2006 — Week 31

Sockeye Salmon fishing was excellent, almost all of our guests limited out. It seems that this year’s run holds a large percentage of big Fish, in the range of ten to twelve pounds. We and our guests don’t mind at all as most of the Sockeyes are getting smoked and everybody is looking forward to take this delicacy back home. All of our rivers are in peek condition and fishing for Grayling and Rainbow Trout was great. We didn’t catch a Trophy but a lot of Fish were between 42cm and 46cm. These Fish are really hard fighters and so much fun to catch on light tackle. Fishing for Pike was very good too and many were caught on surface lures or flies. We did not do many trips for Laketrout because our guests mainly targeted Salmon, Grayling and Pike, fishing for the King of the Lakes remained very good. Streamers and nymphs worked best for them. The weather could have been better, we had a couple of low pressure systems at the coast of Alaska and therefore mainly windy conditions. Most of the days saw a mix of sun and clouds and on one day we had some rain. Weather wise it was a tough week but a great week of fishing.
