June fishing

So, the spawning ban has been lifted. What kind of fish and where they catch in June.

So, for five days already, the spawning ban in the Mari El Republic has been lifted in the water area of ​​the Cheboksary reservoir and rivers flowing into the reservoir. Summer fishing at the Kuibyshev reservoir began earlier – on June 5th. If we talk about the Kuibyshev reservoir, then in Mari El these are places in the region of Sidelnikovsky Island, the villages of Kokshaysk, Urakovo, Kanyshevo, Shelangush, Black stones. All these are places of fishing from a boat to the onboard donka, feeder and “ringing”, it is clear, for lovers of such fishing, which usually happens on the water a lot. With the opening of the season, outboard motors begin to roar in the backwaters, and on the Volga, breakers and spray placers from motor boats breaking waves are already visible. It is the fishermen who are in a hurry to anchor and wait for the bite of the bream, sopa, ide, roach, silver bream, bluebill, that is, ordinary Volga fish. And at the left low bank near the mouth of Bolshoi Kokshagi can take a large crucian buffalo. At the mouth of Malaya Kokshagi, which is located below Kokshaysk, there are bites of carp. The right high bank, where the depth reaches ten meters in places, even with the shallowing of the Volga and the current is rapid, is usually caught bream and ide for heavy “rings”. The left bank, where the current is more moderate and the depth is less, is a place for catching large roach, although, of course, breams are not uncommon, but scammers often come across along with the bream. Here they often catch on-board donks and feeder.

From the sandy Sidelnikovsky Island, which is located above Kokshaysk, during this period they actively catch czechon on the “rubber band”, often by entire families, at the same time relaxing on the sand of the island and swimming in the Volga waters. But the chekhon is already pecking smaller than during the May move, when real “sabers” came across. Here, it happens, it will take pike perch on an elastic band, if you put a load on it and put a hook or a live fry on the hooks. Fans of spinning walk along the sandy shore and catch stepped wiring on the jig of zander and perch, on top of the wobblers – asp. But asp are caught only by those anglers who are able to make long casts. This cautious predator does not come close to the shore.

If you put live birthing donks at night, then at dusk a bell or a feeder bells may ring. It was a pike or a pike perch that took a carp or a bait. Often a large perch grabs live bait.

Above the dam of the Cheboksary Hydroelectric Power Station, where the flood zone is located, during this period, freshly spawned breeding greedy pecks in the ducts, and individuals come under a kilogram of weight. On the feeder caught in the ducts and bream, roach, rudd. In quiet grassy backwaters, a tench also occurs. But these places are mostly hunting areas for pike, which are caught during this period in the ducts for oscillating and rotating spinners, for wobblers of minnow. In clean places where there is no snags, and this is a wide channel near the Roasted knoll, zander and bersh are caught on a jig by step wiring. In this channel, the channel of the flooded Rutka River stretches along the sandy bottom. On the edges that were its shores, the jig with foam rubber fish is carried out in steps on a flexible suspension with a load or on an offset hook, twisters, rippers, vibro-tails of bright and various colors.

On the Volga River in the region of Voronny Island or along the edge of a long island, where a channel of a river also passes, you can get to the zhor asp. Here, the castmaster, wobbler or under the island bushes – spinning spinners will work more efficiently.

In the depths of the channel leading to the mouth of Rutka, pike and perch are usually caught at this time on minnow wobblers and spinners. A large rudd is excellently fishing on the shores in the grass. Caught: roach, scavengers, breeding, perch, if you plant a worm. Can take a weighty tench in the grass. The usual nozzle is bread, and the bait is a worm and maggot.
