2009— Week 31

We would never have imagined to top the last week’s number of Trophies but one family alone caught 19 Pike Trophies in just 2 days! It was a pretty unbelievable week with a total of 23 Trophies being caught. Family Roth had an unforgettable trip to a remote Lake were they landed all these Trophies. We lost track about the exact sizes so we just mention their biggest fish: Michael 113 cm, Ann-Sophie 110 cm and Tim 108 cm. Alexander Schleifer also caught a Trophy Pike of 107 cm as well as Guenther Schleifer with 105 cm. Roger Gyr landed a nice King Salmon of 35 lbs on a fly. Congratulations to all of you and welcome to our Trophy Club! Fishing for Lake Trout was awesome with many fish up to 90 cm being caught. Most of them were caught on flies and our guests had sore arms from playing that many fish. We did some trips to very remote rivers for Grayling and we found beautiful new stretches. Crystal clear waters with a lot of big Grayling up to 46 cm are a fisherman’s dream! Fishing for Rainbow Trout was also very good and a lot of fun to catch on light tackle. Our guests experienced very good fishing for King Salmon. So far 1300 Kings entered our local river which is slightly above average and certainly way more than we have expected. It is nice to see good numbers especially compared to last year’s very poor run. Our nearby Sockeye Salmon river in Alaska was still flooded. Due to hot temperatures the glacial rivers carry a lot more water and push silt into the salmon river. We had great weather with very warm temperatures during the whole week and mostly light winds. The downside of the dry weather is that there are many forest fires. Most of the fires are in the areas of Dawson and Watson Lake. So far we are lucky here at the Lodge as these fires are quite some distances away from us.
