Orkla River

A Salmon River accessible to most people

If you are dreaming about catching a salmon, you should buy a permit in Orkla River, and make sure to be there in the middle of July. By this time, all the minor salmon and the large sea trout has arrived, stacked up, alongside the big salmons that entered the river on first summer.
The Orkla River is situated in the Central Trøndelag region and runs into the massive Trondheim fjord. Trøndelag offers a spectacular variety of scenery, from its rolling coastal plains, to the towering snow-capped mountains.
The fishing season in Central Norway runs from 1 June until 31 August. Although the best time for fishing in this region is during the first two months of the season, August fishing can still be particularly rewarding, once the first runs of fish have settled along the river.
The Orkla is one of 6 major rivers in the region, which produce a haul of between 30,000 and 40,000 salmon during the fishing season every year. The river has a well-deserved reputation as one of the best competition fishing rivers in Europe, and is well-known for its excellent stocks of large fish. With the introduction of catch and release policies across Norway’s rivers, Orkla is also subject to new fishing quotas. Kept salmon are limited to one per day and 10 per season. Any sea trout caught in the area must be released. ...More

The river of your dreams

River Hemsila is part of Fishing Norway’s top 5 list on fly-fishing rivers for mountain trout. Crystal clear, and gently flowing, speckled with a few class one rapids, it is making its way down the beautiful valley tacked in spruce shores between mountains drizzling with waterfalls.
Even with a single hand rod, you are able to reach any big fish rise that may occur in front of you. Using long razor thin leaders you will make perfect presentations to the huge golden brown trout out there in the current. For a split second you will chill to the bone at the strike, before the pool explodes in violent turmoil, and the squeaking of your reel fills the air. The Hemsila trout is a wild bread, making uncontrollable runs and leaps. Running big trout on such fine gear is a challenge indeed, so keep you focus, for the line may snatch at any moment. ...More
Stabburselva / Rávttojohka  2008

Fishing for big salmon on the Lombola stretch.

What a salmon! 12,8 kg. A Duck Special Spoon dangles from its jaw. Mr. Egil Persen from Alta just had yet another golden moment on the Lombola stretch. However this is not his biggest salmon. The record was caught on fly some years back, and was a staggering 19,6 kg. Never the less the same feeling of thrill and awe is present every time a big salmon is landed. To catch and land a big salmon is always an unforgettable experience.
Mr Egil Persen owns a cabin in Stabbursdalen valley. This is where he spends his entire summer. If you are hunting for the big salmon, the time to come here is from 18`th of June until 1`st of July. Everybody wants to fish in Fossekulpen, but only 5 permits are sold there. The fishing is also regulated from the suspension bridge and down to the outlet. But the chances of a catch are just as good in the remaining parts of the river.
On the 12 km long stretch from the campsite and up to pond Fossekulpen, there are an unrestricted number of permits. And the same thing goes for the long stretch above Fossekulpen and up to Njakkagorzze, where the salmon is forced to stop. Late season it is a lot of salmon here, and few people. Not everybody has the health for this walk, even though the odds for a major catch are high. ...More

Suldalslågen River, a new favourite for big salmon anglers

Suldalslaagen is a primer target for anglers in the 2008 season. If you have a late vacation, this river is perfect for you. Because the salmon hits the river later than in other rivers, the best fishing takes place in September. Furthermore, Suldalslaagen is not only the best salmon river in Rogaland State. Together with River Drammenselva, it is consistently among the best rivers in Southern Norway, with regular catches above 20kg. ...More
Reisa River / Reisaelva

The big salmon re-established in Reisa!

Reisa is re-merging as one of Norway’s most attractive rivers for big salmon. Wrapped up in abundant mountain vegetation, and with more than 40 waterfalls, the river is now developed into a tourist magnet wrapped in gold. The official 5,7 ton catch record for salmon only in 2006, is a five times rise in two years.
The success appears to be continuing. In 2007, when the general fishing in Norway was very bad in most rivers, Reisa managed to keep up its catch record from previous years, ending at 5 ton! The small salmon was absent, but this was more than compensated by an increased catch of big salmon. Most of the salmon landed on premiere night, was between 8-18 kg. Especially local fishermen who can fish the river regularly may experience incredible catching. In the 2006 season, one of the locals caught 59 salmons, 50 sea trout and char. In the 2007 season, several fishermen could report catching in the scale of 40-50 salmons, 20-30 sea trout, and 10-15 arctic char. ...More
Steinsfjorden / Tyrifjorden

