Fishing for Perch and Pike on Itkula

Small perch off the east coast. Exceptions are extremely rare. It is better to catch large perch and pike for spinning from the western and southern shores of the lake. Perch prefers medium-sized turntables and always stands closer to the bottom. Color preferences were not noticed, but we usually loaded the spoons additionally, to make it easier to drive at depth. But there are exceptions. Once we caught a large flock of perches off the east coast, hiding under the meter-long pipes of the old water intake. Local fishermen said, that the perch comes there periodically.

The pike goes like a by-catch to the perch - it seems, there is not much of her. It works well with vibro-tails of natural colors about 7 centimeters. maybe, the transparency of the water affects; presence of color reflections visible from afar, scattered, eg, oscillating spoon, fish rather scares away.

It is more effective to catch pike from a boat, near islets of reeds, scattered along the gentle shores. The perch bites there too, but the bait is more active, than spinning. Prefers the worm from bait.

How can I get to (get there)

Next is the list of entrances (approaches) to the reservoir - 2 option.

West bank (from Yekaterinburg)

  • Coordinates: 56° 09′42 ″ s. w., 60° 28'25 ″ in. d.
  • Distance from Yekaterinburg: 101 km.
  • Drop option: any car.
  • How can I get to: from Yekaterinburg you should go in the direction of Polevskoy, which you need to drive, further - to the village of Poldnevoy, you should drive it too, further - to the village of Dautovo, before reaching which you need to turn right - to the village of Saima. Then you should go straight, without turning anywhere, until a lake appears to the left of the road.

West bank (from Chelyabinsk)

  • Coordinates: 56° 09′42 ″ s. w., 60° 28'25 ″ in. d.
  • Distance from Chelyabinsk: 192 km.
  • Drop option: any car.
  • How can I get to: from Chelyabinsk you should go in the direction of Yekaterinburg - to the village of Argayash, to which you need to turn off near the village of Dolgoderevenskoe. Then you should move to the village of Kuznetskoe, where you need to turn right - on Kyshtym, after passing which you need to move to Kasli. In Kaslyah, turn left to Verkhniy Ufaley. Before Verkhniy Ufaley, turn right to the village of Itkul, having passed which, continue driving until the village of Selki (on this section of the road after a while there will be an intersection with a dump lake and a substation - you need to turn left on it, then after three and a half kilometers - at another intersection - to the right). After it, about 6 kilometers will be Lake Itkul (to the right of the road).

Fishing on Lake Itkul

  • Fish species:

  • Artificial settlement: in the past, bream was launched into the lake, ripusa and siga. Bream with whitefish have successfully acclimatized. At one time, the reservoir was even used for the reproduction of whitefish - the eggs of this fish were collected in it for breeding.

Fishing spots

Throughout the reservoir - as from the shore, and from the boat. The second option is more preferable, as it allows you to fish deep holes, of which there are several on Itkul in different places.

Fishing features

Lake Itkul is famous for its large roach - it is for this fish that fishermen usually go here.. AND, interestingly, the following trend has been observed recently: the most savvy people try to catch chebak at night - according to the principle of classic bream fishing. Which is by no means devoid of common sense, because in many reservoirs roach gradually "shifts" its activity schedule towards the dark time of the day as it grows, well, the largest individuals bite only at night. Itkul turned out to be one of these reservoirs - night fishing of a chebak on it shows a noticeably better result, rather than during the day. Though, when roach have bursts of activity (for example - on the last ice), she bites "like a machine gun" during the day.

The second most popular fish is perch. Mostly small specimens are caught, but at least - not that frank little thing with a finger, of which there are many in other bodies of water. To all other, on the lake there is always a chance to catch a good gram perch under 300, or even more ("Registered record" pulled half a kilo). But these are mostly caught with a spoon..

As for other predators - pike and burbot, in the lake they are also caught regularly. The first is represented mainly by "grass", trophy specimens are rare lately. Burbot reaches a decent size and is found in abundance, but it is usually only caught in winter, "At night" - for live bait-ruff or special burbot spoons.

by the way, fisherman, not shy about catching ruffs, Itkul will also please - here they are found quite good, sometimes not inferior in size to the famous Tavatui.

