Good run on the Gaula with big numbers of grilse From 31.07.2020 18.08.2020
A lot has happened on the Gaula since our last update. The weather conditions are excellent for fishing. The lowest water level so far was 50 m3 / second (Gaulfossen) and frequent rain showers have caused the Gaula to rise again and again. In the last week the river rose to 306 m3 / second on the Gaulfossen.

The weather forecast for the coming days is also very promising. The temperatures are usually between 14 and 22 degrees. Also one or the other rain shower will ensure that the river will maintain a very good water level. There is no indication of low water like in previous years at the moment!

At the moment there are mostly grilse which are caught by the guests on th... read more...

Norway is opening the borders for tourists and still good fishing on the Gaula From 31.07.2020 18.08.2020
Finally, Norway has opened the borders for tourists from many EU countries, including Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium and the Netherlands, from July 15, 2020. In addition, the almost tropical temperatures in Norway have now been gone for about 14 days and the river offers excellent conditions for fly fishing.

Due to constant rain showers and rather low temperatures, the water level is currently around 100 m per second in Gaulfossen and is dropping very slowly. There are more rain showers in the forecast for the coming days. The water temperature is not too high either, it is currently between 10 and 13 degrees.

The relatively promising conditions have also led to...

The fishing has improved significantly and the fish have been passing the Gaulfossen from 01.07.2020 05.08.2020
In the last few weeks, the weather on the Gaula has been characterized by very warm temperatures and bright sun. The thermometer partly rose to over 30 degrees, which is absolutely unusual for Norway in June.

This heat wave caused intensive melting of the snow in the mountains and this caused a very high water level for three weeks. In the early afternoon, the melting snow made the Gaula rise and during the night the river started to drop again due to reduced temperatures, an everyday Yoyo effect. It is unbelievable how a natural river, that is not developed for hydro electricity generation, varies in the water flow. During the Easter days, the Gaulfossen measured 40 m / s... read more...

Difficult conditions on the Gaula but the first fish were caught on the NFC Beats from June 17th 2020 05.08.2020
Many of you might wonder why we still have not published any pictures of catches. This is, of course, primarily due to the fact that most of the guests usually come from abroad and this has not been possible so far due to Covid 19.

Unfortunately the long-lasting flooding of up to 900 cubic meters per second at the Gaulfossen has exposed some clay fields, making the water in the lower Gaula extremely murky. The visibility was often only 15-20 cm and unfortunately made fishing on the E Beats almost impossible. In Lundamo on Beat L1, the water is also murky, but the visibility is significantly better here. Manfred Raguse was able to hook a large fish there on June 12, but lost... read more...
