Savan River

Kamchatka - Russia

The Savan River system shows the sort of promise that we first saw on the Zhupanova in the mid 1990s, with trout averaging 20-25 inches and more than a few even larger specimens hooked every week. In addition to the giant rainbows, Savan is home to some of the largest sea-run Dolly Varden char that we’ve ever seen on the Kamchatka peninsula.

The river runs for over 70 miles, and features countless springs and one major tributary, the Ichanga. It is a spring creek system, with a vibrant ecosystem and crystal clear flows every day of the season.

The biomass in this river also makes for some of the heaviest trout in Kamchatka, with some 25 inch rainbows here weighing an astonishing 8 pounds! These fish are the apex predators in their ecosystem, and they aren’t shy about attacking large streamers or mouse patterns twitching across the surface. We don’t see many big hatches, but those anglers who have taken the leap of faith and tried casting traditional dry flies or large attractor patterns have had some success over the past few seasons.

Ichanga Float

Kamchatka - Russia

During our initial exploratory season on the Savan, we hiked up its main tributary, the right fork, and discovered some of the best fishing and biggest rainbows of the season.

With this fresh in our mind, we scheduled two full exploratory adventures in 2013. The first trip landed about 12 miles up this right fork, led by Mike Michalak and a group of adventurous anglers from Alaska. During the first few days they found a beautiful river cascading through a rugged canyon. Each day they found a few spots holding some really big rainbows, but between each good “hole” was a lot of difficult terrain making access and fishing difficult. Once they left the canyon, however, they found several miles of idyllic water: it was shallow, easily waded, and full of huge rainbows and char.

Michael Caranci took the second group down the Ichanga a week later, starting at the base of the canyon where the terrain and fishing got really good, spending three days with only 4 anglers exploring every riffle, pocket, boulder, and overhanging tree branch in this small, intimate water. The fishing was incredible, with super aggressive rainbows from 20 to 26 inches attacking streamers and mice patterns with a ferocity seldom seen in trout.

Kendjam

Brazil

Kendjam is a small Kayapó community located deep in Brazil’s isolated Mekragnoti Indigenous Territory.

Kendjam is an incredibly unique experience deep in the heart of the Amazon. Kendjam is a hidden and small indigenous community in the remote land of the Kayapo Indigenous Nation. The Kendjam area is perhaps the most awe-inspiring and untouched Indigenous Territory in the Brazilian Amazon: the Mekragnoti Indigenous Territory. The Mekragnoti is an area of 5 million hectares (12 million+ acres) of pure, virgin Amazon rainforest. Only 700 natives live in this enormous area, one of the most isolated portions of tropical jungle on Earth. The Kayapó is perhaps the important Indian ethnic groups in the Amazon. Their ritual life and social organization are extremely rich and complex, while their relationships with non-Indian society and environmentalists from the world over are marked by their intensity and ambivalence.
