representatives of Issyk-Kul trout and Chuy Osman.
