2011— Week 33

We are happy to report another Lake Trout Trophy: Ernst Laederach caught a big fish of 100 cm on a remote Lake. Congratulations and welcome to the Trophy Club! Generally the fishing for Lake Trout was slower than the previous weeks but still successful. Pike fishing was good with fish up to 100 cm. Usually the Pike fishing slows down towards the fall as the fish slow down their metabolism. Grayling fishing was great everywhere we went and our guests enjoyed catching many nice fish up to 45 cm. The first Lake Trout are showing up in our rivers and there will be many more migrating in the next weeks for spawning. They are usually not huge but will offer great sport on lighter tackle. Our guests enjoyed catching lots of Dolly Varden. They don’t grow that big but it is a beautiful coloured fish and also one of the best fish to eat. We are at the beginning of our local Sockeye run and so far more than 6’000 fish have went through the weir. We did one successful trip fishing for them and we are expecting a run above average. The first Silver Salmon are running in some of the rivers at the coast of Alaska. We flew out to a very remote river but our guests only caught a couple of them. There was a good amount of fish around but somehow they were not biting well. It is still early in the run and numbers will increase day by day. So we are confident that the next trip will be a success. We had so much rain in the last two weeks that many of the big rivers are totally flooded. We have never seen such high water levels on these rivers. The majority of the rivers we fish are fine and were not affected by the rain. The rain was good for the mushroom though and our guests picked many nice Boletus. The weather doesn’t want to improve. We only had one calm day during the whole week. The other days were cloudy and windy. But again, we have so many different places to go and even in the worst conditions our guests are catching fish.
