2004 — Week 34

Once again, the weather hasn’t changed much: it is still very warm for this time of the year and we had only one day with a little bit of wind. The first days were still smoky but for the rest of the week we had clear visibility. On Friday night we got some rain which was highly appreciated for two reasons: first it reduces the danger of new forest fires and second we will see some mushrooms which are, needless to say, great to eat. The warm temperatures made our nearby river in Alaska rise as there was a lot of water coming from the glaciers. Therefore, we couldn’t fish for Sockeye Salmon for five days. Better news comes from our local river where already over 4’000 Sockeyes have entered – a high number for this time of the year and a good indicator for a strong run. With cooler temperatures in the night the Laketrout started being more active but were still pretty tough to catch. Fishing for Grayling, Pike and Rainbows continued to be excellent. One day we had a bad surprise at a remote Lake when we wanted to use our canoe: an angry bear chewed up the whole bow of the canoe! As the below pictures proves this is a true and not a fishing story.
