Latest News from Steffen Juhl at Umba Camp Week 38
The Story from last week continues – despite hard weather conditions with heavy rain and hurricane like winds there are still Salmon Junkies on the river!

So far 60 Salmon landed:
10x salmon 10 – 14lbs.
8x salmon 15 – 19lbs.
6x salmon 20 – 24lbs.

So almost everyone in our group have become Twenty Pound Members and there are still two days left!

As usual quite a lot of Whoppers have been lost, and in most cases they have stripped the entire backing from the reels!

The River has gone up almost a foot which of course have had a negative effect on the fishing (Tuesday). Luckily it stopped so the next couple of days looks promising!

Despite the crazy weather, looking at the time of year it’s still very warm (water 10 C.), so the fishing is still beeing carried out with floating lines and Poly Leaders.

Top flies are The Cascade, Marco fly and Red But.

All in all it looks very promising for the weeks to come – so stay tuned!

Tight lines!
