The Ponoi River in Russia is unquestionably the finest Atlantic Salmon fishing River on the planet.

First discovered in the 80’s no other salmon river in the world produces catch returns anywhere near the Ponoi. The remoteness is staggering, a charter flight from Helsinki to the old Cold War Naval base town of Murmansk and then a two hour helicopter ride above the tundra into the depths of the Arctic circle.

The Ponoi is renowned for its unique Fall run of fat, exceptionally strong fish that overwinter under the ice, our prime late season week targets these beasts. What other Atlantic salmon river in the world can boast a per-rod, per-week average of 30 or more fish across a 16-week season over more than 20 years? Generally, the spring season averages 30 to 40+ fish per rod, the summer 20 to 30 fish and the autumn 20 to 35 fish per rod. For guests to catch over 100 fish in a week is not uncommon. If you want to be
certain of catching a salmon, Ponoi is undoubtedly the most reliable option.

Join us for the finest fishing lodge experience in the world – helicopters and hovercrafts, caviar and crab legs, premium vodka under the Northern lights and the King of fish, the Atlantic Salmon.
