Top Ten List Week 38

As we get closer to winter many rivers have already closes so we have some final numbers to bring you. By the look of things this year will be average catch wise, not great but not bad either. Some rivers are even better than last year but many are doing worse. One thing is sure, this is a great big salmon year. On the picture attached  you can see a fine specimen,  110cm salmon caught in Big Laxa up north by Bjössi.
