NORWAY: last Gaula river salmon fishing report
ere the last fishing report from Atlantic salmon fishing in Gaula river in Norway. "The fishing on the entire river and as well on our Beats is still challenging these days, but our fishermen are still fishing hard and some are being rewarded with beautiful fish, like angler Bernd Kuleisa on our Beat B1. After an exiting fight he was able to land a superb male fish of 10,2 kg (22,5 lbs). Bernd had to keep it, as the fish was bleeding badly and could not be revived. Werner Steinsdorfer from Germany also had luck on his side! He landed a nice salmon of 8.6 kg (19 lbs). The fish had serious injuries on the fins and also on the scales; so Werner thought that it might be an escaped farm fish, and therefore he kept it – scale samples have been sent to the authorities, so we should know more about it in a short time. Two days later Werner was lucky again and caught and released another nice fish estimated to weigh about 6 kg (13lb). Ralph Warnke caught another big fish on Beat B2, which he estimated to weigh about 10 kg (22 lb). Ralph was fishing on his own, so we do not have a picture as he released his salmon carefully.
