Trout Fishing Report Week 27A – 2015
First Knee Litza and Big Trout Kharlovka.
We started at First Knee Litza and the fishing was disappointing . We did not catch many fish. At the home pool during a mayfly hatch only two fish were rising. These two fish were caught several times during our stay. The weather was cold and windy.
We came to Big Trout Kharlovka with great expectations as I have fished this camp early in the season several times in the past with success. We were not disappointed. From we started fishing on Tuesday we fished to rising fish and caught many. Both caddis and mayflies were hatching. I caught my fish mainly on the Rackelhanan and on No-hackle mayfly imitations. Other flies used by the other group members, with success, were Streaking Caddis, the french Secret Caddis and other mayfly and caddis imitations.
The total number of fish above 1 kg caught by the 5 group members were 107. A couple above 4 kg and many above 3 kg. Three of the group members caught a new personal record size trout. We were all very pleased with the stay at Big Trout.
The 5 group members were: Lars Grøndahl, Roar Kreutz, Christian Bertrand, Ollivier Daurat and group leader Pål Krogvold. The guide/chef was Gena and everyone was very pleased with his cooking and service. Thank you Gena for a great week.
