2005 — Week 35

We had stormy weather on the first day of the week but then the conditions improved for the next two days with lighter winds. Towards the end of the week we experienced nice days with no wind at all. We had the first frosts this week and the leaves are starting to turn yellow. One night we were able to see the first northern lights - a very unique experience for our guests.

The first Silvers are in the river at the Pacific Coast in Alaska and we did not wait long to fly down and catch the first Cohos of the season. Very nice weather made this trip unforgettable: catching these bars of silver and enjoying the spectacular flight over countless glaciers. Unfortunately our regular Salmon river in Alaska is still unfishable due to high water. Conditions should improve soon with better weather.

The first Sockeye Salmon have entered our local rivers, but not yet in big numbers. Fishing for our freshwater species remained overall excellent and we are very pleased to welcome a new member of our exclusive Trophy Club: Werner Wrede caught a big Grayling of 49cm - congratulations and well done! We are looking forward to another exciting week with many fish and are hoping for a nice Indian summer.
