The summer is the season of the midnight sun and a great time to experience Greenland on both land and water. Whales swim along the shores, icebergs flow from calving glaciers, flowers and plants grow at tremendous speeds, hiking trails open up the backcountry, and boats connect the many communities along the coastline. The climate is generally mild and the weather in Greenland is often fine for long spells through this short, fiery season. Longer days and warmer weather spark and begin the reproduction cycle of the searun Arctic Char (Salvelinus alpinus) who then migrate along the coastline und ultimately into the river of their birth to spawn close to the place they have hatched years ago. Our fishing operation opens its gates on the second weekend of July and runs through the first week of September. The short but intense season guarantees the best possible results. Throughout the season, even till the very end of it, fresh fish make it up the river and mix up with the crimson colored males and dark females.
The beginning of the season is predominantly fishing for silver bright and big fish while the progressing weeks will shuffle the deck a bit – numbers will increase dramatically, the challenge to target a big fish in the enormous schools of fish is for the big fish hunters. The variety of places, structures and the splendor of countless fish is almost manic, something to obsess about for sure.
