If you wish, you can catch some fish in the forest
Everyone has his own .. You can comfortably fish on the sandy shore, and you can search for it, passing in the wilderness on animal tracks. Someone likes to throw the bait and relax, someone turns fishing into extreme – an activity worthy of a primitive hunter-breadwinner.
Opposite the village of Starozhilsk, which adjoined to the river forty kilometers from Yoshkar-Ola, the forest stream Shapinka flows into the Great Kokshag. Wonderful, I must say, the river. If, on the road from the city, before reaching a few kilometers to the bridge over the Big Kokshagu, go deeper into the forest on the right side of the road, then after some time you can reach this very Shapinka. The river is meandering, so it’s difficult to say exactly how much to go. You can fan yourself a little and wander a little. But the real fisherman of the forest is not afraid, especially since the compass with him and back on the path to go out is not a problem. By the way, on the right side, before reaching the bridge somewhere around two – three kilometers, there was once an apiary. Here to Shapinka there was a forest road, overgrown, but passable. And the river itself squirms through the deaf-heartedly utter As if you are in another world, centuries, that way, heels back. Beaver dams, hazel grouse and black grouse can be seen, traces of boar on the muddy shores. It seems to be close to Kokshagi, and along the river, along its curves, it will take a long time to stomp. You can search for a pike with a short spinning.
You go under the opposite stitch, under the crust of the lure you throw. River in some places – you can outdo, but there is a fish. A friend somehow here six kilograms of pike snag ripped. There are a lot of hooks, so it is better to use a lightweight jig: a silicone fish, a twister or a single-hooked vibro-tail, even better – a non-hooking will flicker. You can just with a strong not long live bait rod minnow in cast to throw, tempting temples.
If desired, fishing is not prohibited for fishing with a float bait, catching a litter, small eggslides. Here, it happens, and sub-platforms come across, villagers, chubs. But with spinning, it is still more convenient to walk along strongly overgrown river banks. Although a walk is easy to say, sometimes it is necessary to wade through the bodies, like a wild beast. But then – primordial in everything. Human voice is not audible. You and wilderness. Like in the movies. Mosquitoes – darkness, but in this case, the repellent in his pocket hidden. By the time you reach the mouth, you will wear yourself. But, if you’re lucky – you will be rewarded with a good catch for your hard work. The pike is definitely found here, although not very large. And you will test yourself for strength, on such rivers by the company it is inconvenient to walk, only you will scare the fish, but not everyone alone will decide on such a voyage.
Fishing on the forest river
The best time, I think, is September
Mosquitoes smaller, lighter forest. And the September pike becomes more active. Bad that the day is already short. It is cool to spend the night at the campfire in September, but you don’t want to carry the tent with you – an extra load. It is better to make short visits. In the morning, leaving the car near the bridge (if you are not afraid of the crooks – without protection), return for a ride after driving two or three kilometers. And on Shapinka go to her mouth opposite Starozhilsk. With the catch!
