The delta of the Volga River has been famous for its rich fishing waters for hundreds of years. Before flowing into the Caspian Sea, the delta turns into a true water maze made up of innumerous channels, forks and lakes. Here fishermen throw back pike that weigh less than a kilogram because, compared to the rest of their catch, the fish seems like nothing special. Astrakhan Oblast can surprise the most experienced of fishermen from Russia and abroad with its impressive number of big fishing trophies.
