Fishing Adventures in Trøndelag
Deep-sea fishing and Fjord fishing
You will find excellent spots for deep-sea fishing and fjord fishing all along the coast of Trøndelag, either from the shore, in a hired boat or on a guided tour with a local guide.
Hitra and Frøya
To the south there’s Hitra and Frøya, an archipelago where isles and skerries create shelter from the elements and ensure good fishing conditions. Here you will find several excellent facilities where you can spend the night and hire a boat – and there’s a lot of fish there!
The Fosen peninsula
The Fosenhalvøya peninsula is the middle stretch along the coast of Trøndelag. The smaller number of isles and skerries there allows you quicker access to the open sea, thus increasing your chances of catching bigger fish. On the landward side of Fosen, the Trondheimsfjord stretches all the way up to Steinkjer. There are lots of fish in the entire fjord, and good conditions for fjord fishing from land or boat.
The Namdal Coast
Farthest north we find the Namdal coast, stretching from Flatanger , via Namsos and Vikna to Leka farthest to the north. Thousands of islands provide shelter against the wind and weather, allowing for good, safe fishing. In the Namsenfjord you will find many of the commonest species like cod, saithe and redfish, but also some sea trout. The current halibut fishing record of 2.3 metres/158 kilos was set just off Leka, perhaps you will break it?