There used to be a lot of bream in the lake, but uncontrolled poaching severely undermined the population of this fish. Now it's not like bream - the breeder is rarely caught.

Among other fish, periodically caught by fishermen, it is worth noting whitefish - it is caught in winter, especially at night, at great depths.

The rest of the fish are bleak, dace, crucian carp, tench - caught sporadically, and mostly in the summer.

Itkul is most interesting precisely as a place for winter fishing., in the summer, they ride it more for the purpose of simple recreation.

How to get to Lake Zyuratkul

The most convenient approaches to the lake are located near the village of Zyuratkul. There are several ways to get to the village of Zyuratkul:

1. By personal transport

From the M-5 Ural highway we turn towards the village of Magnitsky and continue to move 9,5 km to the village. At the entrance to the village of Magnitsky there is a checkpoint "Magnitka" of the National Park "Zyuratkul". A visit to the park is paid - 100 rubles per person for the entire stay.

Then we follow the grader road (rides on any car) to the village of Zyuratkul 12 km.

2. By public transport

Plane: nearest airports in cities of Ufa, Chelyabinsk, Ekaterinburg. Next take a bus to g. Satka. From. Satka - taxi or ride to the village of Zyuratkul.

A train: branch "Moscow - Chelyabinsk", we go to the stations Suleya or Berdyaush. From both settlements there is a bus to Satka. Schedule on the information portal g. Satka. From. Satka taxi or ride to the village of Zyuratkul.

Bus: from the nearest large cities Yekaterinburg, Ufa, Chelyabinsk daily regular buses go to Satka. From. Satka - taxi or ride to the village of Zyuratkul.

Features of Lake Terenkul

Lake Terenkul is located at the base of the eastern slope of Mount Saktaevskaya (Andreevskaya Sopka), belonging to the ridge Ilmenskie Gory. Ilmensky State Reserve is located not far from here., but the lake is beyond. The closest border of the reserve is only 1 km south of the lake.

The name of the reservoir is translated from Bashkir as "deep lake". Really, according to data from sources, average lake depth 15-20 m, and the maximum is 33 m.

With a considerable depth, the lake is small in size. It stretches from northeast to southwest for 1,5 km, width up to 600 m. Water edge 312 m. It feeds on surface and groundwater. Has no visible drain.

We ended up on Terenkul by accident: cutting off the road to the point we need, saw a pond on the side of the road. Stopping and reaching the shore, stunned by the opening beauty. The lake is very picturesque! Thanks to, that it is surrounded by mountains and forests, a special atmosphere is created. As if you are not in the Urals. Few of the small lakes of the Urals can boast of such landscapes.

There is a recreation center on the southern shore of the pond. The lake has a tenant, who is engaged in fish farming. A floating bath moves along the water surface of the lake. You can approach the shore without hindrance, but if you want to stay here for the night or drive, have to pay.

The shores are convenient for swimming. The water in the lake is clean and very clear. You can see the underwater vegetation, floating fish, and if you're lucky, then and aquatic animals.

There is fish in the lake: pike, perch, roach, tench, crucian bream. Fish farm breeds carp, trout, sturgeon, sterlet. Paid fishing.

A cottage village was built near the southern shore of the lake. IN 1973 year on the northern shore of Lake Terenkul, pegmatite veins with excellent specimens of the sun stone were opened. The long slit cavities contained crystals as separate stones and sometimes in intergrowths and brushes. Due to inclusions of hematite, it had a high gem value.

Nearby there is a more popular and well-known reservoir - the Argazinskoye reservoir (Argazi). You can also visit the French Hill located in the vicinity.

Walk along the shores of Lake Zyuratkul

The shoreline of the lake begins from the dam drainage structures. The shores of the lake are either rocky, either unpaved. The lake offers views of the Zyuratkul ridge and the Moskal ridge.

Also, Mount Lukas is visible from almost everywhere from the lake, and beyond it the ridge Nurugush.

A little further along the coast, a cluster of wooden boats, which can be rented.

