2006 — Week 30

This week we hosted members of a large Canadian company who enjoyed having privacy as they rented the whole Lodge. We did catch some Trophies during the week: A Pike of 101cm and a massive King Salmon of 117cm with an estimated weight of 45lbs. As mentioned in earlier reports the King run was very late and the numbers are down compared to previous years. The run is almost over now and we will not be doing any more trips as these Fish are ready to spawn. Sockeye Salmon fishing in our nearby river in Alaska improved a lot. There were many Fish in the pools and the river was in mint condition. Almost all our guests limited out and many big Sockeyes up to 12lbs were caught. Fishing for Grayling and Rainbow Trout was excellent too and plenty of Fish came to the dry fly. Fishing for Pike and Laketrout remained very good overall. The week started with bad weather, it rained and it was windy. The last days of the week saw nice and warm weather and mainly calm conditions. Overall a very successful week with many happy faces!
