Fishing in Onon River
Six full days of exploring this beautiful and fascinating river, with the full support of staffs, rafts and camping equipment.
The Onon River is a major watershed for Asia. The river begins on the eastern slope of the Khentii Mountains just south of Russian Siberia and within the immense Khan Khentii Strictly Protected Area (National Park), which is totally devoid of people. The river eventually joins the Herlen and Amur Rivers before entering the Pacific Ocean at the Sea of Okhotsk. Further down river we will reach the first inhabited areas. The majority of the locals are “Buryats“, a Mongolian ethnic minority, whose ancestors migrated over the border from Siberia early 1900s. Most families herd livestock. The primary form of transportation is still a horse. We will move further down river every day, pitching a new camp each night. A cook will prepare our meals, and perhaps, just a picnic lunch will be prepared for midday. We expect to make use of morning and late afternoon fishing, and moving during midday, provided this method is suitable for fishing.
Angling for wild fish in an inspiring alpine landscape. We fish in a variety of locations from tight spring creeks to the large main river. Eventually we will meet our support vehicles near Batshireet village, situated on the Eg River, a tributary of the Onon.
