December

4th of December

Normally we should have had a lot of snow and ice in this area in December. We have had temperatures down to 20 C degrees below zero earlier this Autumn, but now we have had a period of temperatures above zero. Even if the water is very cold (about 1 C degree) the graylings are eating a little. This phenomen makes life worth living for a fisherman!

November

16th of November

Since there has been no fishermen on Gjerfloen Flyfishing for more than a month, I went out with my fly rod today just to prove that it is possible to make the graylings take a fly even if there are some snow flakes in the air and the water temp. is +2C degrees and the air temp. is +1C degree. In a couple of hours with czech nymph fishing method I landed 10 nice graylings up to 41 cm (all released of course). A nice fishing trip, but you do not wade out just dressed in a T-shirt this time of the year,... on the other hand, I can guaratee there are no mosquitoes disturbing.

October

15th of October

Waterflow 75 m3/s this morning. Fishing conditions are very good at the moment. We have had cold nights, but nice days the last week and this is predicted to continue for some more days. This means that we shall have good fishing in the afternoon the comming days when the sun has warmed up the air and water a little.

7th of October

Water flow down to 88 m3/s this morning. Fishing conditions are beginning to be quite good again and the graylings are in the eating mood!

3rd of October

Water flow 100 m3/s this morning. The water is still high, but clear and the graylings must have food. However, even if the fishing conditions at the moment not are optimal, it is possible to have quite nice fishing.

September

30th of September

Water flow 108 m3/s this morning. The water is still high, but test fishing today showed that the graylings are there and they are eating!

27th of September

Water flow 112 m3/s this morning. The flow is expected to incease a lot during the day as we have had 27 mm of rainfall since yesterday afternoon. Fishing conditions are very bad at the moment.

25th of September

Water flow very rapidly down again to 115 m3/s this morning. Fishing conditions this weekend are now depending on how much rain we get on friday.

24th of September

48 mm rainfall since Saturday has brought the water flow up to 180 m3/s this morning. Conditions for flyfishing in the high and cloured water are therefore at the moment very bad. Some improve are expected towards the week end.

21st of September

Some rain last night brouhgt the waterflow up to 55 m3/s today. Good fishing this week end and the water level is perfect for wading.

18th of September

Water flow down to 52 m3/s this morning. Fantastic conditions for flyfishing on the lower part of Gjerfloen fly zone.

17th of September

Fantastic conditions for fly fishing on the down stream part of Gjerfloen at the moment. Water flow down to 54 m3/s this morning. Czech nymph fishing method is superior, but in the afternoon it is possible to catch something also with dry fly.

14th of September

Water flow also 58 m3/s this morning. Very good fishing conditions, but no fishermen on the fly zone this week end. May be one of the reasons is that bird hunting season has started.

12th of September

Water flow down to 58 m3/s this morning. Very good fishing conditions and the temperatures in air and water are perfect for the graylings.

10th of September

Water flow down to 62 m3/s this morning. Very good fishing conditions and fantastic grayling fishing in the Trysil river at the moment. Since the beginning of September we have had nice weather and and perfect water level. This weekend we had the championship on Gjerfloen Flyfishing and aprox. 200 fishes were landed. Monday and Tuesday I've been fishing also and I must say: I've been fishing this river nearly 50 years, but very seldom had better fishing than just now! Let's hope that this weather continue for a long time. See pictures on the photo gallery page.

6th of September

Water flow down to 65 m3/s this morning. Very good fishing conditions and and reports from fishermen tell that it's been good fishing all over the river today. On the slow parts it's even been good dryfly fishing. On the downstream part of Gjerfloen Flyzone Czech nymph fishing has given best result.

4th of September

Water flow down to 68 m3/s this morning. Fishing conditions are very good. I am really looking forward to see what the best flyfishers in Norway can do this week end!

3rd of September

Water flow down to 72 m3/s this morning. Nymph- and dry fly fishermen from Germany, Poland and Holland had good fishing on the fly zone also today. Perfect watertemp. and waterlevel near the normal are finally making the fishing conditions very good again. Predicted nice weather the comming days should generate optimal fishing!

2nd of September

Water flow down to 74 m3/s today. As a result of warmer weather today, we have had the best fishing on Gjerfloen Flyfishing for a long time. Before noon czech nymph fishing technique was superior. Later in the afternoon there were even good dry fly catches. See also the photo gallery page.

