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 to land his first salmon of the week. It was a beautiful fish of 97 cm and approx. 9,5 kg/ 21 lb. He released his fish carefully after taking a quick picture.

Then it was Thomas Mahnke and Poul Petersen who had a really good session on Beat B1. First it was Poul, who was able to land a nice salmon with a weight of approx. 8 kg/ 17 lb. A little bit later also Thomas landed another salmon of approx. 8 kg. Both fish were carefully released.
