Salmon fishing for groups of up to 8 persons

We offer salmon fishing for groups of up to 8 persons. Fishing takes place across several kilometres of one-sided and two-sided fishing on many of the best fishing stretches in the Verdal River. The pools are well suited for all types of fishing. The fishing is exclusive and entirely at your disposal.

We offer full accommodation or self-catering.

In our pools, an average of 120-250 salmon has been caught during the last few years. We have also caught quite a few sea trout, and the largest one last year was 4.2 kg.

We can offer facilitated salmon fishing, and John Olav has many years of guiding experience.

Fishing equipment is also available for guests residing in «Lakseloftet». We also have a nice timber cabin by the river bank at our guests’ disposal.

Our fishermen also tend to have a very good time in the shelter with a beautiful view of the river. A nice barbecue on the fire in the shelter is a wonderful end to a fishing session, where you spend the evenings watching the bonfire and the river floating by in the light Norwegian summer nights while you engage in friendly conversations about anything from fishing to the meaning of life together with good fishing companions and sausages wrapped Ingrid’s barbequed potato cakes. The nights are light this time of year, and all of a sudden you will find that it is almost morning and time to try to catch some nice Verdal salmon again.

Fly fishing course with qualified instructors

Why not combine your stay with a course in fly fishing? Learn from our qualified fly fishing instructors and get more out of your fishing trips. Our instructors will instruct you in both traditional fly fishing techniques and spey casting, which will improve your fishing on stretches that contain plenty of fish but that do not work that well with traditional «over the head cast”

The fly fishing course is both theoretical and practical, with fishing and instruction after the morning sessions. How to adjust fishing equipment is also part of the course, as this is essential for having a good experience in the river. Fly selection is also important when trying to catch the salmon, and therefore fly selection in different conditions will also be discussed. Towards the end of the day, instructors and fishermen gather around the fire, sharing fishing experiences with each other while coffee is made in a black kettle on the fire.
