Good conditions on the Gaula and the first fish were caught on the NFC beats above the Gaulfossen 15.06.2021
The conditions on the Gaula have been ideal in the last few days. The water temperature was between 9 and 13 degrees Celsius at the Eggafossen and the water level at the Gaulfossen is currently 109 m³ / second. This means that the salmon have been able to pass the Gaulfossen without any problems for a few days, and so it was only a matter of time before the first salmon have been caught on the NFC beats above the Gaulfossen.

The watercolor was also ideal.
