Here is our first autumn mid week report from our beloved river Umba. It has been an action packed week so far and there are salmon everywhere. The river is running perfect – 16 c – which means magnificent Krivetz is a true salmon paradise. Especially, Office Pool and Pine Pool and Golden Pool have been very productive. Peter Kjær from Denmark picked up 13 Salmon on his second day visiting those wonderful pools. Biggest fish was 15 Lbs, what an accomplishment and it gets better Peter have never caught a salmon before on the fly, WAUW!
So far we have an average of 10 salmon per rod which is simply fantastic. 11 salmon between 10-14 Lbs, 8 salmon between 15-19 Lbs and 1 x 24 Lbs. Last mentioned whopper was caught by Søren Godtfredsen from Denmark, a BIG welcome to the 20 Lbs Club and of course celebrated with lots of Vodka!
Today it has rained quite a lot which is even more promising for the days to come. “Best” flies Red Butt, The Undertaker, Billy Butt and the up and coming Podolsky Fly.
Stay tuned for more reports, shortly!
All the best,
