2011— Week 22

After a long winter it is great to post the first news report of the season! We had an unusual cold spring and therefore a late ice-out. Our “home lake” opened up on May 26th which is rather late. Our first guests arrived at the beginning of the week and they experienced great fishing. We didn’t have access to all the waters we usually fish as some of the lakes were still frozen. This will change quickly and we are very confident that from the beginning of next week we will be fishing all our lakes. As always shortly after the ice is gone the fishing was generally excellent. There were no Trophies caught but pretty sure this will change next week as we will have more bodies of water to fish. Lake Trout fishing was great and the best technique was trolling. No monsters were caught but plenty of good sized ones were landed. Fishing for Grayling was excellent and it didn’t matter if our guests used spinning gear or the fly. The Rainbow Trout were also very active and many up to 45 cm were caught. Pike fishing was very productive too as they are always very aggressive after spawning. We had great weather the first half of the week with warm temperatures and hardly any wind at all. The last days of the week were rather windy and overcast. There is still a good amount of snow left on the top of the mountains and the rivers will rise quickly because of the snow melt. The water will stay clear so it will not affect our fishing that much. The fish will just be in different places and with our knowledge we will find and catch them. Overall a very successful opening week!
