2012— Week 36

We experienced a busy week with a lot of action. Josef Stepan caught a beautiful Grayling of 49 cm and therefore became a new member to our Trophy Club. Congratulations and welcome to the Club! He fished a very remote river and found one pool with a big school of large Grayling. All the fish were bigger than 40 cm and that is also where he landed his Trophy fish. As mentioned this river is so remote that we fish it only once or twice a year – pretty cool stuff! Fishing for Grayling was fantastic everywhere we went and our guests caught many nice ones up to 45 cm. The rivers are finally dropping but are still higher than other years. Lake Trout fishing was also excellent and more were caught in the rivers than the previous week. Not that many fish in the rivers yet, it seems that everything is about one to two weeks behind. Even the leaves haven’t really changed colours but with the cooler temperatures this will change soon. Rainbow Trout fishing was great as these fish follow the spawning Whitefish and Lake Trout into the rivers. We did our first hunting trip this season and we have seen a lot of Grouse and Ptarmigan. We shot a few for a tasty lunch in the bush and our guests really enjoyed this delicacy. Together with Boletus Mushrooms and fresh fish a connoisseur can’t ask for more. Our guests did two fly out trips to the coast of Alaska for the Silver Salmon with good success. Everybody landed beautiful Silvers fresh from the Ocean. It wasn’t easy to organize these trips as there were several storms hitting the coast and the weather wasn’t always flyable. But everybody came back safe and with a big smile from these unforgettable trips. The weather gave us a really hard time, we had very strong winds almost up to 80 km/h. Especially the first half of the week was windy then it calmed down but then we got solid rain on the weekend. We even had the first snow showers – where is our Indian Summer? At least there was one beautiful day and who really cares about the weather when the fishing is great!
