2005 — Week 34

The weather showed us all of its varieties: from sunny days with no winds to cloudy and windy conditions. We had 2 days with very little rain. On the last day of the week we experienced cool temperatures as we had winds from the North.

We were very happy to send a group of fishermen to our regular Salmon river in Alaska after the river was unfishable for more than a week. They did very well and almost caught their limit of nice Sockeye Salmon. Unfortunately heavy rain in Alaska made the same river rise again and we could not make more trips down south for the rest of the week. We are waiting impatiently for an OK from our Guide at the Silver Salmon River - very heavy rain affected this area as well. Weather forecasts are looking much better for the next days to come and we are confident to fly down very soon.

We already have a good number of Laketrout in our rivers and a lot have been caught on flies and smaller lures. Fishing for Pike is still excellent with many nice fish up to 95cm. Grayling fishing is reliable as always and they responded very well to dry flies even with cooler temperatures. Generally we had a very good week for the freshwater species, we were just a bit unlucky with the Salmon fishing.
