Measured by catched kilo salmon per fishable distance, Beiarelva thrones at the top as one of the very best Norwegian rivers. Since we introduced the new quota model, the spawning population of female salmon has increased by about 300%. Come to us and catch the dream fish of your life, joint the enthusiasm along the river and help us to keep focus on the salmon conservation!
Many thanks to all landowners and License-sellers who have followed the advice to report all catches within 15th of July. The figures shows a significant decline in catches compared to last year.
We encourage all fishermen to follow the rule by keeping the fish under water. Please dont pull it out from the water and on the rocks. Hold the fish in the net under water when removing the hook.
You will find the fishing rules and consequences by breaking the rules in the top menu - under "Information"> Fishing rules. We recommend that you to read the rules well in advance before you put on your waders 😊 Thank you so much for choosing to abide by the rules at any time :) Enjoy
From being in really bad shape after a round of gyro, followed by overfishing, a lot of people were worried about our beautiful river and its future. Working with the local authorities, norwegian salmon management, the municipality and the locals showed results. A short while after, we were able to witness a crazy salmon population turnaround.
From now on, we’re taking precautionary measures, restoring the salmon ladders and to make sure the now stable salmon population is able to move further upriver. The salmon and trout are doing fantastic, and our visitors will be able to witness that!
