Our season on the Gaula ended on the 31st August – we look forward to season 2018! 15.09.2017
During the last part of the season the runs of fresh salmon were more on the slow side. But on our E Beats there was a chance to catch fresh fish anytime due to their proximity to the sea.

After a longer low water period during the last third of the season the much appreciated rain came around the 20st August, but the fishing improved not as much as we had hoped for. The season on the Gaula overall was a great one. Especially the number of very large salmon was very impressive. During the season 7 fish over 20kg / 44 lb were caught and the largest fish were 24kg/ 53 lb, 23,1kg/ 51 lb. and 21,2kg/ 46 ½ lb.

The registered catch during the 3 month season showed a total of... read more...

Week 29: Another exiting week on the NFC Beats with some big fish landed! 15.08.2017
Week 29 was the first week thus far this season we experienced consistently dropping water levels, and the river finally reached what we would consider a “normal” summer level.

The week started off well with a fish a good session on G1 from our Austrian regulars Robert Heintschel and Franz Hochecker. They landed 3 good fish of approximately 10 kg (22lb), 8kg (17.5lb) and 5.5kg (12lb)!

Also our American guests John Hogaland and John Bleh started off with a bang as well.

John Hogland was able to land and release a 5.6kg (12.3lb) salmon on Monday morning and John Bleh caught his biggest Atlantic salmon thus far at Langøy (B1) – a superb fish of 110cm and ... read more...

Week 28: High water, happy fishermen, and some really BIG fish! 25.07.2017
Week 28 was another week with a lot of rain and very high water levels, the river came up, dropped and came up again right away after a lot of rain fall. But the fish did not seem to mind the rain, and fluctuating river, as the week was filled with many great fish, including the largest fish of the season thus far for the NFC!

July has been a rather untypical summer month on the Gaula, with lots of rain, and cold temperatures. Either way the fishing has been great. Week 28 started with a fish for Takeo Osawa on Beat E2 – a nice fish about 5kg.

The next morning was a good day for our French regular Eric Sovran. As he was able to catch and release a very big fish on Beat ... read more...

Week 27: The Gaula on Fire — Fantastic fishing on NFC waters! 25.07.2017
Week 27 has been a great week for us at NFC! With over 70 fish for the week- the fishing has been on fire all week long. Fish of all sizes have been caught throughout our beats, as well as grilse have been caught in great numbers- signaling the start of the grilse run, which only adds to the fun. The water conditions continue to favor us – yo-yoing between 60 and 150 kbm at the Gaulfossen gauge, which makes for superb fishing on all of our beats.

The first fish of the week was caught by Stephan Dombaj from THE FLYFISHING NATION crew in Tilseth pool (C2), a superb bar of silver measuring 103cm and weighing in at well over 10 kg (22lbs+).

The day continued on well, as the...
