Exploring the wild

Sunday, May 2nd, 2010

Instead of fishing the San I’ve spent the long weekend up high in the mountains hiking and fishing some little streams. I was absolutely surprised by amount and quality of fish caught in really tiny creeks like the one on the picture. Some places were really scary, with more footprints of bears, wolves and deer than you could imagine.

Finally!

Saturday, May 1st, 2010

Finally river dropped to it’s perfect level (1 turbine running) and the fishing became possible.

Still high

Sunday, April 25th, 2010

River is still high although has nicely cleared. Grayling stay around the places where have spawned, trout seem to sleep.

Ugly

Wednesday, April 14th, 2010

Weather is ugly, river still high and cold. Grayling starts getting in big number around usual spawning places, however the spawning itself hasn’t started yet. Trout still not very active, but some of them attempt to rise to little duns and march browns present on the surface.

Storks

Tuesday, April 6th, 2010

I forgot to write earlier – storks came back and are now allover the place, repairing nests and eating all that looks crunchy. This one pictured here was kind of strange as I met him on the side of the road in dense forest – you usually see these birds on fields and open space… Was that an Easter hangover??

Water rise

Monday, April 5th, 2010

Water level has risen becoming too high to fish with pleasure. Grayling start gathering in usual spawning places – we’ve been watching some big fish yesterday.

Preparation to the season

Friday, April 2nd, 2010

Preparing ourselves to the new season includes some changes in the lodge as well as launching our own meat processing factory :-)
Since 2010 we will be serving only home made sausages,  hams and bacons prepared and smoked in the lodge, basing on my grandfather’s recipes. We are fulfilling our policy of serving only natural and first quality food.

Medium water level

Thursday, April 1st, 2010

Didn’t wake the fish up really. Water temperature is still between 4-5 degrees.

Springtime

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010

All the snow is gone now. Beautiful weather with up to 18 degrees make everyone happy except for anglers – cold blue waters from the melting snow make fishing very hard and certainly doesn’t warm you up. Few more days I hope.

More snow and water
