Tunguska River float-trip & fishing - May 2009 (Amur River drainage)
Kur River is 434 km long. After junction with Urmi River it forms 90 km long Tunguska River which joins Amur River at its left bank, opposite from the city of Khabarovsk. On May 8-10, 2009 I have made 3-day float-trip on the Tunguska River. I was using inflatable kayak "Timan" made by "Drakar", Lithuania.
The most numerous fish in catches was sawbelly, surface-feeding small Cyprinid fish. It is common prey of most of the Amur predators.
This is three-lip, a small strange looking predatory fish from the Amur.
