2004 — Week 29

The nice, calm and warm weather continued with only one day with a little breeze from the south. Due to the unchanged weather conditions the danger for forest fires remains very high. There have been 197 fires in the Yukon burning over 1’250’000 hectares of forest. Right now there are 166 active fires. Our local area has fortunately not been affected and the visibility has improved. The fishing continued to be excellent although no Trophies were caught - but you can’t expect such a big fish every day. A fly-out trip to Dry Bay, Alaska was successful too, with many silver Sockeye Salmon. Our guests also caught plenty of Sockeyes in our nearby river in Alaska and many Kings came to the fly in our local rivers. The Grayling fishing saw a lot of surface activities which made the fly fishermen happy. Our guests did really well with surface lures for Pike – what a thrill to see these predators grabbing the lure on the surface! Wildlife watching was good too, with a whole bison herd, Moose, Bears and lots of Eagles.
