Week 24. 10-17 June - 16 rods in total.
June fishing at its best!
The trip is usually sold out and the waiting list is long. However, we have rods that rotate every year between people on the waiting list.
Ljøkel, Ekli, Polset and Bruhølen fish fantastically throughout the season, but the early weeks in particular are particularly sought after. The statistics speak for themselves and in the same week in 2022 we caught more than 40 salmon on these 4 beats.
The fishing water
We fish on Ljøkelvaldet, which consists of 4 zones located in the lower part of Orkla near Vormstad. Lihølen – Finnhølen – Ljøkelshølen and Tivoli. The beat is two-sided and fishes well from both sides of the river. We are part of a larger rotation at the beat. Nedre Ekli and Polset are also in the lower part of Orkla. The beats are very varied and with plenty of holding/resting places for the salmon. We also have fishing rights here on both sides of the river. Bruhølen is just upstream of Ljøkel and is a relatively short pool, but super productive. We had many exciting fights here in 2022 and here too we have fishing on both sides of the river.
The river and the salmon
For many seasons, Orkla has been among the best salmon rivers in Norway. In the lower part, where we fish, the river is relatively wide. We recommend two handed fly rods 12 – 15 feet with a good selection of lines in different densities. Early in the season we often have great success with relatively large and loaded flies, but a small sunray is now also always a good choice.
All salmon fly fishermen are welcome - regardless of whether you are a beginner or have experience in salmon fishing. If you need instruction, that will also be possible. There will be an introductory guide to the fishing grounds on the first day. During the week, there will also be advice on fishing strategy and tactics depending on the conditions on the river. Focus on the fishing grounds - you learn how to read the fishing water.
What is included in the tour?
- 7 days of fishing on Ljøkel, Nedre Ekli, Bruhølen and Polset in a 4 man rotation.
- Accommodation in a single room.
- Introductory guide to the fishing waters.
- Instruction in fly casting and practical fishing on request.
What is not included in the tour?
The fishing trips we offer cover access to the fishing itself as well as accommodation, therefore there are conditions that you have to take care of yourself. It is important that you relate to this. We are happy to organize an information meeting, for example via teams, as it can be difficult to gather everyone on a team depending on where they live.
- Transport to Norway ( The trip is a self-drive trip, which is why it is necessary to have a car or a seat in another car available).
- Transport to and from the river in Norway.
- Meals and drinks ( There is of course a kitchen in the house, where the food can be prepared and consumed).
- Fishing equipment (clothing (waders etc.), fishing rods, fishing reels, flies and various additional accessories and equipment)
- Travel insurance.
Rules that must always be observed:
Note: The rules for fishing in Orkla mean that there are quotas on how many salmon each individual fisherman can bring home. This means that "catch and realease" is an important part of fishing. The rules for the river are updated every season and it is the duty of every fisherman to thoroughly familiarize himself with the rules. Link: https://orklaguide.com/fiskeregler-2/
Disinfection: Fishing gear must be disinfected before fishing begins. Disinfection can be carried out in several places in the immediate area and costs a fee that is paid on the spot. Link: http://orklaguide.com/desinfisering/
Salmon licence: Everyone who fishes salmon in Norway must be in possession of a state licence, which can be purchased via the following link: https://fiskeravgot.miljodirektoratet.no/