1st of September

Water flow down to 76 m3/s this morning. 4 Swedish flyfishermen from Borås had some nice catches during the week end.

August

31st of August

Water flow down to 77 m3/s this morning. Fishing conditions are beginning to be quite good again even if the water still is a little high for this time of the summer.

30th of August

Water flow down to 79 m3/s this morning. Mauro and José did not succeed too well the afternoon two days ago, but now we have got better temperature than we have had for a long time and yesterday evening I saw some risings again for the first time in two weeks.

28th of August

Water flow same as yesterday, 85 m3/s. Two fishermen on the fly zone today, Mauro from Italy and José from Peru. Catch reports tomorrow.

27th of August

Water flow down to 85 m3/s this morning. Even if the weather forecast predict some rain showers the comming days, I think we shall have a decreasing water flow.

25th of August

Water flow down to 88 m3/s this morning. The flow is still 20 m3/s more than normal for the time being, but if we don't get more rain the conditions will improve every day. Anyway, the fish must have food!

24th of August

Some rain kept the water flow stable on 90 m3/s during the week end. Gjerfloen Flyfishing have been full booked through the week end. Traditional fly fishing did not worked very well under the high water conditions, while those who practised czech nymph fishing had success. See pictures on the photo gallery page.

22nd of August

Flow down to 90 m3/s this morning. The fly zone is full booked till Sunday 24th.

21st of August

Stable water flow on 93 m3/s the last couple of days. Water temp 15 degrees C and clear water. Alltogether the fishing conditions are OK even if the water is higher than normal for this time of the summer.

19th of August

Flow down to 93 m3/s this morning. The river is fishable and the graylings must have food now and then!

18th of August

Water flow down again to 98 m3/s this morning. This means that the river still is high for this time of the year, but it is absolutely fishable. Heavy nymphs are the best choice for the graylings at the moment.

15th of August

The heavy rain we have had the last couple of days, more than 70 mm, has brought the flow up to 107 m3/s this morning. High and coloured water today is not good for fly fishing.

14th of August

Water flow up to 75 m3/s this morning generated by the heavy rain we had yesterday afternoon and during last night. The flow is expected to to increase also during the day. There will probabely be no good fishing before this evening or tomorrow when the water level begins to go down again.

13th of August

Heavy rain showers Monday afternoon brought the water flow up again yesterday, but it is now on it's way down agagin, 65 m3/s this morning. Still very good fishing conditions.

11th of August

Water flow down to 49 m3/s this morning. Superb fishing conditions on the down stream part of Gjerfloen Flyfishing zone.

8th of August

Stable water flow the last couple of days (52 m3/s) generates superb fishing conditions on Gjerfloen Flyfishing at the moment.

6th of August

Colder nights have brought the water temp. down and the low water (52 m3/s) makes the river wadeable on all the hotspots. The fishing conditions on the down stream parts of the fly zone are superbe! Predicted nice weather the comming also days indicates good fishing.

July

30th of July

Water flow down to 64 m3/s this morning. Perfect conditions for wading and fishing on the lower part of the fly zone.

28th of July

Rain showers the last two days have brought the flow up again to 70 m3/s. The water temp is brought down from 22,5 C degrees a few days ago to 17 C. Alltogether fishing conditions are very good at the moment. No fishermen on the fly zone since Saturday.

25th of July

Water flow down to 67 m3/s this morning. Lowest so far this year and the fly zone is now wadeable on all the "hot spots" and fishing conditions on the lower part of the zone are very good.

22nd of July

Because of holiday time, water flow figures from the power station have not been available for a few days, but today 73 m3/s is reported. This is normal for this time of the summer and the river is wadeable. We have at the moment very good fishing conditions on the lower part of Gjerfloen Flyfishing.

15th of July

Water flow down to 85 m3/s this morning which is not far from normal for the time being. Just a few more warm days now and we are there! Best time for fishing at the moment should be in the morning between 8 and 11, and between 11 and 1 at night.

14th of July

Warm and nice weather since yesterday has brought the water flow down again to 91 m3/s this morning. Watertemp. 16 C degrees. No fishermen on Gjerfloen since Saturday.