Then the coastline leads to Cape Kamenny. It is better to visit it from the recreation area "Berlogograd". To do this, in the village you need to drive past the information stands of the national park, turn onto Lugovaya street and follow it, until you hit the end of the road, which leads to the lake. Read more about the recreation area "Berlogograd" in the article about the National Park "Zyuratkul" in the accommodation section.

Lovers of well-groomed beaches may not like Lake Zyuratkul, because its shores are as natural as possible.

Despite, that the water is not so clear, as on the same lake Turgoyak, Zyuratkul is a very ecologically clean lake. Flowing lake, its water exchange is very high. Many small rivers flow into the lake, and one follows - Big Satka. The opacity of the water is due to several factors. The first is that, that the lake owes its origin precisely to silting and blocking by soft, soluble rocks of the basin between the surrounding ridges. Second factor: numerous rivers feeding the lake flow through the marshy area, the soil around the lake is waterlogged. Well, an additional factor: during the construction of the dam and raising the level of the lake, there was a lot of flooded forest under water, the bed of the future reservoir was not sufficiently cleaned.

Nonetheless, in the early morning calm, transparency increases.

Heading towards Kamenny Cape, first we pass the next boat stop.

The lake attracts a large number of fishermen and boating enthusiasts all year round. And in winter - ice fishing. by the way, you can only walk on the lake with oars or with an electric motor, gasoline engines are prohibited. In the photo below, on the background, behind the fishermen and the beginning of Mount Lukas, in the blue haze we see the Nurgush ridge.

To 2012 The Kitova Pristan entertainment complex was located on the shore of the lake, now it has been moved to the city of Satka, and only a few buildings remain on Zyuratkul.

After the former entertainment complex, we walk a little more along the coast.

We go out to the cape, called Stone.

Fishing Chebak on Lake Itkul.

You can successfully catch a chebak from any shore of the lake; chebak of different sizes (to 200 grams) and best of all bites on raspberries. But, according to our observations, there is more of it on the east bank. Moreover, late spring, when the lake fills with melt water, the gateway of the source to Sinara opens and a large number of fish goes up from there to spawn and, naturally, rests against the gateway. About two weeks near the stream sluice (six meters wide and about a meter deep) nibble beyond praise.

Sometimes we caught a bucket of a chebak and a medium-sized soroga for two hours. You have to catch in the wiring in a seething stream and on a very sensitive float, as in the still icy water the bites are very weak. Fishing is rather "on intuition" and is very reckless. true, too many fishermen gather there on weekends.


The largest lake - Bolshoy Utkul is located on the border of Troitsky and Zonalny districts. Located at a height 216,4 m. Fresh lake, flowing; the Bulanikha River flows into it, the river Itkul flows out, which flows through Lake Maly Utkul from the northwest, changing direction several times, and flows into the Chemrovka river.

In the mid-90s, the surroundings of the lake were plowed up for 54%, afforested on 19%, waterlogged on 6%.

The following villages are located near the lake: from the north east - Pleshkovo, in the central northern part - Vershinino, in the north-western part - Utkul. In the central southern part, the village of Ozerki was once located between Bolshoy and Maly Itkul (now defunct).

Semi-submerged aquatic vegetation occupies about ⅓ of the basin area in 464 km2. During the flood period, Bolshoi Utkul is annually filled with water through the system of small rivers. Their water is close in composition to river: hydrocarbonate class, calcium groups, with a favorable oxygen regime throughout the year.

The bottom of the lake is flat. Bottom deposits up to 2 m, the lake belongs to non-pollution reservoirs, that is, the fish remains in the lake throughout the year, does not die out. Rich in food for fish and poultry.

Of the fish in the lake, mirror carp was noted, carp, bream, tench, perch, roach, carp, pike.

On the south bank, at the source of the Itkul River, there is a fish factory, whose branch is located on the north bank from the west of the. Vershinino.

Of particular note is the presence of crayfish reserves in Lake Bolshoy Utkul. At present, his main business has been formed here..

The average size and weight of male cancers is 125,0 mm and 71,3 g, females - 120,0 mm and 52,2 g.

IN 2014 year, the average size and weight of males was 124 mm and 46,7 g, females - 111 mm and 41,2 g with the ratio of males and females 2,8:1.

