Leningrad Oblast may be a relatively small region, but is very appealing to those, both professionals and amateurs, who love fishing. The numerous bodies of water rich in fish make such a hobby interesting and fun. The length of all of Leningrad Oblast’s rivers combined totals more than 50,000 kilometers! Some of these rivers don’t even have names, but are still home to many trout and grayling.
