Record sizes Taimen - catch of the Lifetime
Mongolia is three times larger than France and has 2.3 million inhabitants, 1 million of whom live in the capital, Ulan Bator. The Mongolian people are mainly nomads, with huge herds of cows, horses, sheep, yaks and goats, all grazing on the steppe.
The Four Rivers Lodge is one of the most comfortable and welcoming place for fishermen in Mongolia. It is just a four-hour drive from the small town of Moron and lies at the junction of the most beautiful four rivers of the region - the Chulut, the Delgermoron, the Selenge and the Ider. 8 fishermen, 4 guides and 4 jet boats equipped with Mercury engines! Something not to be missed in Mongolia !
The lodge where you will be staying is set in a unique location at the junction of four rivers: the Chulut, Delger, Ider and Selenge. The pools can be reached easily by jet boat and offer excellent fishing conditions. Some spots are even within walking distance from our camp for those of you who are early birds or who want to make the most of fishing at the end of the evening. Whatever the time of day, the pools always manage to surprise us!
The lodge is just the right size and can accommodate 8 fishermen at any one time. Two fishermen share a boat and a guide and the rivers are fished in turn to make sure that no stretch is over-fished. This is one of the secrets of our successful river management as, unlike its migratory cousin, the salmon, taimen are sedentary and care must be taken to avoid too heavy fishing. Thanks to our extensive system covering four rivers, to the mobility of the jet boats and to the limited number of fishermen allowed during the season, we can guarantee first-class fishing in an unspoiled environment.
The Essence of the trip
Mongolia is considered today as the new El Dorado for fishermen. How could anyone not be enthralled by these vast open spaces, void of any civilization, and by rivers which have kept the magnificence of the day of their creation? Mongolia really can be the trip of a lifetime if you are willing to take an interest in its people and are ready to enter a culture so different from our own.
Pools in abundance
Our fishery covers 150 km rich in interesting pools. Most of the stretches have barely been fished before and your fly might very well be the first to be cast. We have already explored a number of locations and each week new spots are discovered, often with a trophy fish being taken on the fly.
The Fishing Experience of a Lifetime
Fishing for taimen is a particularly exciting challenge. Each cast gives you a chance to catch a huge specimen of this local member of the salmon family. It may even be the catch of a lifetime!
The Taimen - as the Huchon is called in Mongolia - can reach record sizes. The average size of 80 cm is already
impressive so just imagine that a lot of fish are over 1.20 m and that the largest can reach 1.50m
A surge of adrenalin
Taimen like big flies, preferably those with lots of glitter. You can also try imitation mice on the surface and we can guarantee that surge of adrenalin when the taimen explodes on your mouse. However, each attack does not end up with a fish on the riverbank - playing a taimen takes a lot of skill and know-how - and a lot of them are lost during the fight or simply miss the fly in their explosive attack. We think that one taimen out of four is actually landed.
Don’t forget about the lenok and grayling!
Taimen are not the only fish in Mongolia and the waters you will fish are full of lenok trout and grayling. The lenok measure on average between 30cm and 70 cm and the larger ones will take taimen flies. Most fishermen heading for Mongolia only think about taimen and forget all about these magnificent trout but they’re well worth your attention if you enjoy fishing dry flies, nymphs and streamers. Grayling are also present, moving in shoals in the river currents.

Important information about transfers in Mongolia
Traveling in Mongolia is a little bit special. It’s a vast country with more tracks than roads and you may have to make a stop in a ger on the way to your destination. This is all part of the excitement of the trip as you will see how the Mongolians live day to day and our Russian mini-vans will be part of the adventure. These 4x4s are known for their reliability and are the only ones able to follow the steepest of tracks or cross rivers in flood after a sudden thunderstorm.
