About water-level


For us fly fisherman the water level in the river is of vital importance. It can make or break the fishing trip we have been looking out for. Especially a trip in early season can be a bit nerve wrecking at times. However, there are some tools and sources of information we can use to predict if, for instance, the melting of snow will result in lousy fishing conditions.

First of all, have a look at this website : http://www.senorge.no/index.html?p=senorgeny&st=snow
You can choose for information about snow, rain and temperature. You can zoom in the maps, and choose the area in Norway you plan to visit. You can see the actual amount of snow in the mountains, and you can change the date - for instance, have a look at the situation a week - or 2 years - ago. 

Second, have a look at

You can get a ten days weather forecast, and even though this long term forecast is not always very reliable, it gives you an idea of what's going on.

Last, study the diagram at the fly fishing reports page. Combine the information found from these three sources, and you can make a fair prediction how the river will look like. It's not full proof, but hell, nobody can look into the future.
