is a growing salmon river. Rock pools and habitats have
been created very successfully. Smolt, char, and
trout realeases explains the increasing and reliable
yearly catch. The best trout and char year was 2001
yielding 2,700 fishes, but 2002 was an excellent salmon year
with over 130 fishes caught. This river with its easily
accessible pools and two ponds is very family friendly. The
summer of 2003 was the second best registered year of the
river. The total catch was 64 salmon, 1,380 char and 91
brown trout. Large fishes are expected in the river system,
the biggest salmon weighed 17 pounds, and the char 10
pounds. About half of the catch was caught with flies.
Most of the fishing spots can be reached by normal cars, but
a few are more easily accessible by 4wd vehicles. In 2003,
approximately 40,000 smolts were realeased very
successfully. The total catch in 2007 counted over 500
salmon with four rods per day.
