2009— Week 26

Excellent fishing continued with a lot more big fish being caught. Sandy Hilston caught a Pike of 105 cm and Dave Auwerda a Pike of 106 cm. Roderick O’Sullivan caught a beautiful Grayling of 49cm, the first Trophy Grayling of the season. Congratulations to these Gentlemen and welcome to our Trophy Club! Lake Trout fishing was very successful and our guests landed many nice fish up to 92 cm. We did not have any Lake Trout Trophies this week but several times, when we were playing smaller fish, there were huge Lakers following these fish right to the boat, what a thrill! Pike fishing was excellent too; besides the two Trophies there were a good number of fish up to 90 cm being caught. It didn’t seem to matter what kind of lures or flies we were using, they were very aggressive either way. We were also very happy with the Grayling and Rainbow Trout fishing. One guest caught a really beautiful Rainbow Trout of 57 cm, which is for our rivers considered to be a very nice fish as they don’t grow that big here. We had most of the action on dry flies but small spinners or lures worked as well. There are quite a few good reports on the Sockeye Salmon run at the coast of Alaska. Some rivers have very healthy numbers and it shouldn’t take too long until we will be able to fish our regular rivers. Unfortunately there are bad reports for the King Salmon, numbers are way down and we don’t expect a good run. But it is very tough to predict and it is early for our Salmon season anyway. We had all kinds of weather this week, from sunny to cloudy days and one day with rain and colder temperatures. There were only two calm days, the rest of the week we experienced stronger winds from the south but it didn’t affect the great fishing.
