2018— Week 37

Best Indian summer week ever!! We had beautiful fall weather all week long with cold nights (first frosts!) and pleasant days and no wind to speak off. We could fish our home lake all week long and our guests were very successful catching lots and big pike, Jacques Hirtz caught a105 cm Pike and tons of Grayling in the outflow. Lake Trout are starting to move into the shallower parts of the lakes and offer great fun on medium tackle.

We did a couple of trips to one of the mountain lakes and caught huge Arctic Grayling and Pike close to the trophy marks. Jacques lost a very big pike up there because the fish broke his 20 lbs line. In another outpost camp Dominique Bagur caught two trophy pike, both measuring 106 cm, congratulations and welcome to the trophy club Dominique!! Lots of Grayling, Rainbow Trout, Whitefish and Lake Trout now in the upper part of the river. Our guests were very successful fly- and spin-fishing that part of the river. Sadly, we donít find any mushrooms this year, the summer was too dry, and we did not have much snow in the winter.

Earlier this year we had Howard, Paul and Justine Garvey with us (3 generations!). They produced a fantastic video about DTL and the Yukon, you can find it here

All is good here at the lodge, we are looking forward to three more weeks of Indian summer fishing!

2018— Week 23

Things are going good at the lodge; we had a very successful week. The fish are very active as they usually are right after the ice goes off the lakes. All the waters are open now but we did had to push our way through some ice to get to our outpost cabin. The weather has been nice, a bit cool in the evening but it is warming up more and more every day. We have the pleasure of welcoming the first guests to the Trophy Club this season; Ralph Hayes caught a beautiful Pike that measured 114cm. On this same trip Bob Norgard caught an impressive 115cm Pike, welcome to the 2018 Club! At our new destination our guests were catching non-stop nice sized Pike. Since it is such a remote location they are not accustomed to being fished and there was crazy action. The Grayling are in the river systems and fly fishing for them has been really good, with some that were very close to the Trophy line. The water has come up enough on the river to run the jet boat down there were lots of Grayling and we are catching more and more Rainbow Trout every day. Everything is going awesome and the fish are biting everywhere!