11th of July

Water flow down from 110 m3/s to 104 m3/s this morning. water temp 16,5 C degrees. The nice and warm weather we had yesterday generated the best fishing day so far this season. The 11 fishermen on Gjerfloen Flyfishing were inspirated by a lot of rising especially between 23.00 and 01.00 in the night. However, it was a bit frustrating to see that the graylings ignored nearly everything that was served. Ant imitations did well, and a good number of +40's were landed.

9th of July

More rain yesterday generated the flow up to 105 m3/s this morning. Six fishermen on Gjerfloen Flyfishing today have experienced that the graylings have been hard to catch because of the rising water. There will be 10 fishermen on the flyzone tomorrow and my guess is, with good weather prognoses in mind, that the graylings will be much more cooperative than today.

8th of July

The rain yesterday rushed the waterflow up again to 95 m3/s this morning. Rain showers today also, but from tomorrow and the rest of the week we are promised better weather. This might indicate we shall have good fishing the comming days.

7th of July

Flow down to 89 m3/s this morning. The fishing yesterday evening and night did not become as good as expected. A northern breeze generated temperature fall and fog on the water, though there was a rush around 0900 pm. Two Swedes caught 24 graylings yesterday afternoon, the other 4 fishing yesterday will stay for the rest of the week and have not yet delivered catch reports.

6th of July

Flow down to 91 m3/s this morning, lowest so far this year. Warmer weather is predicted the comming days, and my guess is that we from now on finally shall see the river from its better side! 6 fishermen on Gjerfloen today. Catch reports tomorrow.

4th of July

Water flow down to 103 m3/s this morning and we have had only a few rain showers this afternoon, which means water level down to aproximately less than 100 m3/s tomorrow. The warm weather today generated more hatching then we have seen for some days now. Resting day for the graylings on Gjerfloen today as there were no fishermen there.

3rd of July

The rain yesterday brought the water flow up to 104 m3/s this morning but is this afternoon on its way down again. The Italians (Team Bologna) caught 30 graylings up to 40 cm this afternoon. Small midges size 18 was the best medicine today.

2nd of July

Water flow up again to 96 m3/s this morning. 5 Italians on the Fly zone today. Under difficult conditions with rain and rising water level, they landed 27 graylings up to 42 cm. We had rain last night and most of the day and the water flow is increasing. Weather forecast indicates rainy weather till Friday. I'm wondering what I should do to the Weather Gods to be awarded a longer period with real nice summer weather!

1st of July

The water level goes on sinking. The flow today down to 93 m3/s. Four Austrians dry fly fishing on the fly zone today caught 25 graylings, but none +40 today. Wind from north east and airtemp. only 16 C degrees might be an apropriate explanation this time...... The Danicas are still there.

June

30th of June

Water flow down to 95 m3/s this morning, lowest so far this summer. Saturday and Sunday three Germans caught 25 fishes up to 42 cm on the fly zone. Not a remarkable high number, but under the unfavourable weather conditions it was not too bad. The Danica is still hatching.

29th of June

100 m3/s through the Power station this morning. No catch reports from the week end fishermen yet. Some wind and not so nice weather make me believe that the fly fishing is not at its best today. The weather forecast says we shall have north east wind, cloudy weather with some rain showers and temperatures below normal the comming days. This is not the kind of weather fly fishermen are dreaming of! BUT...even if the weather is not the best, the fish must have some food.

28th of June

Water flow down again to the level we had on Tuesday (104 m3/s). Coditions on Gjerfloen Flyfishing are good. I am looking forward to seeing the catch reports from the fishermen visiting Gjerfloen this week end.

27th of June

Water flow down to 110 m3/s this morning. Danicas hatching in large numbers through out the day yesterday and this will go on for some days. Water flow, weather and hatching could indicate that the comming days might be the week end of the year!

26th of June

Water flow down again to 129 m3/s this morning. May be it is the sunshine that has generated hatching of the danica in large numbers at Plassen this morning. The waterlevel 25 cm above normal for the time being, did not prevent the graylings from chasing the "Green Drakes".

25th of June

Even if the water level has risen 15 - 20 cm at Plassen since yesterday, the graylings are showing their backfinns upstream the bridge at this moment (10.30). At Lutufallet Powerstation the flow went up to 142 m3/s this morning. We have had no rain today and the river is already falling rapidly down again.

