Fishing Report from Fishspot Land.
We have recently received some good reports from roundabout in Fishspot Land. To sum things up: Big trout, tons of grayling, successful family trips, increased accessibility, and rapidly changing weather.
Martin Mikkelsen knows a thing or two about Rena. Here he is with a 3kg trout taken on a mayfly pattern. Martin says the fishing has been exceptional, and that there have been loads of mayfly hatches.
The caddis and caddis pupa have started going off recently. Martin and Halvor Klareng know that this is the time to drop everything else and get on the water.
Lise and Roger have been on a family trip to grayling land! They experienced variable weather, tons of fish, and plenty of excitement for both young and old.
We challenge all of you to get the family out fishing this summer, especially the youngest of them!
Kongsvinger JFF informs of new opportunities to experience Finnskogen either alone, or with friends and family to enjoy the stillness of Finnskogen with your fishing rod in-hand. Mayflies are also hatching in the forest lakes throughout Finnskogen. There have been multiple reports come in of trout over 2 kg caught in Finnskogen this summer.
Kongsvinger JFF has set up new benches and rest areas throughout the area, and they advise being cautious of the “forest mistress”, as she is known to be active this time of year.
Fishspots own Jon Erlend Sundnes has been on a little road trip. The first stop was at zone 7 in Lågen, and he sent us the following report:
“Nice weather, a bit cold, and dropping water levels. Very cautious and spooky fish. It looked like many of them were looking for new places to hold, and there was little hatching during the day. It was exciting to sight fish with nymphs, but challenging. The trout began to rise steadily later in the evenings, and there were a good variety of insects to be found but not enough to where the fish became selective. I wasn’t able to crack any codes.”
After a short journey he ended up in the Grimsa Fly Fishing Zone. But by then the weather had changed…
“The river rose quickly while I was there, and I didn’t see any trout of considerable size. I assume they were moving around with the changing water levels. There was a nice baetis hatch each day from around 2 pm, and a lot of willing grayling. The water levels began to drop again on Tuesday”.
