2012— Week 28

What an incredible fishing week with a total of 8 Trophies being caught! Lake Trout fishing was outstanding and we are pleased to welcome the following fishermen to our Trophy Club: Christian Kurt (100 cm), Jan Schneider (102 cm), Peter Hofer (103 cm), Lukas Von Gunten (102 cm), Roland Gautherat (105 cm), Maurice Bihr (107 cm). Patti Kelvin landed a huge Pike of 115 cm and Aki Keller a big King Salmon of 35 lbs. Congratulations to everybody and well done! The King Salmon run is in full swing right now and we were catching many nice fish. It is a big battle fighting these Salmon in a strong current and many times the fish is the winner. Most of our rivers are still running high but we did excellent fishing for Grayling and Rainbow Trout. Our guests caught many big Grayling close to the Trophy Mark of 48 cm. We had fantastic days with dry flies for both species. Pike fishing was like last week spotty. We had some great days and then other days we were struggling getting numbers. It was a very busy week for us as the Lodge was fully booked. The fishing overall was outstanding and it was nice to see many happy faces. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t as good as the fishing. Temperatures were still below average. It was a windy week too with the exception of the last day of the week. One evening we had a big storm with the result of many fallen trees on our property. We were lucky that we didn’t have any damages to equipment of houses.
