Great fishing! Total fish landed for the week was 136 fish, of which 43 were over 15 pounds and 3 sea-trout over 20 pounds. The average weight of fish landed was 12 pounds. It was a very nice group of people and very good fisherman.
Top rod of the week was David with 31 fish to the net, his biggest 19 pounds.
Jim and Gordon landed the biggest two fish for the week at 22 pounds each.
Very clear water all week, with some windy days that turned the water cloudy.
Water temperature: 8⁰ – 12⁰ Celsius (46⁰ – 54⁰ Fahrenheit)
Water level: Low, dropping every day.
The wind blew west all week, some days strong reaching up to 70 km (43 mph).
Air temperature ranges through the week: we had low temperatures during the week from 5⁰ – 14⁰ Celsius (41⁰ – 57⁰ Fahrenheit).
We didn’t have any rain and the river is dropping.
Flies that are working the best: Nymphs: Emb, wonder bug, Aurelia prince, prince nymph, rubber legs nymphs, green machine and different sizes of sunray shadows. Big flies for the last hour: Leeches and big tube flies.
Fly lines (tips, heads, lengths, densities, etc.): Skagit heads with different lengths of T-14 and T-11. Scandi lines with poly-leaders worked as well.
