NVE, says no to
exploiting river Folla for hydro electrical power plant!
The pros of power production, will not justify the harm and
the disadvantages for common interests!
This is the conclusion and the very cheerful outcome of our
protest champagne for saving this beautiful river.
NVE mentions especially that this project would harm the big
interest for sport fishing in this river!
We have won my friends, GREAT thanks for YOUR support!!!!
You can help us stop the exploitation of this magnificent trout
and grayling river in Norway!
winter is over and the first grayling has been seen rising. A
few also grabbed our flies!

with a good one caught the 2.nd of April)
This river is
one of the few left unregulated and offering increasingly good
fly fishing for trout and grayling. Situated in
unspoilt nature, bordering to and has it's tributaries in the
national park of the mountain massive
River Folla has the potential to become a even better grayling
and trout river as they now also started to clean up from the
mining sulphur pollutions from yesteryears.
It’s ridicules that the government now is handling 400
requests to build small scale hydro power plants all over Norway, due to
high power prices. The scenery for the future is every
little spawning creek regulated and in tube!
It’s also ridicules to
allow building of hydro power plant in Folla as this river
today offers a glorious wild experience of nature and in a couple of years will be cleaner
than in many years. The money spent cleaning is worthless
is now up for presenting other views before the application
for building this plant, is undergoing close consideration by NVE.
We thank you all for an enormous response and thousands of
Our voice must be heard!
News concerning this matter will be presented here.
