2012— Week 27

Sensational fishing during this week with two new members to our Trophy Club. Aki Keller landed a beautiful Lake Trout of 103 cm. Kurt Wiesinger caught a mighty Pike of 112 cm. Congratulations to both of you and welcome to our Trophy Club! Besides the Pike Trophy Kurt also caught a big Lake Trout of 98 cm, just 2 cm shy of the Trophy mark. We were really doing well with Lake Trout fishing. Many other nice fish in the 80 to 90 cm range were caught either trolling or casting. There was the odd day when they were not active so there is never a guarantee catching these big Lakers. Pike fishing was very spotty, we didn’t get the numbers we usually do. It probably has something to do with the high water and the cooler temperatures. Grayling fishing was great and many were caught on dry flies. Our guests also had great days fishing for Rainbow Trout. Biggest Rainbows were around 50 cm which are nice fish for here as they don’t grow that big in our water systems. All our rivers and lakes are very high which is making the fishing not easier. Nothing we can do about it, this is nature! But as reflected in our great catches we certainly can’t complain. Sometimes you just have to go the extra mile and search other areas for fish than usual. The first King Salmon are showing up and our first trip fishing for them was a success. We had pretty rough weather with cold temperatures. Where is our summer? At the beginning of the week we experienced almost two days of rain. The rest of the week was overcast with mainly windy conditions. So the weather could have been better, but the fishing was outstanding!
