This is a landlocked salmon, found in Danube river and its tributaries. It is a close relative of the Mongolian taimen (Hucho Taimen). Fishing for it is generally permitted in winter time (November – February). The smaller fish feed on flies and other aquatic life, but with age their diet changes to be almost exclusively other fish, with the occasional small rodent.  On tributaries the odds on catching one on a fly (fish or scalpin imitation) are pretty good.
