Fishing opportunities in rivers, lakes and the fjord in Eidfjord.
Fishing in the fjord is free. For fishing in rivers and lakes for sea trout, you also have to pay a fishing fee in addition to the fishing license at http://fiskeravgift.miljodirektoratet.no/ . The fishing fee is not necessary for fishing in the mountains (only for fishing for salmon and sea trout).
In the Hardangervidda there are many lakes stocked with mountain trout. Sale of fishing licenses at the tourist office, the mountain lodges and at the YX-Eidfjord gas station. More information at the tourist office.
Rules for salmon fishing: wild salmon are protected, which means they should be let loose.
For trout fishing in these rivers: Simadalselva, Eio, Bjoreio, lower part of Veig and in the Eidfjord lake you can buy the licenses at the YX-Eidfjord gas station. Price per license: Nok 70 - 300 per day.
In the Eio river it’s possible to hire a fishing guide with fishing equipment. Contact Eidfjord Sport fishing, Jesper Nielsen, tel. +47 99 39 87 54, email: firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.eidfjordsportsfiske.no/
