Final score for Grimsa and Laxa in Kjos

The south/west coast rivers did not have a good season this year. Laxa in Kjos and Grimsa just passed 600 salmon for the 90 days season. Poor runs of grilse are the reason for this outcome, but it seems like the smolts did not go out to sea in the cold spring of 2015. As a result, double amount of smolts left our rivers this spring, expecting to show up as grilse in the 2017 season. We had very high average weight in 2016. Good runs of MWS fish in June and beginning of July kept anglers busy throughout the season, with largest ones being over one meter. Kjos had very good runs of sea-trout, and hundreds of fish up to 17 pounds landed. Over all. Not a good season. Laxa in Kjos had a drop from 1.400 salmon to 601 and Grimsa 1400 salmon to 606. We are expecting a very good one next year as it seems we are seeing two age groups of smolts overlapping .