Fishing on Lake Itkul

Lake Itkul is located in the north of the Chelyabinsk region, not far from the border with the Sverdlovsk region. This is probably the most beautiful and cleanest (the transparency of the water reaches 4 m) lake of the southern Urals. It is worth noting, that Itkul received the official status of a natural monument and reserve. Its value is approximately 8 kilometers in length and 6 across. Maximum depth no more than fifteen meters. The bottom is mostly sandy and rocky, therefore, the lake is low enough for fish.

The east coast is steep, although there are small sandy beaches, the western coast can be described as gentle and wooded, it looks more like the shores of the Middle Urals. In water, near the southern edge of the lake, the famous "Shaitan-stone" rises, and in the rocks near it there are several small caves. But besides him, along the southeastern coast, there are many beautiful rocks and outliers. The landscapes on the flatter banks are also very picturesque..

The village of Dautovo is located on the northern coast and the village of Itkul on the north-eastern coast., therefore they are less interesting for fishing and recreation. There is a source on the eastern shore of the lake, partitioned by adjustable sluice. It flows into Lake Sinara, located in the closed area of ​​the city of Snezhinsk. therefore, apparently, fishing in this small river is often more interesting, than on Itkula itself.

These fertile places were inhabited for a very long time. According to archaeological excavations, near 7 000 years ago. And around 2 700 years ago, emerged and existed for about 400 years, the so-called Itkul culture with an extremely developed metallurgy.

Archaeologists have found many metallurgical furnaces at the site of the settlements., ore, crucibles and molds. The Turkic name of the lake - Itkul - consists of two words: it - "meat", bullets - "lake", and, apparently, talks about, that the lake is rich in fish.

The village of Itkul is older than Yekaterinburg and Chelyabinsk, she more 300 years. Interesting, that when Yekaterinburg was founded, the Bashkirs, who lived near the future city, were deported by Tatishchev and de Genin to the shores of this lake. So, in a way, the local population is the descendants of our failed fellow countrymen. But they hardly have a reason to be offended.. If we compare the climate and nature of the capital of the Urals and these places, need to mark, what, despite the distance of only 100 kilometers, it is always much sunnier and warmer in this area.

Often, leaving Yekaterinburg in the rain, you arrive there on a warm summer day, and on the way, gloomy spruce forests and swamps turn into meadows with sun-shined birch groves on the hills right before our eyes. However, Aborigines have a very peculiar attitude to the surrounding nature. We were unpleasantly surprised, discovering, that smoky quartz boulders, which lay in rows on the beach and adorned this coast for centuries, were simply taken away to decorate summer cottages . The boulders are extremely beautiful when washed.. Now this beach is bare and boring.

Road from Yekaterinburg, if you go slowly, will take you about an hour and a half. Through Mountain Shield, Polevskoy, the Noon station, that is, all the time moving straight along the P-355 highway, you are fifteen minutes after crossing the region border, which you will feel by a sharp deterioration in the quality of the road surface, find yourself in the village of Dautovo on the shore of the lake. The road continues along the east coast, but there is a dirt road around the lake, so you are not limited in the choice of location.


In Soviet times, up to. Vershinino had a daily commuter train.

The name of the lake is usually derived from the Turkic languages ​​as "dog lake", although etymology (reasons for the appearance) he is not known. The origin of the lake's name becomes clear, if you refer to the first written fixation: "Ikukul or God". The Turkic languages ​​know the word yayik “sacred, divine". Can be recognized, that ik is a truncated form of the Turkic word yayik in Russian usage. At the heart of the Turkic yayik is the Indo-Iranian word yai "to make a sacrifice". The appearance of such a name (God's lake) associated with the large size of the lake and the role, which it played in the life of the Turkic herders.

However, the original name of the lake was not settled.. At first, they began to call him Utkul, which not only stuck in the literature, but also officially recognized. This is evidenced by the names of the river that survived on official maps.. Utkul, flowing out of the lake, railway station Utkul on the Altayskaya line – Biysk, and pos. Utkul, located on the western shore of the lake.

undoubtedly, Utkul – this is a recent Russian adaptation of the Turkic name Ik-kul (from Yaik-kul). Об этом свидетельствует и карта Бийского уезда, на которой река (and lakes) названы Иткуль.

