Ice fishing

There is something almost meditating about sitting or lying beside the hole and gently tugging the hook to try to catch the fish’s interest.

Snåsa - an ice fishers dream

Snåsa is situated about 130 kilometres north of Trondheim, and boasts more than 2000 small and large fishing waters in the municipality. A large number of these can also be fished when the ice has subsided. With a fishing license you have access to all the waters, and then you can easily start fishing - with a rod, hook and warm clothes.

Popular ice fishing spots

The three most popular waters with regard to ice fishing are Grønningen, Langvatnet and Heggsjøen, all of which can be reached by car. Here you can fish both trout and char. The largest trout caught during ice fishing so far was about 5 kg, and it was caught in Langvatnet.
