Many of our guests come to fish. We got the river Åsgårdselva nearby, and Glomma runs through the city. We got the scenic lakes of Indre Østfold, and we got sea-fishing in the Oslo fjord. The choice is yours.
There is a lot of regulations and laws in relation to fishing in Norway. Most sports-fishermen know these. If you don't know them, here is a couple of links.
The river Ågårdselva is known as an excellent river for fishing. er viden kjent som en utmerket fiskeelv. Long time ago, this area housed the biggest sawmill in Northern Europe. Today, the river floats by ruins and restored waterwheels reminding us of a proud past. Note; Most of the time you wil be on private and historical grounds open for the public.
