Kartushka River | Russia

The Kartushka River begins deep in tall mountains flowing in a single channel through a tight valley. Not much braiding. Wading is very favorable. It cruises with class 2 to 3 rapids mixed in. We discovered the tiny Kartuska's splendid scenery and precious habitats. The Kartuska is a“gem” of a river, It has lots and lots of thick Bows that Average 21” and go up to 28”. More bows per mile than any other river I’ve seen in Kamchatka. There are not that many Char in this river. If you enjoy clear moving streams teaming with Rainbows & unexpected elegant landscapes this is your river. The upper river looks a little like the Middle-Fork of the Salmon River in Idaho. It’s gorgeous
