The 160,000 square mile wilderness of the Kamchatka Peninsula just might be the last untapped area of wild trout and steelhead in the world. The Kamchatka Peninsula is just a 5-hour flight from Anchorage over an area that is covered rivers, volcanoes, moose, reindeer, and brown bears. Kamchatka is south of the Arctic circle with weather similar to western Canada. Kamchatka is greater in size than California, Oregon, and Washington combined. The geography of the Kamchatka Peninsula is similar to Alaska and there are thousand rivers teeming with trout, char, salmon and wild steelhead. You will be fishing in areas covered with volcanoes, meadows, evergreen and birch trees as far as the eye can see and just one road into the interior Kamchatka keeps the population to a minimum. The Kamchatka Peninsula possesses rivers that have never been seen by a fisherman and most are filled with fish that will die of old age without ever having seen a fly.
