2010— Week 31

We are very pleased to report the first Trophy Grayling of the season. Lou Acri caught a beautiful Grayling of 48 cm. Along with his Trophy he landed more big Grayling up to 47.5 cm. Markus Kemmer caught a Trophy Pike of 106 cm and his son, Johannes caught two Trophy Pike of 109 cm. They were all caught on flies, which is quite an achievement! Congratulations to all of you and welcome to the Trophy Club. We did two fly out trips to the coast of Alaska. The flight over the very impressive mountains with the highest peaks at more than 5’000 meters is an adventure for itself. The fishing was reasonable, everybody caught a few Sockeyes, lots of Pinks and very nice Dollies. The Sockeye run is almost over and most of the fish have moved to their spawning grounds. Now we are waiting for the Silvers and we expect a good run too. We did one last trip fishing for King Salmon and Jean-Michel caught a big one of 40 lbs on the fly. We will not bother them any longer as they are spawning now. The Grayling fishing was fantastic so was the fishing for Rainbow Trout. It is really nice to see a healthy population of Rainbows. The average size is also bigger than in the last years. Although our Rainbows don’t grow that big, a 55 cm fish would be considered as a big Bow. Pike fishing was great and many big fish were caught on surface lures. Wow, you should have seen these big fish hitting the lures with a huge splash! Fishing for Lake Trout was very good, but we didn’t catch the really big ones. They are now harder to catch as they have moved into deeper areas. It was still productive and one of our guests landed a very nice Laker of 90 cm on the fly. We had beautiful weather and very warm temperatures. We experienced the hottest day of the season at 29° Celsius. The wind was on the calm side, only one day we had stronger winds from the south. All in all a great week with many happy faces.
