Spanning over 145 km from its headwaters in the high mountains near the village of Holtalen to where it joins the sea in the Trondheim Fjord, the Gaula is a wild, free-flowing river. Second only to the Tana (which is over 10 times longer) in catch, the Gaula is not only one of the most consistently productive salmon rivers in Norway, but in the world. The river supports healthy stocks of some of the largest Atlantic salmon; 20-pound Gaula salmon are not uncommon and many grow to over 30 lbs and some will top 40. • • • July is prime time on the Gaula, in terms of both quantity and quality. The month provides the best overall opportunity for both size and numbers of fish. Typically water levels stabilize and fish can be found in all reaches of the NFC beats. • • • The Gaula is truly a river of dreams, the place to try for the "fish of a lifetime."
