Winners of the catch and release competition and scale sample competition.
The practice of catch and release has been one of the meassures used in the task of enhancing the salmon population in Lakselva (especially the largest growing- and the multiple spawning part of the population). Since its origin thirteen years ago, the catch and release competition has been aiming to stimulate towards an increased number of large salmon being released in Lakselva. We really appreciate the generosity at Heggøy Aktiv AS for donating the grand prize to the winners of both classes of the competition; one week at West Ranga Lodge, Iceland. Lakselv Landowners Association has contributed by donating two seasonal fishing licenses for the 2020-season in Lakselva.
