The Gaula and our beats are enjoying another good season at the moment. Even if some of the weeks have been suffering by too much rain and water levels way above of what is perfect for our beats, the total results are quite good. The Gaula has produced so far this season, in less than 2 months time, a total of 3.653 salmon, which breaks down into 1.453 large salmon over 7 kg/ 15 ½ lb, 1.923 salmon between 3 kg/ 6 ½ lb and 7 kg/ 15 ½ lb and 277 grilse. Only the last week produced 2,5 t.
