The Gaula River is well known for its big salmon in addition to large quantities of medium size salmon and grilse – averaging around 8,000 salmon during the three months season (June to the end of August). The average weight is around 4.5 kilos per fish. Throughout the whole season there is always the chance to catch the big one.
Gaula Salmon has the joint fishing rights on the Malum/Winsnes beat(s) and a number of additional beats in co-operation with Gaula Fly-Fishing Friends. The Gaula Salmon rods will participate in a rotating fishing system with a total of 16 rods, being offered 8 large/long pools and 6 hours fishing on each pool. The beat is based 10 - 20 kilometres up river from the village of Støren and approximately 50 - 60 kilometres from the sea. The Gaula Salmon beats are among the best on the Gaula with approximately 250 to 350 good size salmon per season.
The average weight is approximately 5 - 6 kilos per salmon. There are exceptions, as in the year 2005 when the fishing started very late due to extreme high water conditions at Gaulfoss further down the river.
Fly rods should be 14 - 16 feet with action to suit 10 or 11 lines, 9/10 in low water. Lines floating through intermediate and sinking. Flies and tubes to suit individual preference but towards medium and larger sizes. Normal warm clothing for fishing but take an extra sweater for a chilly night. Chest high waders with felt soles. Life jackets and wading sticks are recommended.
Winsnes Farm and Fly-Fishing Lodge has been a home to the Winsnes family for hundreds of years. Traditionally a farm, today it is a modern guesthouse and fishing lodge offering full and half board accommodation and activity packages.
