Aursunden – diverse fishing lake
Aursunden lake feeds the Glomma river and can offer attractive fishing, especially after big trout and whitefish, but also species like arctic char, perch and burbot. Here you can fly or baitfish for whitefish cruising the shallows for insects, or you can troll the lake for massive trout hunting for pray.
The fish population in Aursunden is varied and you can target fish like trout, whitefish, arctic char, grayling, perch and burbot. The lake is 690 meters above sea-level, has a surface area of 46 km2, and is a fairly shallow lake with average depths at 13 m and maximum depth at 60 meter. The lake si well known for it huge population of white fish witch inhabits all areas of the lake.
The trout population is described as thin, but compared with similar lakes it is recognized as good. It has good recruitment and the growth rate is also good with up to 9 cm every year. The size of the trout is very good. Fish of 1-3 kilo is caught regularly, and fish on around 5 kilo are yearly caught. The trout are found near the shore and in shallow areas, but also appear as pelagic fish in the water column.
The char population have sadly receded as spawning grounds have been lost due to water level regulation. From being a char dominated lake the trout is now the most prolific fish. Grayling can be found in the north end, but as with perch and burbos, it has little interest for the keen fisherman.
