Great fishing continues

Large salmon caught this week by one of our guests from Belgium. (larger version)
This has been a great week of fishing, and it is continuing. Most of our guests this trip have beginner or intermediate skill levels, are not putting a lot of rod time in and they are having great success. The last few days there have been 35-40 fish per day caught by the camp.

We are still seeing some large fish, however this is certainly the middle of the maxi-grilse run. Lots of nice, thick, 5-6 pound grilse. Still seeing some large fish as well. Petra successfully landed and released a lovely 15-16lber yesterday, and there have been bigger hooked.

This has been a very cold July month. There have been fires lit every day of this week. It is a bit chilly for fishing, but it sure has been great for the river. It is still well below 60 degrees F, and the water level is perfect. There is a wide variety of pools to fish, and all the areas on the open river like Al's Pool, Sandbar, and the Slick are producing well. It is dropping 5-6cm a day and at that rate the water level will be good for a while.

So the fishing is excellent, and the outlook for the coming week is good as well. There is some heat and sun in the forecast for this weekend. That will no doubt warm and lower the river a little more quickly.
