In the end of July I was fishing the Ola River near the Magadan city in the Russian Far East.
Ola is a typical salmon river of the Sea of Okhotsk coast. Its valley has flat bottom; the rover is forming braids and flows on the pebbles.
The fish was active, but it was interested not in any flies
The most active biting was for pink wobbler-flies
Yellow flies were exciting only chum salmon; pink salmon were not interested
Most of pink salmon were dark; only one bright female was caught
A huge pink salmon male (about 4 kg) was landed
