Lakes

Fishing from the shore, from a canoe, or a boat? Scouting for rising fish to toss a dry fly too, or to cast your lure in front of? Casting out bait and a bobber and waiting for the fish to bite while relaxing by the fire? Stillwater fishing offers endless opportunities for all types of angling.

In Norway you will find over 200,000 lakes. In many of these lakes you will find fantastic fishing. Fishing doesn’t always need to be about finding the big fish, but sometimes can simply be about getting out into the nature by yourself, with some good friends, or with the entire family.
Here you will find endless opportunities for good fishing in unbeatable nature settings. Tight lines!
