This week started with some nice catches on our beats even though the water is now getting quite low. But the weather forecast promises strong rain from tomorrow onwards and therefore we expect the water level to increase. This week we have mostly regular guests fishing on our water. Thomas Wölfle from Germany caught the first fish of the new week in the night on Beat B2. This nice salmon weighed in at 7,8kg (17.1lb).
Earlier on the Sunday Chris Tarrant from England played a bigger fish on Beat B2, but sadly the hook lost its grip after a few minutes.
Our Japanese guest Akihide Sugiyama had a great start in the first night on Beat C2 and was able to land his biggest Gaula salmon so far at 9,8kg (21.5lb).
Later on the next morning the Schneid brothers had some great hours on Beat C2; they contacted several fish and were both able to land their first salmon of the week. Siegfried Schneid was able to catch and release a fish which he estimated to weigh about 6kg (13.2lb) and his brother Alex caught a nice fish of 9.2kg (20.2lb).
Johan Wallestad fished with Ivan Page Ratcliff up on our Upper Gaula Beat, and just after 10 minutes fishing Ivan hooked a nice salmon after an explosive take; Ivan landed the fish and it weighed in at 9.3kg (20.4lb).
Last night regular Bruce Lindley fished our Beat B1 and caught and released a nice salmon and a sea trout as well. Bruce estimated his salmon about 7kg (15.5lb).
Also Andre Scholz caught his next fish on our Upper Gaula Beat and released the fish carefully. Andre estimated the salmon to weigh about 7kg (15.5lb).
Joel Benesty from France caught a grilse of 3kg (6.5lb) on our Beat D1, while the Schneid brothers had a great morning again. Siegfried Schneid landing a fish estimated to weigh about 5kg (11lb) on Beat D2; later on the morning he caught his 3rd fish of the week on Beat D1. A perfect fish of 10kg (22lb) and just 100cm in length!
Also Alex Schneid was able to land his 2nd fish this morning on Beat C1, a sea trout of 1,5kg (3.3lb) which was released.
It seems like the main grilse run has not really started yet and we are glad that large salmon and some medium fish are dominating our catches.
