Here are the figures for June in 2018 and 2019 for the two rivers:
Orkla: 2018 June 1086, 2019 June 1029. (2020 June 1560)
Gaula: 2018 June 1257, 2019 June 1218. (2020 June 1647)
so a better year this June for both rivers. The water levels have been on the high side but are now dropping fast!

Follow up on the Tennis match between Orkla and Gaula, second set (July month)
Orkla: 1284 catches sofar this month.
Gaula: 1611 catches sofar this month.
water levels, as I write: Gaula 100 cbm/s, Orkla 60 cbm/s
To be fair, it is right to mention that the fishing pressure and number of rods fishing is higher on the Gaula. But here we are!

At the end of the second set (July), the match between the Gaula and the Orkla, in terms of catches, looks like this:
July by 31st @8.00pm Gaula 3358 catches, Orkla 3307 catches
Year 2020 with one month to go: Gaula 5011 catches, Orkla 4913. This shows a solid improvement for both rivers compared to the last two full preceeding years: 2019 (Gaula 3405 catches, Orkla 3423 catches) 2018 (Gaula 4944 catches, Orkla 3859 catches).
In fairness, one has to notice that the run on both rivers up to now this year is mostly made of grilse and 2SW fish ( rounded average weight Gaula 11Ibs, Orkla 10Ibs). But some solid fish in between with a 53 Ibs from the Gaula, fish of this size being very seldom!
Exciting to see the Match results at the end of August! :p

Well, as I suggested in my last input forecast, the Orkla won the last set of the match and the match itself!
August catches read as 1487 for the Orkla and 1087 for the Gaula. The overall results for the season are Orkla: 6462, Gaula: 6157. Naturally, there will be some further late catch registration, but overall the Orkla takes the top of the podium!
Just nine months for the next tournament! :p

That was very interesting, very good numbers...reading it back there it was a bit like the US presidential election!!!....
Did Gaula not forward any postal Fish???..

Anyway 2020 did not happen for me in Norway...but I’m looking forward to 2021 and perhaps to finally get to wet a line in the Gaula...it’s bizarre to think that since 2018 I’ve had a fishing trip organised each summer to Gaula and for various reasons have yet to cast a line in that river....!!!
We are travelling earlier in 2021, basically the first 10 days in July and we are doing a short trip to Stjordal for 3 days and then to the Gaula...
So hopefully thing will have improved in regards this pandemic and everyone will get to enjoy their fishing and hosting their guests and the fish will be there. Thanks to the contributors on this section in keeping us updated.
