2019 - Week 37

We had beautiful weather again this week here at the lodge, there was no wind to speak of and nice warm sunny days.

It has been a wonderful fishing week with many nice catches. Our main clientele were fly fishermen so basically our fishing was concentrated more in rivers than in lakes. Grayling fishing was world class everywhere we fished. The fish were very aggressive as they try to get as much food as possible before the winter. Quite a few big Grayling very close to the Trophy mark were landed.

We did a couple of fly out trips for Silver Salmon to the coast of Alaska this week. The trips were absolutely amazing!  Imagine fishing a pristine river full of fish and a beautiful mountain range in the background – it can’t get much better than that.

More and more Lake Trout can be found in the rivers now and our guests had very good action either with flies or lures. Pike fishing was really good in some of the lakes.

Howie Steinberg landed a Trophy Pike that measured 105cm. Welcome to the Trophy club Howie! At the location we built our new cabin, Bruno Reichenbach also caught a Trophy Pike that measured 107cm, welcome to the Trophy Club Bruno.

We also did a few hunting trips for Grouse and Ptarmigan with good success. Not many Ptarmigans around but a lot of Grouse. Our guests enjoyed the birds cooked by our chefs back at the lodge for appetizer and they absolutely loved it!

We woke one morning to fresh snow in the mountains. This is normal for this time of year. All in all, a great week with many happy guests!
