Join Montana Angler outfitter and host Brian McGeehan on a unique expedition to one of Mongolia's most remote watersheds. We will be fishing the Buryat Headwaters with Mongolia River Outfitters. This is a very pecial trip that caters to just 4 total anglers. We will enjoy a progressive river camping experience on a reach of the fishery that is only on 3 trips per year. We will be visiting in mid September to coincide with the opportunity for great water levels, water temperatures and the first wave of fall colors.
During the trip we will fish for a variety of species including the legendary taimen (the largest species of salmonid in the world). In addition to taimen we will also have opportunities for the rare Amur trout, lennok (another salmonid), grayling, Amur pike and ger (like small freshwater tarpon).
This protected fishery is incredibly pristine and we look forward to chasing unique species in a spectacular setting.
