The Verdalselva is a great salmon river in the middle of Trøndelag and at Østnes Camping you practically live on the river bank and have a short distance to the salmon zones at Østnesfossen waterfall.
The Østnes salmon zone is about 1500m, partly on both sides of the river. However Verdal Hunter and Fishing Association have several zones nearby. Østnes is the zone where on average most fish are caught in the Verdalselva river per year. Fishermen from many different countries come here and many come back every year.
Let yourself be tempted by this film clip from Østnes Camping and fishing zone.
