End of season in Orkla

17-24 of August 2024 - 12 rods in total.

This week we are fishing on 3 fantastic beats, Ljøkel (Vormstad), Nedre/Midtre Ekli and Polset

We fish in week 34, when the river is full of salmon of all sizes – both colored and silver, large and small. In addition, the season's last haul of large fresh salmon enters at this time - with a little luck you can be hooked by these salmon. The very largest salmon are also on the warpath during this period. In 2020, we witnessed one of the river's heavyweights being caught in the same week in the Tivoli pool at Ljøkelvaldet. It was a giant of 123 cm and a weight estimated between 18 and 20 kg.

The beats 

We fish on Ljøkelvaldet, which consists of 4 zones located in the lower part of Orkla near Vormstad. Liehølen – 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. In addition, we have Midtre/Nedre Ekli and Polset, which are among the best beats in the lower part of Orkla. All 3 beats hold plenty of salmon throughout the season, are easy to wade and we have fishing rights 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 of Orkla, where we fish, the river is relatively wide and we recommend two-handed fly rods of 12 – 15 feet with a good selection of lines in different densities. Here at the end of the season, there may also be an opportunity for "dry" fishing with "riffling hitch" or bombers. This is absolutely some of the most entertaining and exciting fishing ever.

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 beats 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 beats - you learn how to read the fishing water.

What is included in the tour?

  • 7 days of fishing in Orkla on Nedre/Midtre Ekli, Ljøkel and Polset.
  • 7 nights in a house by the river - there is accommodation in single and double rooms.
  • 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 from 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/
