2009— Week 38

We had great weather and excellent fishing throughout the whole week. Steven McLaughlin caught a big Pike of 107 cm and therefore becomes a new member to our Trophy Club. Congratulations to him and well done! Besides the Trophy Pike our guests caught many more nice fish up to 98 cm. Fishing for Lake Trout in the rivers and some of the lakes was world class. Unfortunately no Trophies were caught but we are working on it… Fishing for Grayling was spotty, some rivers are still great with a lot of fish around, other rivers or pools the fish seem to be gone. This is always the case towards the end of the season as the fish stay in the lakes for the winter. In some rivers they start to move out earlier than in others. But don’t worry, there are still plenty of places to go and catch fish. Rainbow Trout fishing was great with nice and healthy fish up to 45 cm being caught. At the beginning of the week we did another fly out trip to the coast of Alaska. Fantastic weather and some of the best Silver Salmon fishing you could imagine. Everybody limited out in no time and our guests had a lot of fun catching these aggressive fish on dry flies. We did a couple of trips to hunt Grouse and Ptarmigan with good success. These birds are excellent to eat and are a real delicacy. Our guests still picked quite a few Boletus mushrooms but with frosty nights this season will soon be over. So with fish, Grouse, Ptarmigan and wild Mushrooms there is everything for the real connoisseur! The weather was beautiful for the first half of the week, no wind, pure sunshine with spectacular fall colours. The rest of the week we got some clouds but still hardly any wind at all.