Из вариантов топонимов Иткуль и Уткуль правильным является первый. Utkul's variant is his later transformation. Toponym, obviously, underwent folk-etymological rapprochement with the Russian word duck.

The original name of the lake – Ikkul.

Fishing on Lake Itkul Bream and Bream

Bream and breeder on Itkul reluctantly goes to the shore. You have to catch him from the boat. He likes to stand in pits, located either in the center of the lake, either closer to the north coast. The bottom relief there is extremely uneven and the presence of an echo sounder is desirable. The bite of the breeder at the height of summer often lasts until sunset. By preference for bait, it is no different from other lakes in the Urals: raspberry, bread, worm, oparish. We did not try to feed: it hardly makes sense when fishing in a hole.

And finally, a few everyday details. There are shops in the villages on the shore, but their assortment is extremely scarce. It's better to take everything with you. But you don't have to worry about firewood. They are sold at many houses, out on the road, in both villages. And it's better to start the camp in advance, since the lake is located in a relatively flat basin and gets dark there very quickly at sunset.

Stone cape

And this cape is remarkable for this. IN 1967 the dam of the Zyuratkul HPP was repaired, and the lake level was significantly lowered, as a result, a large area of ​​the former coastline was exposed. And in 1968-69, an archaeological expedition discovered eight sites of a Stone Age man. Water has partially done the job for the archaeologists, размыв верхний почвенный слой и обнажив множество предметов быта. На Каменном мысе были найдены яшмовые, кремниевые и сланцевые орудия, а также кварцитовые мотыги, which indicates, that at this time agriculture appeared in the South Urals.

Jasper is a mineral that produces sharp edges when cracked. This property was used to create microliths - small tools, being an integral element for creating a larger tool (like one saw tooth). In other parking lots, dating back to different eras, many guns were also found, loaded, vessels, plus the remains of ancient dwellings with stone walls and hearths were found. The dwellings were as solid - for housing, and temporary - for fishing and hunting.

The most ancient finds were made at Cape Dolgiy Elnik (estimated range from 15 to 6 thousand years BC). Microliths of Zyuratkul have a definite shape, typical for the masters of the Southern Caspian region (Iran, Iraq and other nearby countries). The preliminary findings of scientists indicate that, that Lake Zyuratkul was a certain transshipment base during the migration of people after the end of the last ice age. People from the Southern Caspian region could have come here, and from here their culture spread west, all the way to the Baltics and Finland.

Finding out such information, you start to look at these, really, unique places.

by the way, in 1910 year, Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorsky, pioneer of Russian color photography (and also a chemist, inventor, publisher, educator, public figure and member of many societies), took a color photo of Lake Zyuratkul. Mount Lukash is visible on it and a fisherman sits next to the boats. It turns out, epochs changed, and the fishermen on Lake Zyuratkul how they fished, and they fish. And in the stone age, and in iron, and in tsarist Russia and now.


Paleogeographic and paleozoological data indicate, that in antiquity the flora and fauna of the Itkul lakes and r. Itkul differed from modern only in the direction of greater diversity. The climate here is quite mild with warm winters and long summers.. Spore-pollen analysis data indicate, that significant climate changes for the next VI-VII thousand. years did not happen. Favorable agro-climatic conditions have attracted people here since ancient times.

Monuments of different eras are scattered along the entire coastline of the lakes. Their largest concentration is on the southern coast of the Bolshoi and Maly Itkul. Many monuments fully represent the material culture of various population groups.

Settlements of the Samoyed tribes at the beginning of the 5th-4th centuries. BC, moated and rampart, assimilate the Kulai culture - Settlements 1, 2, 9, Cow Dock 2, Lyapustin Cape, Small Itkul 1, 2, 3, 5, Bridge 2, etc.

The dwellings are rectangular in shape and exit in the form of a corridor. Cultural layers, as in settlements, and on the settlements, poorly saturated. The tribes were engaged in hunting and cattle breeding. Elk hunted primarily, and from the bones of domestic animals there are horse bones. Ceramics are characterized by a round bottom and the custom of decorating it with a duck-shaped stamp.

