Finally after some tough weeks at Oldero Lodge in Norway it looks like the river is starting to clear up on the lower part of the river and the water levels are dropping to more normal conditions. The river is still high for the time of the year, but with this water level we are able to fish more spots then we could just days ago.
We expect the fishing to pick up during the next few days as the river continues to drop into more fishable condition, last week we had some decent fishing, with fish caught and lost throughout the week. The most action we had was Saturday morning when one of our clients and guide had a wild session in the Olderø Home Pool where they had several hook ups and lost two big Atlantic salmon in just one hour of fishing.
This week started very good for the group who arrived on Sunday afternoon with action on all our beats. Four fish were caught, the biggest caught by James Mason Topham on 12.5 kg breaking his personal best Atlantic salmon, well done James.
James works as a professional fishing guide in the Seychelles in the winter and as a salmon guide in Norway during the summer. We are very glad that he has chosen to spend his vacation time fishing Olderø fly fishing waters.
We cross our fingers that the conditions continues to improve, so stay tuned for more updates in the days to come.
