South Norway

Hi all,

I'll be spending a few days in south Norway, visiting some of my wife’s family, in the near future. By accident, a rod or two could sneak into my suitcase and then I might as well put them to use…
We’ll be staying near Risør, which lies on the coast between Kristiansand and Oslo.

Does anyone out there have any knowledge about fishing in this area?
And how is the season for fishing in Norway?


there is two rivers who is...

if you search the internett im sure you will find several good river in the south :D

The Salmon season in Norway...

The Salmon season in Norway is over now, so I guess the 20+ salmon will have to wait.

But I am wandering what kind of fishing S-Norway has to offer in November, as I will be there around the 10th. Are there any lakes or rivers still open, or is the coast perhaps my best bet?


i dont know about any fishing...

i dont know about any fishing lakes in the south becouse im not from the south but fishing in the sea could be VERY good

Depends on where you are...

Depends on where you are going. I can give you hints about area round Kristiansand :)
