Dry fly heaven in norway

The fish (only wild trout and Arctic char) are very keen on dry flies all season from June to September. The area is perfect for those new to the sport of fly-fishing, however the fishing can be pretty challenging even for the avid angler.

The special climate and the structure of the waters around Skålestrømmen are the ideal habitat for trout. The insect life in the waters is incredibly rich and one can find all from Mayflies, Caddis and Stoneflies. The hatches and rises can only be described as epic.

Having been flyfishing in Norway each summer since 2004, I have visited many rivers and lakes and had many a good days fishing.However, I have never been fishing a place like the Skålestrømmen , with so many rising trout and with such a high quality of trout! Those days I/we fished the Skålestrømmen, have been the best flyfishing I have had in Norway and the most fun as well. Night fishing is especially awesome , where big caddis hatching brings out the big trout and char, and of course the big one got away due to a hook failure. So remember strong barbless hooks !

I can highly recommend visiting Skålestrømmen for serious trout flyfishing.
