2004 — Week 33

There was not much change in the weather compared to the previous week, everyday was sunny, very warm and again hardly a breeze. Due to this warm weather some forest fires in the north started to burn again and on some days it was smoky here with poor visibility. In the Yukon we have so far had 256 fires with approximately 1.7 Mio hectares of forest burnt – a record in the history of Canada’s true north. Nevertheless our guests enjoyed the calm and warm conditions as well as the overall good fishing. Again we did very well with the Grayling and Pike but the Laketrout fishing was like the previous week and due to the warm water temperatures quite tough. So far it has been a great year for the Sockeye Salmon fishing and we have had many successful trips to our nearby river in Alaska. The average size of these beautiful fish seems to be bigger than last year with a lot of fish in the range of 8-12 lbs – something we do not mind at all!
