Unfortunately for our guests that is what happened this week. All was not lost as a bunch of rookies did manage to hook up, and the first day before the river took off rising was good fishing. But, overall it was a very slow few days with most guides reporting only a few hooked each day.
The river has risen nearly 1/2 a meter and while still a very fishable level, we need it to stop rising for fishing action to pick up. The forecast calls for a mixture of showers, chances of showers, and one day of sun a cloud over the next few days. Hopefully most of the rain does not fall on Eagle Plateau. Temperature?: the river is extremely cold for this time of year! 52-53F the last couple of mornings. That's 11-12c! Unheard of cold. Great for the salmon, hard on anglers. We were out in the bay fishing trout and the water temp at Crow Tickle was 54F! Crazy cold river.
We really hope the conditions improve for our next group showing up Thursday, and beyond the conditions we will do everything in our power to guide and host them to a wonderful experience.
