It’s now spawning time on the Gaula – and the right time to book in for season 2012! Fish a free prime weekend* (3 days)!

Oct. 27, 2011, 7 p.m.

A few salmon in full spawning colour, photographed during the last two weeks by our film team, which just finished their last shots for our new Gaula movie coming up next spring. After our season finished on the 31st of August, the Gaula rested in peace and the salmon are changing their outfit and starting to prepare for spawning. Some late runs usually fill up the system and once the temperatures drop around mid October and the first snow falls on the mountain tops, the salmon get into the spawning mood ...

Slow backend following the 100-years-flood

Sept. 6, 2011, 7 p.m.

During the last week the fishing was by no means easy. Whilst in most years the backend often brings rain after a low water period causing fish to start to move and respond well to our flies – this year was different. After longer periods with too high water – not least the 100-year-flood reported previously here – we had to admit that despite a good water level the fish were rather reluctant in the face of our fishing efforts ...

The newly started week began with further heavy rainfalls in the whole Gaula valley and it did not take long until the Gaula started to rise significantly.

Unfavourable water conditions on the Gaula – some difficult days with rising water just when ideal water levels are reached

July 30, 2011, 7 p.m.

Last week we experienced the same problem as during some of the weeks before: Just when the Gaula had reached a ideal water for most of our pools strong rain came up again and the rising water and the following unfavourable medium water height spoilt the fishing by causing fish to run and run and run. The salmon were taking flies half heartedly or not at all. Only during some periods the catch results were better ...

Improved fishing on the NFC Beats - 14 fish landed on July 8th

July 9, 2011, 7 p.m.

After the rain the river dropped quickly. As soon we reached a good level which is about 60 m³/s water flow at the Gaulfoss and just below 40 cm at the Froseth gauge, the running salmon slowed down and started to take flies seriously again. In the evening of the 7th of July the river was in its best condition and Enzo Hamann from Germany caught a fish on Beat D2 which weighed in with 4,5kg (10lb) ...

A great day on the NFC Beats…and still more fish to come…

June 21, 2011, 7 p.m.

Already by yesterday the season had shown a significant improvement – and we can say it has really started now.

The day started with success by John Klein, who caught and released a salmon of approx. 5kg (11lb) on Beat D2, shortly before Yngve Landro and Eilif Eckhof each lost a good fish on the same Beat as well ...

Ideal water levels and an exciting start to the new week

June 19, 2011, 7 p.m.

A clear improvement of the situation has taken place.

Good conditions after the flood, but it is still not easy…

June 16, 2011, 7 p.m.

However, some of our fishermen caught some beautiful fish and also reports from other parts of the river getting better!

A real flood at the start of the new week

June 12, 2011, 7 p.m.

The fishing during the last two days of Week 23 has still been tough even though our fishermen reported more fish seen and some contacts and lost fish from our pools.

Some tough days on the Gaula – but now the fishing seems to improve!

June 8, 2011, 7 p.m.

The fishing on the 6th and 7th of June has been pretty tough. During the first days some fish were caught on various lower beats, but most have been in the river for a while and did not carry sea lice. Most of these fish have been slowly progressing through the pools above Gaulfossen into the middle reaches and even higher ...

The next salmon on the NFC Beats is landed

June 1, 2011, 7 p.m.

The first 2 days have been a bit slow on our beats, but conditions seem to improve. Some warmer weather on the 2nd of June will bring the water temperature up one or two degrees, from which fly fishing should benefit nicely. Our guests and guides have seen a couple of fish in the middle reaches and we got reports from Guides at the Gaulfossen that fish are passing ...

The Gaula season 2011 has started – the first fish on the NFC Beats is landed!

May 31, 2011, 7 p.m.

Season 2011 on the Gaula started at midnight of the 31st of May. Nine month of waiting have passed by and the well known faces of our early season regulars and a few new anglers showed up to fish the exiting season start on our Beats. The conditions on the season - opening have not been as good as the promising last days indicated beforehand ...

It looks promising for the season start - the conditions on the Gaula are very good at the moment!

May 28, 2011, 7 p.m.

A part of the NFC team is already on the Gaula and preparing our beats and pools for the opening and the following weeks. The conditions during the last days have been pretty good, the water temperatures in the middle reaches around Støren has been improving to approx 7 degrees (6,9 °C at midday 27th of June at Beat B2) for the last couple of days, on the Lower Gaula it used to be even a bit warmer (1 or 2 °C!) – These are excellent temperatures for the start! The water level at the Frøseth Gauge is right now 1,05cm (waterflow on Gaulfossen is just below 160m3 per sec. ) In these conditions we have no doubt that salmon have passed and actually are passing the Gaulfossen, this means we should have fresh salmon in several of our pools around Stören and Rognes ...

Only six weeks to go until the 2011 Gaula fishing season!

April 20, 2011, 7 p.m.

The spring in Europe has started strongly – several warm days have passed by and salmon fishers are getting into the right mood and anticipating new exciting encounters with big salmon on the Gaula.

The temperatures in the areas around Singsas have been around 10 – 14°C and for next Friday and Easter splendid weather conditions are expected ...

What to expect in season 2011?

Feb. 15, 2011, 6 p.m.

The major background to our expectations for season 2011 is to be found in the spawning that took place in the past seasons 2004, 2005 and 2006. Season 2004 was the last year before the historic buy-out of the "kilenöter" (bag nets) in the Trondheim Fjord but it was nevertheless a strong season on the Gaula with a total catch of close to 28 tons. Medium sized 2 sea-winter salmon accounted for 51% of the annual catch; large salmon made up 34% of the catch and grilse only 15% of the numbers of fish caught ...
