JAN2nd  – JAN9th, 2010

O V E R A L L   C O N D I T I O N S : We were fortunate to arrive when the water already dropped its level. The water was very high and muddy most of December.  The air temperature rounded from 5 to 15 degrees celcius. No rain.

R I V E R   C O N D I T I O N S :  Water level was very good during the whole week, dropping only a few centimeters a day.

F I S H I N G : The season started pretty well. The first day of fishing was right after the highest ties of January were over (full moon). There were lots of fresh and fat fish coming into the river during the high tie. Most of the catches were in pools that had a lot of logs in the water,  resulting in a good quantity of fish being lost. All of the fish were bright, silver and ready to make your drag burnt.

Sinking tips and floating lines were used this week, ranging from 2 to 5 inches per second. Mid sized and small flies were used, such as wonder bug.

More of half of the fish caught this week was after the sun was already down the mountains.

The size of the fish landed ranged from 5 to 22 pounds.

T O T A L  C A T C H E S : Three rods fishing 6 days caught 29 sea trout averaging 11 pounds and 1 of them 22 pounds, which was the biggest of the week.

E X T R A S : Robalo fishing was very successful during this week. A couple of hundred fish were caught, ranging from 3 to 9 pounds.

Theres no words to explain how fishing has been this last 45 days on the Limay river, it has shown us that we have one of the best brown trout rivers in Patagonia and maybe one of the best in the world.

Water level still above average, but weather has been magnific, very little wind and warm weather.  We have also caught our first browns in La Boca !! We changed our tackle also, from  using sinking lines in the very beginning of the season, we have changed to floating and floating with small sinking tips, it´s amazing to see this huge fish taking the flies almost in the surface.

We have also floated the river a couple of times and again, big trouts were there ! We have both broken our personal record of landlocked Brown trout, please check out this pics, I´m quite sure you will enjoy them!

Unluckily water level has dropped and fishing still pretty good! We haven´t  hooked as many fish as in the very beginning of the season but the biggest fish were caught these last days.

Check out these Pics and enjoy!

I’ve finally arrived at the steelhead promise land, the Mecca, Vahalla & Shangri-La for steelheaders the world over. I’ve been dreaming of fishing the Skeena & its tribs ever since I started steelhead fishing some 10 years ago. Now that I’m finally here, I’ve been seriously humbled after 3 skunks in a row on the river. It just reminds me that steelhead fishing is never easy, even here. At least somebody is getting monster fish, which gives me renewed faith to keep my fly in the water. After the snow melts and we can drive again, hopefully my luck will change.
