Fishing in Snåsa is synonymous with visiting the Snåsa area. By purchasing a single license you will receive access to over 1500 lakes, rivers stretches, and opportunities for boat and cabin rentals in one of the most famed wilderness areas in Norway. Trout are the predominant species throughout the Snåsa public waters, but many of the lakes are also home to both Char and burbot.


The Snåsa Mountain Board manages the area and distributes the fishing license for Snåsa. As you hike between mountians and valleys you will see a huge variety of sparkling blue water and long stretches of river. You will find everything from alpine fishing deep within the Blåfjella-Skjærkerfjella National Park, to more accessible fishing along the road. Each of these opportunities has its own charm and challenges, and you are able to plan your trip exactly how you want it. Because here you will find fishing opportunities for all types of angling and all types of anglers. Either way, the potential for fish of very good quality and size is exceptional here.


This area offers a wide variety of nature experiences in beautiful settings.

If you wish, you are also able to combine your fishing trip with a historic culinary experience in culturally and historically unique high mountain valley settings. Or, you may just wish to enjoy the serenity of it all along with the proximity to unspoiled nature packed with wildlife.
