The well known Swedish flyfisherman and author, Bengt Öste, wrote this in the logbook after his visit at this place in October 2000…

“In cod we trust” 

Fishing and fishing related activities are part of the Norwegian lifestyle. Their ancestors were great boat builders, made great discoveries and conquered by boat. The people of Norway feel a connection to the water, they love going out fishing, sailing.

For the fisherman Norway is a treasure trove, they has countless, lakes, rivers and fjords where the angler can catch the big one.

You can try your luck in thousands of lakes, rivers and streams angling for wild trout, grayling, pike, powan and arctic char. Or you could go for a different kind of experience along the wild, rugged and largely unspoiled coastline.

If you prefer saltwater fishing, the sea is packed with a variety of big fish, from mackerel to cod to sea trout. Thanks to the cold and clear waters and a strong focus on sustainability, the Norwegian seas have abundant stocks of many fish. With a coastline longer than the equator and opportunities for catching cod of record breaking proportions, chances are you will get hooked on sea fishing in Norway.

Best destinations for angling

In general, you will be able to fish at nearly any point on the seemingly endless Norwegian coastline of about 25.000 kilometres (more than 100.000 kilometres when the numerous islands are included). Insiders, of course, have their preferred spots and coastal stretches, and among these are:

The Oslo fjord

The Oslo fjord is an important fishing area with many species and angling possibilities nearly everywhere.

The Kristiansand area

Enjoy the varied and sheltered coastline near Kristiansand . Go summer fishing for a huge range of species.

Fjord Norway (Fjordkysten)

Between Bergen and Alesund. Here you will find traditional fishing villages and islands where fishing still is the main income for locals. Join fishermen on guided tours and they will show you the best fishing spots.

Møre and Romsdal

A great variety of species and many suitable fishing spots from shore. Providing protection for the fjords and inlets in the region, these make it possible to go fishing with relatively small boats all year round. The Atlantic Road, part of the National Tourist Routes, is a good angling point in itself, allowing easy access to the surrounding islands.

Trøndelag

From the islands of Hitra and Frøya in the south, via the Fosen peninsula, up to the Namdal coastline and Leka in the north, the thousands of islands and varied coastal scenery of Trøndelag  make for a landscape that is both wild and charming — ideal for anglers.

Saltstraumen 

The meeting point between two fjords and among the world’s strongest tidal currents, located 33 kilometres from Bodø town centre.

The Lofoten islands and Vesterålen

A major fishing area with long traditions. Both The Lofoten islands and Vesterålen offers numerous guided tours by professional fishermen and accommodation in traditional fishing villages.

Finnmark, Troms and The North Cape (Nordkapp)

There are good fishing possibilities all year round in Finnmark, Troms and The North Cape; however, the biggest cods are found here during wintertime. These areas are among the most sought after by insiders. Enthusiasts call Sørøya the kingdom of the big fish.

 

On to my preferred type of fishing!

norway-atlantic-salmon-steelhead-fishingFly Fishing

Rivers are not just reserved for salmon. For example Norway’s american brook trout record was taken in Mandalselva. A beautiful specimen of 2.3kg or 5lb. There has been observed larger, but not yet caught. Maybe it’ll be you?

Landlocked Salmon (Salmo salar l).

A relic landlocked salmon from the last Ice Age. The fish is so unique, that is only found in 6 waterways in the whole world.

Marble trout variant.

If that’s not enough, then the same waterway houses another unique fish. A brown trout but with Marble Trout markings. The only marble trout variant found outside of the Balkans!

If that’s still not enough, all rivers are generously populated with brown trout, with some fine examples reaching 3-4kg (7-8lbs).

When casting a fly to atlantic salmon, then there are many choices. Depending on conditions and size of river. Mandalselva is easily tamed with a 14’ #9 double hander, others prefer 10’ #7 one handers and others switch rods. 15lb(7kg) – 25lb(9kg) tippets possibly stronger depending on where in the river you are fishing. Lines in accordance with the conditions. Though most fish with floating or float with a fast intermediate front section. When it comes to flies, well the peaty rivers of the south suit oranges, yellows, gold. Ally’s shrimp, thunder and lightning, cascade, sunray shadow, etc.
