Freshwater fishing

  Norway is famous for not only sea, but also freshwater fishing. Almost everywhere

in Norway, there are lakes, rivers and streams. Fishing season starts early, when

the lakes and rivers are still covered with a thick layer of ice, ice fishermen are

already drilled and catch trout, grayling and exclusive Arctic char. When the river

throws off the ice and flood ends, you can catch on lure or fly excellent trout,

grayling and in June open's season on all salmon rivers. At this time, pecking

salmon, often weighing more than 10 kilograms. Summer - the perfect time to

catch Arctic char, salmon, large whitefish and grayling, along with trout. Also

extremely good fishing can be in September and October, before the mountain

lakes covered with ice and the circle will be closed until next spring.
