2011— Week 29

What an awesome week fishing for Lake Trout with a total of 6 Trophies being caught! This is incredible, we never had that many Namaycush Trophies in one week. It is wonderful that our youngest guests, 8-year old Carina Jager and her brother, 12-year old Lars both caught a Trophy Lake Trout. Andrea Canova caught two Trophies with the biggest fish measuring 114 cm. This is the biggest Namaycush of the season and the second biggest we have ever caught. Mauro Battistella and Gabriele Ceccin are also new proud members of our Lake Trout Trophy Club. Gabriele did not only catch a Trophy Lake Trout but also a Trophy Pike of 105 cm. Well done everybody and welcome to the Trophy Club! The King Salmon are running strong, during one day 200 Kings went through the weir. All our trips were very successful and everybody landed several big ones. Many were caught on flies and what a thrill it is to play these impressive Salmon on a fly rod. Pike fishing was good with nice fish up to 100 cm. Our guests experienced fantastic fishing for Grayling and Rainbow Trout everywhere we went. There were really nice Rainbows up to 50 cm being caught. So far we did not catch a Grayling Trophy but we had many beautiful fish very close to the Trophy mark of 48 cm. The week started with unsettled weather, mainly cloudy and windy. On Wednesday it was cold and the wind shifted from the South to the North. The rest of the week was beautiful, very warm and no wind at all. All in all a great week with many happy faces!
