Fishing Tour

Mongolia is an exceptional place for fishing, with a plethora of fresh water lakes and rivers, teeming with fish. It is a joy for any serious Angler, to fish in pristine unpolluted waters with an abundance of fish, all of which are native to Mongolia, with no foreign introduced species. Lenok and Greyling are found in abundance all over the water systems of Western Mongolia. We practice a catch and release policy in order to be ecologically friendly and to preserve fish stocks.
