Description The Nimelen is the river in the Khabarovsky krai, the largest left tributary to the Amgun river (Lower Amur basin). Nimelen means Namo in the Evenki language, i.e. harness, literally means the location for storing harness. The river is rich in fish. From July to September the tourists on the route can watch pink salmon and chum salmon spawning in the river upper flow. Many sports fishermen note that the Nimelen is rich in trophy taimen (hucho); smaller fish up to 10 kg are common. The record big taimen of 89.6 kg was the trophy of the local fisherman in 1986. The latest record was registered in 2012 with the taimen of 62.7 kg caught on the route. The fish was released back in the river. The best time on the river is May and October. The locals say one can come across the stream trout golets (Arctic salmon), a unique fish species not found in the other Amgun tributaries.
