At the start of the season at the Orkla absolute top conditions prevailed. Slightly high water level and a water temperature of about 9 degrees. It rained often throughout June. Partly it was still very cold in the region. Accordingly, we always had excellent conditions for successful fishing in the first half of the season. Unfortunately, these conditions changed drastically in mid-July. Rain fell only very sparse. The temperatures went up and up. Temperatures up to 34 degrees were measured. According to the Norwegian media, this was the hottest summer since measurements were made! The result was that almost all rivers in Norway had very low water levels Also this year, the extreme conditions for some rivers meant that water temperatures exceeded some of the 27-degree critical salmon survival mark. For example, several well-known neighboring rivers had to be completely closed for some weeks. Again, the Orkla was not affected by the lock. The main reason for this is that the Orkla is known to be regulated by power plants, which are obliged to guarantee a certain amount of residual water. This residual water comes from the bottom area of the reservoirs and is colder than the surface water. So the water temperature for the salmon of Orkla could be kept at a tolerable level. Despite the difficult conditions, we are one of the happier salmon fishermen, because on our river, fishing for Atlantic salmon is also promising during such conditions. .
We constantly observe good runs of freshly rising fish in all sizes because the salmon can pull into the Orkla despite low tide. During this difficult time, however, our guests repeatedly reported short drills with salmon. By the end of the season from our guests were over 100 !!! Salmon "Longline released" It's no surprise, because in such water temperatures and low water, the salmon are not very aggressive and are very hesitant. Fact's: A total of 101 salmon with an excellent average weight of 5.91 kilograms were caught on our beats. Our guests landed 6 !! Giants between 11.00 and 14.70 kilograms, 11 fish between 10.00 and 11.00 Kg and some other 44 crackers between 5.00 and 10.00 kilograms. The bigest salmon from our beats had a length of 114 cm (about 14.7 Kg). The excellent quality of our Orkla stretch also shows that our guests were able to catch very large salmon throughout the whole season. Over 90% of the salmon caught here were released. For this exemplary behavior of our guests to the preservation of this exceptional fish, we would like to thank you at this point. Total registered catches at Orkla 2019: 3’767 Salmon / 18'757 Kg The largest salmon had a length  of 128 cm (about 20.9 Kg). .
