The Beiar river has been treated with salmon fluke. In a small town where the river means so much, it turns into a local tragedy. Therefore, disinfecting is of the highest priority. In the Beiar river EVERYONE has to disinfect their fishing equipment and waders!
In total, there are 14 disinfecting stations. Some are manned, like the ones at the Salmon office (laksekontoret), others are at some places we sell licenses, and some are privately run. We made a list so that you can choose the one that suits you the best. It costs 100 NOK to disinfect for the first time, with Strand being the exception as its free if you’ve already disinfected, but come back to disinfect again after fishing another river.
To not be banned from the river, you’re to disinfect before you fish, and always carry the slip of paper we give you as proof. This way we know you’re following the rules, and we know we can keep fishing salmon and not have to treat the river with salmon fluke again. That would be catastrophic.
