Fishing and Hunting on the rivers Grube-Yu and Lemva

If you want to forget daily vanity and for a short time have life stand still there is no better place to visit than the river Lemva and its tributaries Grube-Yu, Kharuta and others.
The Lemva is one of the largest tributaries of the river Usa in the pre-polar Urals - in its headwaters the river flows swiftly with sharp turns, shallows and fords. Quite often the river divides into channels and after the mouth of the river Parnok-Yu (right tributary of the river Lemva) it becomes broader and the velocity of the current decreases. Below the mouth of the river Khaima (the right tributary) the Lemva is already flat. It flows through hilly districts among forests and has a width of about 60 m - sometimes breaking into channels, forming big woody islands.  Further downstream other tributaries flow into the river: Grube-Yu, Kharuta, Paga and others.
The river is calm without rapids - nature is wild and untouched around you in this uninhabited area. Fishing on the river and its tributaries is excellent. It is possible to catch European grayling up to 2-3 kg. and also there are other species such as loach and salmon trout. In August - September it is possible to catch loach in the lower part of the river.  

During this tour Hunters will have a fine opportunity to hunt on black cocks, hazel grouses and wood grouses.  Besides, there is real possibility to meet northern deer, elk and a bear.
