Mongolia is a wild, unbroken land reminiscent of Montana and the American West before settlement. Here you will find some of the world’s largest remaining tracts of true wilderness, rich with clear, free-flowing rivers and vast golden forests of birch, aspen, larch and alder. You will also find the world’s largest salmonoid, the taimen, a vicious surface-oriented predator that is known for its explosive dry fly takes.
Mongolian taimen (Taimen / Amur taimen) is one of the five species of Taimen inhabiting the world and is distributed in the northeastern part of the Eurasian continent. This fish, which can reach up to 2m, is one of the largest salmonid fish in the world. The record so far is 150 cm and 28 kg. In addition to Taimen, there are many Lennock inhabiting, and it is a trout that exceeds 60 cm on the outside, so it cannot be underestimated.
In Mongolia, there is much fish not only in the typical Mongolian rivers such as Onon, Orkhon, Selenge, Tuul, Kherlen, and Eg but also in their tributaries. There are "mountains wherever there are" fish of various sizes. You have to ask the local people where you are.
