Kamchatka 2010 - Vorovskaya River
Vorovskaya River is flowing into the Sea of Okhotsk through the birch forests of the western Kamchatka. The river hosts stocks of all 6 species of Pacific salmon, Dolly Varden and white-spotted charrs, and rainbow trout.
Grassy jungle along the river hide trails of brown bears
Cherry salmon in Kamchatka is always small - as big as pink salmon
This male of cherry salmon is beginning to gain spawning colors
Rainbow trout is plentiful in the river; its average size is not big
An attempt to land chum salmon with light tackle could cost you a rod
