2011— Week 25

Great fishing continued during this week with a total of 11 Pike Trophies being caught. We are pleased to welcome the following fishermen to our Pike Trophy Club: Stefan Kuemin (108 cm), Bill West (116 cm, 114 cm, 112 cm, 109 cm, 108 cm), Derek West (118 cm, 109 cm, 108 cm), Will West (106 cm), Matt West (107 cm). The West Family caught no less than 10 Pike Trophies in one trip, that’s pretty good fishing! Congratulations to all these successful fishermen and well done. Needless to say that the fishing for these large predators was great everywhere we fished. Lake Trout fishing was very productive too and our guests landed several nice fish up to 98 cm. Although a tiny bit short of the Trophy mark these big Lake Trout are just beautiful and very powerful! We have probably reached the peak of the high water levels from the snowmelt and rivers are starting to drop. This is a big benefit especially for the Grayling fishing. We are catching more and more of them at the usual spots in the rivers. Our guests experienced excellent fishing for Rainbow Trout up to 55 cm. Warmer air and water temperatures was good for large hatches of insects and many fish were caught using dry flies. On the first day of the week we had cloudy skies and a strong wind from the south. Then it calmed down and the weather got better and better. The last days of the week were beautiful, no wind and pure sunshine! Great fishing and weather – we couldn’t ask for more…
