2012— Week 37

It has been a very eventful week with a total of 7 Pike Trophies being caught. We are pleased to welcome the following two successful fishermen to our Pike Trophy Club: Mandy Affleck (110 cm, 112 cm, 112 cm, 106 cm, 129 cm) and Walter Affleck (108 cm, 108 cm). Mandy has beaten the existing Lodge Record of 125 cm by his monster Pike of 129 cm! We have never seen such a big Pike in our Lakes. Congratulations to both of you and great job! Pike fishing was very spotty as we had several trips to the same location where you could see huge fish but they were not active. Then for two days you couldn’t keep them off the hook - well that’s fishing. Lake Trout fishing was outstanding although no real big ones were caught. But on the other hand we are really spoilt here as we consider a nice 65 cm Laker as a rather small fish… There are more and more fish in the rivers and our guests had steady action catching them. Together with the spawning Whitefish and the numerous Grayling the pools are full at this time of the year. It is pretty impressive to see the amount of fish holding in the rivers. We were able to do two fly out trips to the coast of Alaska for the Silver Salmon. It seems that the run is about average and we had tremendous days with 40+ Salmon and then days where you would have to work harder to get your limit. The weather was very stormy, we had two large weather fronts hitting us at the beginning and the end of the week. During the middle of the week we enjoyed nice and calm days but that didn’t last long. One morning we woke up and everything was white! We also had the first frosts of the season but that’s normal this time of the year. With winds from the south the temperatures were slightly above average. Great week with many happy fishermen!
