Famous for its large Atlantic salmon, the Gaula produces fish over 18 kg (40 lbs) every year.
NFC spearheaded the catch-and-release salmon fishing on the Gaula river. Over 90% of all fish caught are released each year at the NFC.
The NFC was established over 30 years ago with a focus on preserving wild Atlantic salmon fishing on the Gaula River through the establishment of a Norwegian company.
Promote the conservation and protection of wild Atlantic salmon through education, management, and collaboration with salmon conservation organizations.
Advocate the sustainment and growth of the wild Atlantic salmon stock of the Gaula River so that this natural resource can be appreciated for generations to come
As this wonderful fish laid asides me on the gravel of the Guala, I did know, that I had lost my fisherman's heart to this river and it's silver royalties.
Upon arriving in the Storen area, the river and the surrounding area was as beautiful as the photos and videos of the area had portrayed it.
At dusk, slightly after 21 o´clock, the first salmon took my Red Frances with a bang in Island pool. Brought it in after a while and saw a nice cock fish right in the wild eyes before release.
I can now appreciate why anglers return to this great river year after year as there
is a very real chance of a 40lb plus fish.
I would like to return as soon as possible and in due time have my
children to come fishing with me.
After only one week at home, I’m already thinking and even dreaming of my next years trip to the famous river Gaula.
I always had the feeling when fishing down a pool that at any time a monster might take the fly and disappear over the horizon with it!
The Gaula is one of the 'Valhallas' of large Atlantic Salmon and a challenging river to fly fish. It has a strong and healthy run of salmon
