Expedition-Style Fishing

The Buryat Headwaters Expedition is a wilderness float and fishing adventure exploring the most remote reaches of Mongolia’s first taimen sanctuary.  These trips run  with just one guide and two guests.  The trip is supported by a small camp team that transfers equipment downstream using gear boats.  You’ll float and fish through a diverse, mountainous landscape targeting taimen, Amur trout, lenok, and Amur pike.  

Limited numbers, remote location, incredible fishing, world-class guides, a unique culture, and outstanding wilderness accommodation all combine to make for a remarkable adventure.

Trip description

Upon arrival in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, an English-speaking guide and driver transfer guests to a comfortable hotel in the vibrant city center.  After a relaxing evening, guests travel to the river by vehicle or charter flight depending on the departure date.  

You’ll fish through a diverse, mountainous landscape targeting taimen, Amur trout, lenok, and Amur pike.  

Guests explore new water every day, floating between tented camps strategically placed along the river.  

Anglers enjoy fishing from comfortable ClackaCraft drift boats.  It’s quite an experience standing tall in a drift boat while sight casting to a feeding taimen.

These trips run with just one guide and two guests.  The trip is supported by a small camp team that transfers equipment downstream using gear boats. 

TRIP DESCRIPTION 

Each day’s float covers 15 – 25 kilometers (10 – 15 miles) of water, with a midday break for a shore lunch. 

Only international anglers holding a fishing permit allocated through Mongolia River Outfitters may legally fish this river. Our exclusive management agreement requires catch-and-release, fly-fishing only with single, barbless hooks.

Streamside Camps

Guests are accommodated in very large tent-tipis complete with cots and simple bedrolls.  When we arrive at each evening’s camp, the professional staff has your bags waiting, beds made, fires lit, and dinner prepared in the spacious dining tent.  It’s luxury in the wilderness! 

We had an amazing trip on the Buryat Expedition.  It was unbelievable to have the entire river for just the two of us!  Paul and I caught some beautiful fish.  Excellent service and food, beer, and wine.  The country is beautiful and the people are very nice.  Can’t wait to come back!
