2009— Week 27

We are very pleased to announce more new members to our Trophy Club: Joe Schmidt caught a Pike of 102 cm, Dieter Reister a Pike of 100 cm and Alex Kingston also a Pike of 100 cm. “Big Al” as we called him is only 7 years old and probably the youngest member of our Trophy Club so far. Congratulations to all of them and well done! Fishing for Lake Trout was still excellent with a lot of nice big fish up to 97 cm. Quite a few were caught on flies, this is a real test for the fly rod as these fish put up quite a fight. Not always the fisherman wins… Pike fishing was awesome with many big ones close to the Trophy mark. It really seems that we have a higher percentage of bigger Pike than in the previous years. This is a real good sign for the proper management of our waters. We also experienced excellent fishing for Grayling with plenty of fish very close to 48 cm. Rainbow Trout fishing was good too but no real big ones were caught. As mentioned in the last week report the Sockeye Salmon are running very strong. All our trips to our nearby river in Alaska were very successful and every guest limited out in no time. We did one trip to fish for the King Salmon but unfortunately did not catch any. It is still a little bit early but it looks like we will be seeing low numbers. The first day of the week was cold and rainy but then we had beautiful weather for the rest of the week. The wind was on the calm side, only in the afternoons it picked up as there were a few local thunderstorms. A truly nice week in regards of fishing and weather!
