Dzalinda river in translation from “Evenks” language means "taymen river". This is slang name of this river. And though the river is rather removed from civilization, people periodically visit this places. Generally it is hunters-field men and rare tourists. Riverheads abound with “zalomy” and "razboi", so-called branchings of sleeves of the river. The hard-to-reach spots and inconvenient for rafting,  for this day this places kept big population of a trophy taimen. Here it is possible to catch fish weighing 35-40 kg. On average and the lower current  “zaloms” - much less. Here if it is correct to guess over time - it is possible to catch a large taimen which will go down for hunting for a salmons and a rising whitefish.


For effective catching of a large taimen it is possible to allocate two periods of time: first decade of June and first decade of September. At this time it is possible to catch till 20-30 taymens from a reach (in some places). Then fish will evenly be distributed down the river and fishing on it to become more measured.


Night fishing on this river is very fascinating. The taimen if isn't active in the afternoon – it will be surely  hunt at night. We caught taymens to 31 kg, on an artificial mouse.
