Good fly water on the middle reaches of the River Gaula, near Storen.
It's always good to see sea-trout running a salmon river and the latest report on the Norwegian Flyfishers’ Club Gaula website shows a photo of a nice 5lb sea-trout caught by fly-dresser and creator of sharp and strong salmon fly-hoooks, Ken Sawada. Ken caught his sea-trout the week before last at the NFC beats of the Gaula (beat E3). A nice 6lb sea trout was caught by Daniel Stephan also.
Overall fishing was held up by the big flood of last week where heavy rain melted snow in the mountains. But fishing now is back to its pre-flood form albeit mostly on the lower, E beats and new beat L1.
Expect explosive salmon action when salmon do pass up the Gaulfossen in numbers and hit the Støren (middle river) beats.
Also last night saw the St Hans day showing of the Anton Hamacher and Daniel Göz film, Gaula River of Silver & Gold in Stören and I trust and hope that went really well. Certainly it was shown to a sell-out audience of hard-core salmon junkies!
