Admirers of the Urals are often attracted by fishing in Perm krai – on the land, cut by the river loop of the Kama and the riverbeds of its northern tributaries. Each of them – the Vishera, Chusovaya, Sylva – has its own basin of hundreds of rivers (even including such long ones as the Kolva, Kosva and Yaiva), as well as rivulets (up to 10 kilometers long). Fishing and hunting in Perm krai

The large Verkhnekamskoe reservoir is located here, part of the border with Udmurtia runs along the Votkinsk reservoir, and in the extreme east (among the mountain ranges) lies the Shirokovskoe Reservoir. In total, there are 29 000 flowing water reservoirs in the region, the length of which exceeds 10 km. Half of them originate in the Ural Mountains. About 15% of the total number is fuelled by rain. You can catch a pike, perch, burbot, asp, catfish and bleak in rivers. Grayling is found in the north-west.

Fishing in the Perm region pleases fishermen with an abundance of such representatives of lakes as sander, perch, bream, pike, perch, ide, roach, burbot, gudgeon, ruff. The Beloe lake attracts fishermen in early autumn and spring thanks to a good bite of a perch. Although it’s quite problematic to get to this lake. In the marshy area of Cherdynsky district there is a scattering of large and small lakes, among which the Bolshoy Kumikush is the largest. Pike, perch, ruff spawn in the lake, but because of the inaccessibility of the lake, fishing here during the summer is almost impossible. But in winter it is easy to approach the lakes by snowmobile.

Fishing in Perm krai has some restrictions related to spring bans on fishing within the spawning pits (on the reservoirs), and hunting for animals from the Red Book. It includes sterlet, taimen and brook trout. Grayling is also scarce – its catch in the territory of the krai is severely limited. The population of a white gudgeon becomes fewer and fewer.


Hunting in Perm krai is a pleasure for the lovers of the pristine forests of the Kama region. Here, almost all species of upland and waterfowl, bears, elks, wild boars, hares and other furs (foxes, beavers, mink, muskrat, raccoon dogs and arctic foxes) can be found among the wild game. The elk lives in riverside forests, fur animals also live near water, hares and foxes are evenly distributed both in wildwood and forest-steppe. The bear is noticed in all parts of the region. Recently, it has inadmissibly grown bolder, avoiding only the five most southern districts … The situation with a wild boar is quite interesting. It is found only in the central and southern (the most flat and dry) districts.

Hunting in Perm Krai takes place on the territory of 94 public hunting grounds, evenly distributed throughout the region. Half of them are private farms, employees of which provide various kinds of services for amateurs of hunting – apartments, tents, hunting equipment and jaeger escort. The Sylvenskoe is the closest full-fledged hunting farm to Perm (a ferry in the interfluve of the rivers Sylva and Chusovaya moves from the village of Sylva). Here – in dense mixed forests, surrounded by water, all representatives of local wild game are presented at once.

Hunting in Perm Krai is limited by the terms of the seasons and the list of the Red Book. In addition to predatory and stork birds, only 2 mammals are included – a muskrat and a European mink.
