Sea Trout Fishing in the Fjords

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am Martin from Holland. This summer (June 2019) we (my wife and I) will be taking our summer holiday on the west coast from Norway. I recently found this forum and hope to find sound advice on fishing spots for seatrout in the fjords. Normally I fish the Danish coast for the silver torpedo.  If possible we hope to camp near the shore on the more rural locations (in the wild or on a campsite). We hope to avoid the more crowded locations .

Can you help me finding these spots so not to waste all the time we have to find a suitable spot?

I will mainly fish wading the shoreline (as I am used to do in Denmark).

Hope to hear from you soon.

 Tight lines,

Martin

Hi, and welcome, Martin!

We have a long stretched coast, so it may be easier to get advise and tips if you specify you travel plans. For an example; Are you visiting the Bergen-area, or further north closer to Ålesund?

Hej PzN,

Thank you for taking time to a respond to my post.

We do not have a fixed route yet. We will probably came ashore in Kristiansand and the drive up the coast. No haste, no limits, just hoping to find the beautiful spot in the wild or on a camping site.

Preferably a camping spot near the shore where I can wade and fish for seatrout .

 

Best regards,

Martin

Loads of campingspots near the shore all the way up the west coast. 

Use the same flies and the same methods you use in Denmark, will do fine. I summer its best fishing in the darker hour like in the evening and night. Search for public bading spots, these will be a good strating point. Many of the more rural ones are ok for camping, view the links under.

Hi Josteink ,

Thank you for your time and info. Handy all those links and maps.

I found a nice campsite near The Atlantic Road on a small Island.

It is called  Lysø Camping and Rorbu Rentals, 6530 Averøy.

On the map I can see many places where I can find wading possibilities and sheltered inlets.

Must be some nice currents to from the tide I suspect. Do you know this place?

We planned to visit there also during our trip. Nice small camping. Looks not so cultivated.

Tight lines,

 Martin

Averøy is a beautiful place with endless fishing-possibilities. I have not fished for seatrout up there but should be lots of good places. Perfect territory for ST. And you will catch a lot of good sized saithe, cod and pollock as well.

Smøla north of Kristiansund is known as a ST paradise. Google it.

Thnx Dagdad, 

Nice to hear that you are confident about ST on Averøy. I did check out Smøla. Found that there are no campsites. Maybe camping in the wild will be an option. Otherwise Nothaugen Fiskecamping  looks like a nice place to stay also.

'We will see . But thnx for your response. Much appriciated.

 

Kind regards, 

Martin
