Number of Rods: 15.

Number of salmon: 160.
Personal Bests: 5 (Petter 19 pounds, Erlend 23 pounds, Helge with 20 and 22 pounders and Olivia X2 with 5 and 9 pounders!
Things started out a bit slow with bright sunny hot days and air temps in the upper 20′s – however fishing quickly improved with the return the clouds and cooler temps early week – providing several days with 30+ salmon for the group.
This was also the week when everything came just right for the salmon to stack up and leap through the Kharlovka falls disappearing into the prime spawning zones of the vast remote upper river.
There were plenty of highlights including – Big Max who was back again for round II this season on the ASR who released this cracking 27 pounder back into the Secret pool on the upper Litza..
Always a pleasure to see Ulrik and young Cornelius back again and big Congrats to young Olivia who is 23 for catching her fish ever – yesterday she had a new P.B. 9 pounder that slipped back into the water before they could snap a photo..
The ASR wished Helge a big Happy Birthday who along with a big cake with candles was rewarded with 2 P.B.’s of 20 and then 22 pounds..
And a big special thanks to captain Calix for bringing the group together again!
Good fishing with good friends last week on the ASR!
