Trout Fishing Report Week 28D – 2014

Posted on 12/07/2014

Group members: Henning Haugen, Leif Johansen, Bjørn Uno Østli, Otto Werner Eilertsen, Helge Antonsen (gruppeleder).

We had a great week at the tundra. The weather has been kind to us, the temperature of the river rose from 7 to 13 degrees in the first two days. It was exciting to try a new destination. It is more than 10 km of river to go fishing in, from the end of Kharlovka Lake and down to the next lake.

The river has little falls between these lakes. It consists of several long slow flowting sections. Here were also some pike, Leif caught several in the 2 kilo class.

We have walked and fished our way through most of the stretch of this river. In many places it is dense bush which also hangs out over the river.
