Trout Fishing Report 3C – 2018

From left Harald Oterholt, Gena (chef), Svein Røbergshagen, Marius Warnken, Pål Asbjørn Jørgensen, Jon Erlend Dahlen. We arrived the fabolous Pina River on a bright sunny evening, mentally leaning on a description of the seasonal progression just as it used to be in the old days. In other words pretty much normal. The weather good, the temperature nice and the water level at midpoint, not high, not low. and a water temp of 13 degrees. Well, there is no reason to believe...

The rivers followed suit dropping 9cm and warming into the low...

Rynda week 29 ending 20th of July 2018

This week we all will remember as a week with extremely difficult weather conditions. Clear blue skies and hot south wind made the water temp steeply risen from 15 to 20.5C. Together with the low water level, such circumstances required persistence from our anglers along with an individual fishing approach. And of course, Luck is a good thing to have. This week we were fishing with our good friends. Most of these anglers we know for many years and we are always happy to...

Rynda week 28 ending 13th of July 2018

This week Rynda camp welcomed our good friends and regular anglers from England. We have been fishing together for many years and we enjoyed such a great team!

From Thursday the weather changed to sun and south wind. As we now know, that hot was the beginning of the huge hot wave which covered the...

Trout Fishing Report 3D – 2018

Canoeing Rynda river. We started the canoe trip at Torismann lake. The weather was nice and warm. There were not many insects hatching the first two days, but enough mayflies to give everybody fun dry fly fishing. The third day we had an enormous caddis hatch, with no fish rising. Even flies fished deep were rejected. On Tuesday evening we decided to move about 7 km downstream. On Wednesday the weather changed with winds and some rain. This gave us a very good day of dry...
