The conditions are improving, and some nice salmon have been caught on the NFC Beats. 27.06.2019
The conditions are getting better from day to day. The water temperature is rising and the water level on the Gaulfossen dropped to 61 m³/second. So, the salmon are able to pass the Gaulfossen rapids without any problems and therefore also the catches on the NFC Beats on the middle and upper river improved. But also, the fishing on the lower Gaula has been good.
Eric Ottens managed to land a silver salmon of 101 cm on beat E6. Just some time before he already lost one fish and the day before he lost a really big salmon which sadly decided to leave the pool.

As well Heiner Büschen landed a nice fish in beat E6. It looks like this beat improved even more during the last year and it seems like this beat is fishing now in basically all water levels.
Also David Swain, who returned to the NFC water after some years again, had a good week, landing three fish. David landed his first salmon of 90 cm in beat G1. The next salmon he got was 103 cm, from Beat E1. The last fish of the week measured 83 cm from beat BS1. David released all fish carefully.
