New beat 2020 – Hovinsgjerdet (HG). New Hovinsgjerdet beat is 500 meters long and is situated righ above the Gaulfossen on West (Left) side of the Gaula. Salmon tends to stop in the pool after they run up the Gaulfossen rapids. In the middle of the pool there is deeper area which is one of the hot spots. Hovinsgjerdet beat fishes best with water levels between 150-10 cubics.
Parking is by East side of Gaulfossen bridge or alternatively by Hovin school. From West side of the bridge begins partly steep path by the railway and down to the beat. Be careful when walking on side of the railway and when crossing it. Keep your fly rod low because of the dangerous electric wires above. The beat is located inside of the nature reserve and that’s why it is forbidden to make fire, leave trash, build shelter and cut down trees. Hovinsgjerdet is included in Gaula Flyfishing Lodge rotation 1st June-5th July and 29th July-31st August 2020.
