Question Norway Fishing Opportunities- October

Team Spey

I just received notice I will be spending the month of October in Beautiful Norway for business. I will be based in Tananger

I will have ample opportunity to indulge in recreation (see where I am gong with this)

Looking for any options to swing (for fish..Get your mind out of the gutter)

Any help would be greatly appreciate

I think I fish, in part, because it’s an anti-social, bohemian business that, when gone about properly, puts you forever outside the mainstream culture without actually landing you in an institution. –John Gierach

Back Eddy:

Most of the rivers in Norway close the season September 1. (but not all)

Your only chance to fish for atlantics would be to arrive a week earlier or so. If you do, your in luck:
River Suldalslågen (Suldalslaagen) season closes October 1. Its aprox 2 hour drive, north from Stavanger.
This is a fairly big river (western Norways biggest), and the salmon are also known to be big.

Look up in youtube:
-Neteland production (Neteland brothers made a nice vid form Suldalslågen a couple of years ago).
-Skoti @ Suldalslågen (live stream from Skoti pool, usualy fish in cam).

Best of luck,
-Sigurd

The next one, is always the best one!

Sea Trout ends 2,nd week Sept. salmon end august.
Due to climate the run times are much shorter. their season is June in some rivers, till end August. In north Norway it starts getting colder in sept nights, therefore the fish start getting ready for spawning.

Eddy:

Sorry for bringing the sad news, but all rivers in Norway are closed in October (except for one). This time the fish are on the reds, and spawning usually on by mid October. This also include most fishing for Brown Trout, but im not familiar with the nearby options such as lakes.

In October there is only one river in Norway open for atlantics (that im aware of):
River Drammenselva, upper parts close November 1.
This is sadly one of the last places i would recomend a fellow speypager, coming to Norway.
The Drammenselva is situated in eastern part of Norway, near the capital Oslo. Its a aprox 6+ hour drive from Stavanger.
I will send you a PM with some info.

If your not afraid of fishing in the salt, then you will have a lot of possibilitys nearby. Beach casting with a SH rod, spin gear, jigging etc.

Back Eddy, if you're based in Stavanger, you can always take a flight on Friday night to Aberdeen, fish the Dee on Saturday, and come back to Stavanger in the evening. The Dee and the Tay are open till mid October. There are also other options around Aberdeen till end of October. Perhaps not the cheapest way of swinging fly for salmon but it's only 1hr flight.
