On my Russian fishing trips over the past few years I never went to the Kitza. It is a lower tributary of the Varzuga (almost an estuarial debouchement) and I would like to go one day but meanwhile here is a photo of the new lodge out there posted by Charlie White on his Varzuga blog last week.
What a place to go and what a place to be.
Here’s another shot from Roxtons blog (link on home page below). The water is bubbling through but it’s certainly low for the time of year. Well I say that but it is late May. With hot bright weather
catches are still holding up but the Kitza is top water with its cooler water sourced from a lake upstream.
So how many fish are they catching? A lot. You’ll have to visit the blog to see!
