Im May at the Amur River
Together with my friend we were fishing in the area of the Sarapulskoe village 100 km down from Khabarovsk.
The water level in the river is low; numerous lakes and channels of the wide valley are almost dry or dry
The hummocks after the fall grass-fire
I was trying to catch Prussian carp with a nymph, but only the banded catfishes were biting
The predators were not too active; we were not able to catch any big specimens
In our catches there were skygazer…
Yellowcheek is a rather rare fish
Two times we were very much surprised. A Prussian carp was caught with a jig and silicon lure.
Ussuri catfish is rarely caught with a spinning tackle
