Green Helmet Fly
By: NFC Team On: April 27, 2015 In: Weekly Update

The season opener on the Gaula is just 5 weeks away!

The winter is finally over! Even in Norway, the spring has begun. The snow is melting, and the Gaula Valley is beginning to bloom again. In a few weeks, the NFC team will be back on the banks of our wonderful Gaula river and the salmon fever will catch overcome us once again!

While this winter has been another mild one in Norway, the snowpack is significantly greater than last year and the river has already risen up to around 180 m³ at Gaulfossen in recent days. While we may still get quite a bit of rain in the coming month, with less snowmelt, the water level should drop nicely towards the end of May! This means it also looks like the river will be in good shape for an early start meaning we should expect average water levels for the opening weeks, and if nothing unexpected happens – we can expect to see salmon running throughout the whole river system by 1st of June!

Green Helmet Fly

A Green Helmet – always a good choice early in the season.

What does this mean for you: Those of you who were waiting to see how the weather would develop should now finally start planning your trips. We are hopeful that with good snow conditions, and a mild spring, we will see fish in all of our beats from the season start!

We are fully booked at the Lodge in some weeks and also the whole rotation is booked up in parts of the season, but we still have openings in the early season and even a few in prime time. Also at the backend of the season (which was the best part of the 2014 season) we still have some open rods.

We have reduced our prices for 2015 last fall, especially for the early season and due to the present booking situation, we are even able to give you a special offer of 20% discount for the opening week (1st of June to 8th of June, arrival, 31st of May).

The special prices would be as follows:

NOK 20.400,- (instead of NOK 25.500,-) including Lodge and full board


NOK 15.920,- (instead of NOK 19.900,-) including country house and self-catering

Attention: Please take note that because of the weakness of the Norwegian Krone right now compared to the Euro or the Dollar (and that all of our prices are based on the Krone), these offers are even more attractive! This means for anyone booking from Euro or Dollar currency countries- make sure to take advantage of the extra discounts by booking while the exchange rate is in your favor!

Per Arneberg first fish of the season

Per Arneberg releases NFC’s first fish of the season 2014 on the 1st of June – just below our Lodge.

If we are lucky with the weather- we can expect fish in our beats near the Lodge on June 1st again!

We also still have some available as well in other prime weeks of the 2015 season – so feel free to get in touch with us, and we would be happy to work out some possible options for you as well in one of the other weeks!

We are looking forward to hearing from you and fishing with you during the 2015 season on the Gaula – you are always welcome!

Your team at the

Norwegian Flyfishers Club
