Difficult season end on the Gaula Update 11.09.2019 11.10.2019
After the Gaula was closed for almost 14 days, everyone hoped for an August like last year. But also after a significant increase of the water level, the fishing was still very tough in August. Of course, some fish were caught on the NFC Beats, but compared to last year, the fishing remained difficult until the end of the season. We can only guess for what reason. There was less fish in the river this year, but also the higher temperatures until the last days of August did not make the fishing easier. Here is a short summary of the catches until the end of the season:

In the last few days it has been raining in the Gaula valley and the water temperature dropped significantly. At the Eggafoss the water temperature was around 15 degrees. The water level at the Gaulfossen went up from 8.1 m / second at the to 17.6 m / second on 08.08.2019. It looks like the river will continue to rise in the next few hours.

It should continue to rain from Sunday evening, according to todays weather forecast we should get until Tuesday evening about 35mm of rain, for Friday the forecast promised 14mm, which hopefully sho... read more...

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.