24th of June

Water flow this morning up to 104 m3/s. Heavy rain last night and before noon today will surely increase the flow later today and tonight considerably. I therefoore guess that there will be no good conditions for flyfishing again till Thursday even if we are promised nice weather again from tomorrow. The Danica has been on the "catwalk", but so far in very small numbers. By the week end I guess we shall see more of them!

23rd of June

Attension!!! The "Green Drake" (Danica) is observed!!!!! A few may flies were seen yesterday in the southern part of the Trysil river as well as in center region. Water flow down again to 103 m3/s this morning. Fishing conditions are good. Weather forecast: Some rain tomorrow (tuesday), nice weather the rest of the week. Flyfishermen... you know what this mean... hatching of course...

22nd of June

Heavy rain showers caused an increase in the water flow again the last two days. Today up again to 104 m3/s. Weather forecast says not much rain the comming days, which indicates good fishing conditions next week. Yhe yellow one is still hatching and we are now waiting for "the green drake" (danica) to turn up in a few days.

19th of June

Flow down to 97 m3/s today. The yellow one (gul forsslända) is hatching Plassen at the moment. The green drake (danica) is not yet seen here, but should turn up now in a few days. Fishing conditions are good.

18th of June

Flow down to 100 m3/s today. Fishing conditions are good. Some good catches reported today and yesterday.

17th of June

Flow today down to 103 m3/s, lowest so far this year, and quite normal for the time being. Even if the weather and fishing conditions are good, not many fishermen are seen.

15th of June

Water flow down again on 112 m3/s tooday. We had no rain this week end and the the fishing became better than predicted on Friday, - you never know...

13th of June

Yesterdays rain brought the flow up again to 129 m3/s this morning. Weather reports say rainshowers and wind from north on Saturday. Better weather on Sunday. This could indicate that conditions for flyfishing this week end won't be very good, but you NEVER know...

12th of June

The water flow is today down again on 110 m3/s. The weather is cloudy, but warm and if this goes on it must be good conditions for flyfishing this week end.

11th of June

Yesterday the flow went up to 150 m3/s becase of the rain we had. Today it is down on 130 m3/s. By the comming week end conditions ought to be good again. We have had pleasant temperature and we can see some rising graylings today. From the week end and the comming week is normally a period when the insects really wakes up.

9th of June

Last nights rain generated an increase in the water flow today, this morning up to 113 m3/s. Yesterday Ulf Olsson from Laxå reported good nymph fishing at Plassen. A number of graylings between 35 cm and 40 cm. He reported also a lost brown trout estimated to about 1,5 kg. Today the pikes at Plassen were in the chasing mood and I was in contact with several between 3 kg and 5 kg.

8th of June

Water flow down to 110 m3/s. As there were very few insects on the water yesterday, the flyfishermen did not succeed with dryflies an only a few graylings were landed. The yellow mayfly (gul forsslända) was observed yesterday. This one normally appear from 20th of June.

7th of June

Water flow down again, 112 m3/s today. 6 flyfishermen on Gjerfloen today. Reports will be presented tomorrow.

6th of June

Because of the rain showers yesterday the flow have had a minor increase today and is up again to 117 m3/s. This is not dramatic at all and with no more rain the flow will be down again tomorrow. The first flyfishermen appear at Gjerfloen Flyfishing tomorrow and then we'll see...

5th of June

Water flow down to 114 m3/s. Rain showers today might stop the waterflow decrease, but that we will see tomorrow morning. Fishing conditions at the upper part of Gjerfloen Flyfishing are good.

4th of June

The water-level rush down continous. Today we have 117 m3/s which is down 9 m3/s since yesterday. The flow is under normal for this time of the year and this is of course good news from a fly fisher's point of wiew.

3rd of June

The water level goes on sinking and the flow at the power station today is 126 m3/s. This is nearly exactly the same we had last year. The graylings are now very active and today we had for the first time this year, high "traffic" in the fish trap at Sagnfossen power station.

2nd of June

Water flow has gone down to 140 m3/s today and the graylings are rising. The predicted weather forecast should indicate nice flyfishing here the comming week end.

1st of June

A couple of days ago we could see the first graylings breaking the surface of the Trysil river at Plassen. This indicates that fly fishing season finally is here again! The water flow to day is 150 m3/s which is nearly the same we had last year. The weather forecast says nice weather the days to come which means water level down and water temp. up = HATCHING! Fly fishermen, what are you waiting for?
