2005 — Week 25

The week began with very heavy rain which made our Lakes and Rivers rise. It is nice to see high water levels on our Lake as it will be much better for the fish when the water temperatures rise. The rest of the week saw mainly calm conditions and a few local short thunderstorms. Fishing wise we had a fantastic week on all of our waters. As forecasted in the last report, the first lake trout Trophies were caught. Dennis Dresti and Tim Drasler both caught their Trophies on the same fishing trip.

Pike fishing was also very good and we are proud to welcome Leon Gervin as a new member of our Pike Trophy Club. Congratulations to all of them! Fishing the dry fly was very successful for the Grayling and Rainbows as there have been a lot of hatches on the rivers. Small spinners worked well also for the non-fly fishermen. Everybody enjoyed a great week of fishing and company.


Water 10 – 15° C
