Default Upper Namsen Fishing

Upper Namsen Fishing

Upper Namsen Fishing offers some 9 kilometres of double bank fishing on the upper reaches of the river (45 kilometres from the sea). Over the last three seasons (2006, 2007 and 2008) the daily rod catches has been 1.5, 1.2 and 1.4 salmon per rod per day respectively.

The fishing season on Namsen and Sanddøla (tributary) rivers: 1st June till 31st August.

Upper Namsen Fishing is situated on the upper part of Namsen River. Grong village is 2 hours 30 minutes drive from Trondheim Airport that is approx. 2 hours flight time away from Stansted Airport,

The Fishing
Upper Namsen Fishing offers around 9 kilometres of double bank fishing on the upper parts of the river (45 kilometres/28 miles from the sea). A total of 16 rods will enjoy a well structured rota system, providing every angler with the opportunity to fish some of the best salmon waters in Norway.

The beats start just below the 34 metres high Fiskum Falls, in a magnificent canyon. This stretch is amongst the most prolific in Norway and is by many seen as a 'dead cert' with regards to catches. The beats continue with the Fossland and Mediaa stretches, a combination of slow moving fly-water and marvellous holding pools. The beats end up at the Junction pool area, just below the village of Grong.

Four competent guides will look after the anglers at the different stretches and the rota system will give 8 hours fishing per day. Two fishing stretches will always be rested.

Although harling is primarily used on the lower Namsen in June, the Upper Namsen Fishing's beats offer excellent fly fishing during the whole season, particularly in July and August when the snow-melt has ended and the water level is normal for the time of year.

Over the last years, 1,500 to 1,800 salmon are caught on the Upper Namsen Fishing's beats with a good combination of large and medium size salmon and grilse. Due to the delayed start of bag-net-fishing on the coast, more large salmon will arrive during the first part of the season to boost the fishing.

The Accommodation
Upper Namsen Fishing has over the years offered a choice of accommodations.

From the 2009 season anglers on the rota system will stay at the Fossland Lodge and the Holandsoya Farm's Lodge. Both lodges are very well equipped to suit the seasoned angler.

The breakfast and evening meals will be arranged at each lodge whilst the main meal of the day, a large lunch will be served for all anglers at the Fossland Lodge's outside dining area. This will allow all anglers to have two long undisrupted fishing sessions during the best time of the day, morning and evening - allowing the midday and afternoon for rest.

Anglers with any special needs can still use Hotel Vertshuset Grong.
