Zupanova River,

silversea far east cruise steller sea eagle zupanova river russia

Northeast of Petropavlovsk, on the eastern side of the Kamchatka Peninsula, is the mighty Zhupanova River. Strewn with ever changing shallows and sand bars, the 160-kilometer (100-mile) long river is used year-round by rainbow trout. Anglers are attracted by the pink, cherry, coho, dog and red salmon, as well as Arctic and white-spotted char. At the mouth of the river is a fish processing factory that is busy with local salmon during the summer season. Kamchatka brown bears also like salmon and there is a high chance of spotting a Steller’s Sea-Eagle fishing the river. Other birds seen here are Pacific Divers, Far Eastern Curlew, Aleutian Tern, Pacific Golden Plover, Common Greenshank, Common Sandpiper, Black-headed Gull and Yellow Wagtail.
