Kharlovka web report for week 32 ending 10th of August 2018
At last! The heat wave finally let up just days before youth team arrived for what would turn out to be a most jolly and productive fishing week. Temps really started to heat up about 10th of July this season which led to an extended period of bright sunny skies and water temps rising over 20C. While the rivers remained at record low levels, thankfully everything cooled back down just before the young lads arrived who were blessed with mild conditions for the week with temps ranging from about 10 to 15C.
Needless to say the cool cloudy conditions led to some fantastic results with the team landing 153 salmon on the week. While this was a week of experimenting with everything in the box – Sun Ray Shadows, Bombers and the Red Francis turned out to be the most affective patterns.
Personal Bests included:
Mark Blundell – 4lbs – first ever salmon
Nick Grimshaw – 16 lbs
Max Ropner – 19 lbs
Florian – 20 lbs from Secret Pool
Arthur – new PB of 28 pounds from Flat Stone
Mark Speelman with a 30 pounder from Reindeer Rapids – also the biggest fish of the week.
Congrats to all the boys. Thanks for an entertaining week with good friends and good fishing! Nastarovia!
