Norwegian Flyfishers Club is located near the village of Støren, in Mid-Norway. Only a 45-minute drive from Trondheim and the Trondheim Airport. The Trondheim Fjord is one of the most well protected fjords in Norway, perhaps the reason why Gaula salmon have the opportunity to grow to such a large average size.
What makes NFC unique is our diverse selection of fishing beats in the middle and lower sections of the river, which increase overall chances for good fishing throughout the season, regardless of the conditions.
Spanning over 145 km from its headwaters in the high mountains near the village of Holtalen to where it joins the sea in the Trondheim Fjord. The Gaula is a wild and unregulated river which has never been built out for hydroelectric power. As such it has a constantly fluctuating water level which provides seasoned anglers with a varied and exciting fishing challenge. Second only to the Tana (which is over 10 times longer) in catch, the Gaula is one of the most consistently productive salmon rivers not only in Norway, but in the world.
The river supports healthy stocks of some of the largest Atlantic salmon in the world. Many of the fish in the Gaula average over 30 lbs. and some even over 40 lbs. In the early season fish can average over 20 lbs. This is truly the river of dreams and a place to try for the “life of a lifetime”.
For 2013, Norwegian Flyfishers Club is pleased to present its new lodge and welcome center. Located at Rogstadmoen farm (approximately 8km upstream from the village of Støren). This lodge will serve as the new central meeting point, dining facility, fly shop and bar for the NFC. We will offer lunch and dinner at the lodge. Both lunch and dinner will also be available as a river-picnic, which can either be picked up at the lodge, or shuttled to the clients riverside.
From 2014 an additional accommodation wing will be added to the lodge. It will offer capacity for up to 14 fishermen in a variety of single, double rooms and suite as well as a wellness center with sauna and a massage room.
This new gathering point will allow NFC to provide guests with an all around greater quality of service, and to help ensure the best possible fishing experience on the Gaula.
Rates vary during season from $5000 – $8500. June & July most expensive
