Fishing in Nizhny Novgorod Oblast is an exciting activity for both experienced and novice fishermen. In these parts, the male population has been fishing for as long as can be remembered…The Volga, with is enormous number of backwaters, presents unlimited opportunities for fishermen to hook a prize-worthy catch. The best time to fish is early in the morning just as the sun begins to rise. It is at this time of day that a person’s chances of catching a variety of different species of fish within a short period of time are much greater. RTG TV host Denis Golovko had a bit of luck himself, catching both a pike perch and a pike!
