2005 — Week 32

Finally summer arrived in the Yukon. During the whole week we enjoyed pure sunshine, very warm temperatures and not a breath of wind. Due to forest fires in Alaska we've had some smoke during the last two days of the week. Unfortunately the heat was a problem for our Salmon river in Alaska as there was so much water from snow melt that the river was not fishable for the whole week. Our big advantage is that as we have so many different places to fish for other species, our guests could still catch lots of fish.

The fishing for Laketrout was very good with many bigger fish up to 90 cm and most of them were caught on the fly. We also had a fantastic week for large Grayling up to 47cm, just missing the magic Trophy mark by a tiny little bit. The Pike were aggressive as usual and a pure blast to catch on surface lures or flies. A beautiful week with many happy and sun tanned faces.
