The showers on sunday, has kept Gaulfoss above 20 m3/s the last 2 days, which is good.
The met has now - not unsurprising - suddenly warned that the very hot weather might lead to build of of T&L combined With Heavy, local rain in the narrow Valleys in the headwaters of Orkla and Gaula . If so, it will be very welcome (if it rains enough to put up the wildfires which will be started by Lightning). We'll see what happens - usually such showers lead to a very dirty water, and then improved Fishing when it all settles again.
The run into the fjord is good, and a lift of (dirty) water usually encourage an upward migration of both Fish in the rivers and Fish in the estuaries.
Fingers crossed for some Heavy rain ;-)
Dave : I try to concentrate on the Trondheim area here. There are many others in the internet world who can do Finnmark and Kola better than me. I live less than 1 h drive from Orkla, Gaula, Nid and Stjørdal and Fish them all - so that's my home turf ;-)
Yes, B. is a true gentleman indeed, always helpful, and what he does not know about Norwegian salmon is not worth knowing!Lads and Ladies.
Last week myself and a buddy travelled to the Gaula river to fish and needless to say we’re disappointed to discover that the river was closed on the day we arrived. Little did I realize that one member of this forum would ensure that our trip would not be a complete disaster we owe a big thank you to Ursus Nautilus aka Bjorn for giving us invaluable assistance being able to organize help for us to source some fishing on the Orkla.
His assistance was invaluable to ensuring we were able to rescue our weeks fishing that we had been looking forward to for so long.
His phone calls and texts and his kind encouragement in helping two strangers to his country that he had never met.
Without his help we would have been at a serious disadvantage. On our trip water levels and water temperature was against us. We were delighted to have the opportunity to fish the Orkla and we got to see a small section of beautiful Norway, the People were very nice and friendly.
We owe him a deep gratitude, Thanks once again. thank you so much for your invaluable help, you are a gentlemen.
Tightlines for the rest of the season and blessings from Ireland.
