NEW FIGURES even before the season’s end yesterday show that of 200 salmon released and tagged after capture on the River Gaula below Gaulfossen this season, 30 per cent have been re-caught by anglers. The figure is even more surprising when compared with equivalent data on neighbouring river that flow into the huge Trondheim-fjord basin.
On the Orkla the figure of re-caught tagged fish is eight per cent. And on the 22-miles of angling effort on the Verdal River, including its tributary Inna, the figure is just eight per cent. The immediate implication of the above figures are to reveal a greater angling pressure on the Gaula than on many of the other 30 rivers that flow into the basin.
