2007 — Week 31

There were many fish very close to the trophy size caught during this week. We had great fishing for Laketrout with flies and lures. Most of the fish were in the slot limit and up to 95cm. We sometimes had a hard time getting a small enough fish for shore lunch, but this is a nice problem to have. Fishing for Grayling was fantastic with fish up to 47cm, just missing the trophy mark by a tiny little bit. Most of them were caught on dry flies and nymphs but smaller lures worked as well. The Grayling are a lot of fun to catch on light tackle. The Rainbow Trout were active too and some really nice fish were caught. One of our clients lost a very big Rainbow when it jumped three times, high out of the water. Pike fishing was productive as well with fish up to 90cm. Unfortunately the Sockeye Salmon run slowed down and we decided not to do any further trips until we will have a better number of fish in the pools. It looks like we are having a little gap in between the run and are confident that we will have great fishing soon. Our guests found the first Boletus of the season and enjoyed this delicacy for dinner. The week started with a mix of sun and cloud and calm conditions. During the rest of the week we had plenty of sunshine and warm temperatures. Unfortunately the wind picked up and we experienced some windy days.