The best spot in Norway for pike and perch

The Steinsfjord is one of the definitive hotspots on fishing Norway for pike and perch. With its mild eastern Norwegian climate and its central location only half and hour from Oslo by car, and its swelling scenery, the lake is a popular destination for anglers from abroad. Each summer, more than 1000 pikes, and some huge amount of bass (some of which are 60 cm) are caught from the rental boat of Mr. Erling Elsrud alone. Mr. Manual Schrants proudly displays his major catch last year, a long beast measuring 1,25m. However, on the catches of the plenty German and Dutch anglers, 9 out of 10 pikes are released into the lake. ...More
The River Tana

The best Atlantic Salmon River in the world!

No other fishing location in the world, has as much Atlantic salmon as the whitewater stretch “Saidastrykene” from Tana Bridge to the big waterfall “Storfossen”. On average some 50 000 salmons pass this zone on their long wedding migration towards the tundra. Here is ample room for all. You live well, and you don’t need to be a millionaire. Permits are quite reasonable. Huge salmons are located close shore. You don’t need long range casting, but be prepared for some long range wandering once the salmons set off downstream! Maybe you will be as lucky as Mr. Håkon Henriksen was in 2006. His salmon weighed 26 kilos. ...More

Everybody gets trout in River Jølstra!

My small dry fly sets like a feather on the current ridge. I still glimpse the broken surface where a mountain trout just kissed the surface. Will it be tempted again? The answer is instant, and so is my counter strike.
I am located in the outlet of River Jølstra, with Lake Jølstravatnet spreading out before me. No Norwegian Lake contains more trout, with an annual catch of 20 tons. The major part of this amount is taken in nets, but tons are also caught by live bait, spinner, spoons and flies, especially in proximity to the hundreds of inlet streams and the major outlet, River Jølstra.
Especially after rain, when the creeks swell, the trout seeks to these minor inlets to feast on the abundant food contained in the floodwater. I’m spooked to consciousness by a kilos trout leaping into the air as it strikes my gear so hard the reel whines. A small mistake now and the battle will be lost. But my fine gear is working skilfully in trembling hands. The well conditioned trout is secured and landed.
River Glomma / Rena / Trysilelva

Fishing for grayling with the queen of fly making

It is Midsummer Eve, early in July. Some 12 miles north of Elverum ( a city 75miles north of capitol Oslo), we exit the forestry road to “Borregårdsvelta”. We park at the fine river bank plain, exactly on the border between Åmot and Elverum. There is no wind. Cloudy. The gnats are eager. Huge graylings are kissing the flat metal glossy river surface. ...More
Flekke River

Golden moments under the waterfall Harefossen

Trolls are literary breathing down my neck at the sight of multiple great salmons flashing their backs as they enter the “Troll-pool” under the foaming waters of “Harefossen”. The first groups of early salmons headed for their spawning rendezvous in the River Flekke. Side by side they stack up under the mountain wall, before they finally spread out on the spawning grounds to full fill their wedding tasks later in September. ...More

With its Monster Salmon, and its highly vibrant population of big salmon, the Repparfjord River is on Fishing Norway’s top 20 list amongst highly recommendable rivers in Norway. “Have we seen the Monster Salmon?” Mr. Hans Mathias Ellingsen from Hammerfest is reluctant to answer. The Repparfjord River is his paradise. He has been fishing her for 30 years, and has landed 11 salmons up to 5 kg this summer. ...More
Laggo / Langfjordelva

The arctic salmon paradise for fly fishers

Langfjordelva, or Laggo as it is also called, is a true paradise for sporting anglers, and especially for those inclined to single rod fly fishing. The river has 20 km nice variation of surface and stream quality, ranging from smooth flat to rapid whites, regularly broken down by profound ponds exhibiting exhilarating inlet and outlet possibilities for both dry and wet fly fishing. It is all set towards a splendid scenery of arctic nature bathed in midnight sunlight. Merely walking along this beautiful river is worth the trip. For the wildlife enthusiast, a variety of animals and birds might be seen alongside the river, ranging from bear to exotic arctic falcons. Please reuse established camping sites and fireplaces, to protect the fragile arctic nature. The Laggo river scenery invites for plenty social relations with good friends and the friendly local river guards. ...More