Eneolithic era (III thousand. BC) near the lake and along the river Itkul represent the Bolshemys and Irba cultures. The Bolshemyskaya culture was identified on the basis of materials from the Bolshoi Mys burial ground and the early horizons of the Kostenkova Izbushka settlement. Material culture is characterized by dishes with a rounded and pointed bottom., fully ornamented with the imprints of smooth and comb rocking.

In Kostenkova Hut, Lyapustin Cape and Maly Itkule 1 Irba ceramics are marked.

Celtic axes found on the southern shore of Lake Bolshoy Itkul belong to the Seima-Turbino bronzes..

The materials of Kostenkova Hut and Dergach speak in favor of, that Lake Bolshoy Itkul became the zone of their contact. This is evidenced by the discovered dishes: can form, row of pearls, notched separation.

Archaeological sites of Lake Bolshoy Itkul: 17 plot - 2, 3, Mikhalev's garden, Demkov's garden; Big Cape 1-6; Settlements 1-6; Ancient settlement 9; Dergach; Itkul-I, III; Komsomolsky cape; Cow Dock 1-3; Korchazhka 1-5; Kostenkova hut; Lyapustin Cape; Bridge across the river.

Archaeological sites of Lake Maly Itkul: Itkul II; Nod 1; Small Itkul 1-6; Bridge 1, 2; Shornikov Mane.

Rock Shaitan-stone

How to get to the rock: to the lake from Yekaterinburg, the closest is to go through Polevskoy, from Chelyabinsk via B. Ufa. To drive to the cliff, you need to move around the lake through the village with the same name Itkul to the village of Klyuchi. In Klyuchi turn towards the lake onto the forest road and further 5 km to the Pumping station. The station has a convenient car parking. From the station along the lake, you can walk through the forest to the Shaitan-Kamen rock - 1 km.

Lake Itkul is very ancient, archaeological excavations have been conducted here more than once. The original Pebble Island is located on the lake, consisting of a pile of stones and boulders. Near Lake Itkul (approximately at 3 km from it) there is a nursery, where you can hand feed sika deer.

A special archaeological culture has been identified based on the finds made on the shores., Itkul tribes successfully mined and smelted metal, traded with other tribes

Getting there: from Chelyabinsk we go along the highway to Yekaterinburg to Tyubuk, where we turn to Kasli. We pass the city and move towards Verkhny Ufaley, and then - to Lake Itkul. You can also get from Chelyabinsk to Itkul through Argayash, Kyshtym and Verkhniy Ufaley - this route is the shortest in terms of mileage.

placement: there are departmental recreation centers on Lake Itkul itself: "Itkul" (accommodation in common buildings - 450 rubles per day; cottages on 6-15 people - from 8,5 thousand. rubles to 16 thousand. rubles per day. Telephone: 8-932-01-00-944), «Metelica» (living in houses on 5-10 places - from 2,5 thousand. rubles to 5 thousand. rubles per day. Telephone: (35164) 3-39-01, 8-902-894-70-17), and also "Ufaleinickel", Uralelement, "Car", "Depot", "Railwayman". Accommodation must be negotiated at least 2 of the week.

Moreover, you can stay in the sanatorium "Sungul" on Lake Sungul (from 2,3 thousand. rubles per adult, taking into account spa services), sanatorium "Dalnaya Dacha" in Kyshtym (from 700 rubles per day), as well as at the recreation center "Aurora" on Lake Kirety (2-x local number - from 2,1 thousand. rubles; cottage on 6 person - 8,4 thousand. rubles, house on 15 person - 12 thousand. rubles).

Dam on Lake Zyuratkul

The initial, the natural lake was almost in 2 times less than the existing, near 6 km2 in diameter and much smaller. IN 1898 the first dam was erected for timber rafting on the Satka river. And later, in 1942 year, began to build a second dam to organize the Zyuratkul hydroelectric power station to supply electricity to the Satka industrial region.

The HPP was put into operation in 1949 year, and 1978 already dismantled due to unprofitability. Now Lake Zyuratkul is, in fact, reservoir and source of drinking water for the city of Satka. Behind the dam is the village of Zyuratkul.

The other side of the dam is directed towards the Zyuratkul ridge.
