2003 — Week 38

Unfortunately there was no return of the Indian Summer, in fact we faced very cold temperatures up to minus 15° Celsius in the night and heavy snow falls. One morning we had about 20cm of snow! Temperatures during the day didn’t exceed 5° Celsius but our guests were brave men and went out fishing anyway. They were thus rewarded with excellent catches of Grayling, Laketrout and Pike. It was crazy to see hatches of Mayflies in light snowfall, the dry fly worked out really well. Conditions for Salmon fishing in Alaska were much nicer with warmer temperatures. The fishing for Silvers was absolutely world class, even newcomers to fly fishing were catching up to 10 fish a day. We are having a very strong run of Sockeyes this year, our local rivers did very well, as did the rivers down in Alaska.
