Last year we took a group to the Thvera River for some early season salmon fishing for 4 days from June 16. – 20. We got some difficult days and the season turned out to be below average. This year we made the same trip to the same river and what a different trip it was making us really optimistic for the upcoming season.
This year we had a group of 10 German and Swiss anglers sharing 8 rods in total. We fished the Thvera River and the Brenna beat which is the lowest part of the Thvera. In 4 days the group landed 43 salmon, compared to 17 last year. Of the 43 salmon landed there were 32 MSW’s and 11 grilse. We caught fish in all the beats and had many on the hitch. We also lost about 50 salmon as the takes were fierce and violent as per usual with fresh run salmon.
Overall we had a great time, had some wonderful food and enjoyed life at the wonderful Thvera River. We will report on some more salmon fishing in the coming days but overall the start seems to be just great.
