The Bystraya-Malkinskaya river heads in the Ganalsky ridge foothill and flows from the centre of Kamchatka peninsula to the west (to the sea of Okhotsk). It is the second Kamchatka's river in length. The water level gets its maximum in June, because of the intense melting in the mountains. The width of the river in the rafting zone is 50-150 m, the current speed is 1-4 m/sec, the total length is 120 km. The rafting starts in picturesque place in 150 km from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. Char, mikizha (rainbow trout) and other salmon fishing is possible. The fishing is spinning. The lure and the fishhook are mainly used for fishing. In salmon spawning season there is a high probability to meet a brown bear.
