Good fishing tips in the Hoplavassdraget:
Summer: fishing is best from a boat. We recommend trawling and otter fishing. Boats can be rented from several landowners around the lakes. Net fishing is also possible. See fishing rules. We recommend trying your luck fishing for trout in Fossingelva. A path has been prepared from the mouth of the Hoklingen and a hundred meters down the river. There is also an adapted path in the lower part of the river. To get there, you have to walk to the south and back of the school in Åsen center. The rivers that flow into Movatnet may also be worth a try.
Ice fishing: It can sometimes be a very good ice fishing on our three large lakes. See, where we have marked traditionally good char places on the map. It may also be worth trying new places. Be aware of ice conditions, especially outside rivers, streams and at outlets. Hoplavassdraget Grunneierlag does not assume responsibility for traffic on frozen water.
