The counting of spawning fish in the Beiarn river was conducted with good visibility conditions last week. But from “Leiraaga” it was stop. 5 meters of visibility from Høgforsen down to Leiraaga at Molid gave good “counting conditions” for team-leader Øyvind Kanstad Hanssen & Co. Leiråga lives up to its name (with a supply of a lot of “grey water”), so the count ended there, says Kanstad Hanssen.
All included, this year’s count in the Beiarn river says 630 spawning salmon. Better than feared, but far from the top years from 2016>2019.
Registered sea trout:
Almost 1,700 sea trout were registered on the relatively short distance between Høgforsen and Leiraaga. With the fact that a large proportion of sea trout normally will be found between Leiraaga and Moldjord, these are really encouraging results. A high number of big sea trout (above 10 pound) were reported.
