The Umbozero Lake is located between the Khibiny and Lovozero tundra. It is the deepest lake (110 m) on the Kola Peninsula. Several rivers flow into the lake: rivers Chuda and Sura from the north, river Kitsa from the east, and river Umba flows out to the south.
Recreational and sport fishing in Umbozero lake is allowed with using a spinning rod, fishing rods and lures.
The Umbozero Lake has Arctic char, char, trout, Brown trout, salmon, grayling, pike and other whitefish.
Brown trout is the largest fish from the salmon family of the lake. It can reach a weight of more than ten kilos and one meter long. An average trout can be caught up to two and a half kilos. In September or October trout goes to spawn in the river rapids.
Arctic char got the name “Palia” in Umbozero lake. Palia can be up to three kilograms of weight and have a length of 50 cm. It lives in very deep water. When it is raining, Palia rises into the upper layers of water and can be caught on the fly or lure.
Grayling likes to stick to the same places: in the summer his flocks looking for food in the shallows. In the spring grayling rises to spawn in small rivers or streams. The huge dorsal fin allows grayling make sharp manoeuvres, and on a sunny day - to jump out of the water to catch insects fallen down. Grayling can be caught by a fishing rod with light float on the fly, jig or worm.
Pike does not inferior to Brown trout size.
