2012— Week 30

It has been another extraordinary fishing week and we are pleased to report a total of 11 Trophies. We would like to welcome the following fishermen to our Lake Trout Trophy Club: Jacob Bollag (100 cm), Josef Bollag (105 cm), Erwin Sommer (105 cm), Robert Glasgow (105 cm, 110 cm), Denis Distilio (110 cm), Michel Chauvin (108 cm), Herve De Kertel (101 cm, 105 cm). Jacob and Josef also caught two big King Salmon of 35 and 37 lbs. Congratulations to all the successful fishermen and well done! Lake Trout fishing has been awesome everywhere we went. There were days you couldn’t keep them off the hook. Although we are experiencing a weaker run of King Salmon than average we did really well fishing for them. Our clients had days when they landed up to 16 Kings. So far only 268 Kings (compared to last year 1087) have gone through the weir. So numbers are way down and we are hoping that it is just a late run. Fishing for Grayling was fantastic in all the rivers we have fished. Our guests caught many nice fish up to 46 cm. It is a lot of fun watching these fish coming up to dry flies in our clear waters. Pike fishing was generally good but no really big ones were caught. With the exception of the last two days of the week we had nice and warm weather with little or hardly any wind at all. It has been a real treat fishing in these conditions! At the end of the week we experienced a thunder storm with heavy rain and winds. But all in all a wonderful week with many happy faces.
