2004 — Week 32

Our guests enjoyed great weather this week; with plenty of sunshine and hardly any wind at all. It was a very warm week with temperatures almost scratching the 30° mark! The nights are getting cooler and we even had a frost warning – a clear sign that fall is not far away. Fortunately almost all forest fires in the Yukon are history and the fire ban has been lifted, so we could start having shore-lunches again. Fly fishing for Grayling in these calm conditions was a real pleasure and a lot of nice and big fish were caught. The Pike were still keen to take surface lures and the way they aggressively grabbed these splashing lures is just pure fun to watch! With the warmer temperatures the Laketrout fishing was rather difficult but still a few up to 90cm were caught. Cooler conditions will make them more active and they will respond better to a fly or a spinner. Fishing for the Sockeye Salmon remains very good and our guests are happy to take these fish back home smoked – a great delicacy!
