Fishing & Angling during summer and autumn

Lake Mjøsa's topographical conditions with its large volume of water and great depths. As a host to 20 different fish species, Lake Mjøsa is among the top lakes in Norway as far as varied fishing is concerned. Even though the majority of Lake Mjøsa's fish species can be traced back to "immigrants from the East", the family salmonidae clearly dominate, when it comes to fish quantity. Lake Mjøsa has one of Europe's largest populations of large Brown Trout.

The Grayling is the fish most wanted, offering a great catch from April until October. The season for Grayling starts with dry fly-fishing between the ice-flakes in the month of April. During spring time flood, in the month of May, the angling starts.

The method of fly-fishing is the most popular during summertime and autumn. Hunder Brown trout, representing the greatest breed of Big Brown, is not easily taken and offers the most challending as well as exclusive fishing experiences. Every year spesimens from 8 to 12 kilos are caught by rod.

The Gudbrandsdalslågen river and Ringsaker area are also popular. One of Norway's best river for angling.
