And the NFC, while late to the game, finally had a great kick off today!
The start of the 2017 salmon season on the lower Gaula has been excellent for the first few days of the season. Kicking off with some really big fish landed, for example a monster salmon of 23,1kg (50.9lbs) caught just below our E3 Beat, which is a new record salmon for the Gaula for the last 30+ years! As well as another 21kg (46lbs) fish, and many fish over 15 kg (30+lbs) have been landed thus far. The river, which until May 31st, was very high due to snow melt, and nearly unfishable, dropped into perfect early season condition, and the catch results are proof.
Unfortunately, up until now, our fishermen simply have not been very lucky during the opening days. While fish were hooked, we lost a good number of fish but never managed to land any until today….when the tables turned!
