In the summer, all hunting is prohibited, and hunters switch to fishing. In the reservoirs of the valleys are well caught for bait, especially in June - July, the Chebak, carp, catfish, pike in places, gets barbel; in the mountain rivers - Osman and Marinka. The bait is usually served by earthworms, the larvae of the May beetle are good for large fish, osman and marinka are taken for berries of sea buckthorn, carp for dough, steamed wheat and fry. A true angler knows when and what kind of bait to use. In the rivers of Kyrgyzstan: Chichkan, Kyzyl-Ungur, Gulcha, Ak-Bura and the Tokmak wildlife sanctuary several years ago, trout from the Alai valley were successfully produced and multiply. Previously, it was there only. By the way, sometimes it is wrong for a trout to call osman living in mountain water bodies. A distinctive feature of the trout is a bright color - against the background of small silver scales are red spots on the sides of the body and black on the back, in addition, all salmon, which includes trout, there is a so-called "fat fin". It is located on the back slightly in front of the tail, soft, small in size. Osman refers to carp fish, does not have a fat fin. To catch the incomparable beautiful trout - for the fisherman a big holiday, besides the weight of individual specimens reaches five kilograms. To catch it it is necessary for fry of any weed fish, takes and on a worm, but less often. In Issyk-Kul, amateurish fishing is widely developed for fishing. From the end of July, and gets a cat, you can catch a large pike perch. In the fisheries of Chebak, Pike perch, Osman, Mariks and Bream use nets, and on carp and carp, mainly seine. But these fishing gears are only allowed to be used by hunters who are surrendering fish. It can already be said with certainty that once the bezry fish Lake Son-Kul becomes fish and by productivity, probably in the coming years will surpass Issyk-Kul. About this large and beautiful alpine lake with fresh, amazingly clear water the fish did not breed earlier. The reason for this is the geological conditions that prevent the entry of fish into the lake - it is not associated with other water bodies. The only river flowing from Son-Kul along the way is cut off by a steep waterfall, in the lower reaches there is fish, higher - no, can not get through.
Ten years ago, the staff of the Institute of Biology of the Academy of Sciences of Kyrgyzstan conducted their first experiment, releasing more than a thousand different fish to the lake. New settlers lived the summer and successfully wintered. Thus, the possibility of stocking fish was proved. Subsequently, ichthyologists released several tens of thousands of fry of peli and Osman. Pisces have perfectly got accustomed, breed, thus differ fast growth and good fatness.
