2004 — Week 26

The extreme hot weather continued this week and almost every day the temperatures exceeded 30°. Despite the warm temperatures the fishing was very good. It was a real pleasure to fish on our lakes with hardly any winds at all. Good numbers of Laketrout up to 80cm were caught. We haven’t done a lot of fishing for Pike, but we know that they are still there and eager to take the fly or lure. Still excellent conditions for Grayling fishing with a lot of surface activity occurring. There is almost nothing better than catching those beautiful fish with small dry flies. Due to the extremely dry conditions many wildfires have started and an absolute fire ban is in effect throughout the Yukon. More than 40 forest fires were reported and every day a new one starts. So far more than 90’000 hectares of forest in the Yukon have burnt down. Most of the Fires are in the North and we hope that our local area will not be threatened.
