Low water condition and less salmons entered Umba this week. Weather looks much better this week = rain and cooler temperature. Nevertheless, last week did produce 52 salmons with 14 between 10-14 Lbs, 2 salmon between 15-19 Lbs and 3 super chromers between 20-24 Lbs. The two brothers Eskild and Lars Dam Nielsen (Umba veterans from Denmark) caught 18 salmon with the biggest of 20 Lbs, A BIG welcome to the 20 Lbs Club. Lars managed to catch on of the salmon in Rat Channel, which is a very difficult place to catch a salmon, well done.
Umba verean Petri Teleranta – Finland – caught some very nice chromers too, but at one point ran out of luck with a monster lost in Nicks Pool. The salmon jumping all over but after some real intense minutes the fly simply lost its grip. Robert Layton – from UK – caught a real hot fresh whopper of 20 Lbs in Office Pool, not the most easiest wading pool, well done.
Best flies this week; Red Butt, Billy Butt, Cascade, Podolsky and Snelda. Water temperature = 12c.
This autumn has been challenging however some really big fish has been caught this season, weather does seem to improve now and we hope for normal autumn condition. We usually encounter some really BIG fish the last weeks of October so we are all very excited whats is in store the coming weeks.
Stay tuned for more reports, shortly.
All the best,
