Difficult fishing due to high water temperature and temporary closure of fishing on the Gaula 30.07.2019 03.08.2019
After the coldest start to the month of July since 1902 in parts of our region Trondelag an astonishing turnaround on very warm weather took place. Meanwhile, the heat wave from Europe has the Gaula under control. Even if the water level is still at 21 m / second on the Gaulfossen, the water temperature has already risen to over 20 degrees. This has led the river administration to stop fishing on the Gaula at 12 noon on Friday 26th July. As soon as the water temperature drops, the fishing on the Gaula continues.

This kind of fishing stop is very rare on the Gaula.
It is very surprising that despite the high water temperature and the relatively low water level, a good num... read more...

After some high water in the beginning of July the water level is now constantly dropping. 17.07.2019 02.08.2019
In June the water level was relatively high and in the first week of July some more rain raised the river to more than 200 m / second at the Gaulfossen. So it was not really surprising that the new week started off very promising. Hernan Garcia landed a big fish of 99 cm and 10.5 kg/ 23.1 lb on Beat BS1. Unfortunately, the fish was bleeding heavily, so that Hernan had to kill it. Also Robert Ramisch was successful on Beat G1 and landed a grilse of about 2.5 kg/ 5 lb, which he released carefully.

Still difficult fishing on the Gaula but the average weight is still high. Update 05.07.2019 02.08.2019
Since our last update the water level dropped constantly, and the fishing got a bit easier. We have been able to take the heavy sinking lines off the reels and the much lighter lines have been a much better choice for many of the NFC Beats. After we experienced some very good fishing on the NFC Beats in the Storen area it was only a question of time until these fish will reach the beats in Kotsoy. And so, it was not surprising that a good amount of fish has been recorded from the Beat BS1 in the following days.

Andreas Grass and Ulli Dorfner fished together in BS1 and both lost a nice fish. After some time, Andreas hooked another fish and after an exciting fight he managed ... read more...
