Fishing

Urvold lies at the end of an dirt road used for forestry. This is a special place, a small valley with mountains rising up on both sides. The Urvold river flows past the cabin at a distance of a few meters. The first time you are there, it is difficult to imagine where the river flows out of the valley. The anadromous part of the upper river goes up to about 500 meters past the cabin.

Sea trout, salmon and sea-run char

Our guests at Urvold have exclusive fishing right in the upper part of the Urvold river. Here you will find sea trout, salmon and occasionally a sea-run arctic char finds its way up the river. Most of the char is caught in the lake or lower parts of the river. The watercourse is dominated by the sea trout, but salmon is present. The river is gin clear and offers a very special and intimate fishing experience. In Urvold you can walk along the bank and spot fish before you cast to them. The river is well suited for single hand fly fishing. The water level changes rapidly and the stretch upstream from the cabin is best on higher water levels. If the water level is low lots of fish pile up down in the Urvold lake, waiting for higher levels and further migration up the river. The river mouth is a hot spot! Our guests have 3 boats in lake Urvold at their disposal. Early in the season, we recommend a trip down to the fjord where you can fish the river mouth. PS! Guests at Ureidet have an exclusive right on the north side of the river mouth and lower river.

It’s also possible to buy fishing licence for the Åelva river, located 15min driving from Urvold. River Åelva is significantly large river than Urvold and holds considerably more salmon. Daily licence cost approx. NOK 300.

Guests at the Plahte Estate can also fish for salmon and sea trout in the Terråk river which run right through the town of Terråk.

Trout and arctic char

There is several good lakes in the area, both up in the mountains and down in the forest. From the cabin you can hike up to lake Skavvatnet where the trout is of good size and quality. The biggest fish we have heard of is 3 kilos. Lake Trollskardvatn is also a popular destination. If you want to fish lakes without hiking for hours you can visit the Glømmen lakes and lake Sandskartjørna.

Location

One of the most exciting things about Bindal is that the nature is so diverse. Only a few miles from the lush and open landscape of Åbygda you will find at Urvold. A small valley surrounded by mountains that makes it difficult to understand where the three rivers enter, combine and leaves as one. 

This used to be a farm, but the old buildings are gone and have been replaced by a comfortable cabin at the same spot. The area is now protected due to its unigue biology. The river bed is mainly lime stone, making the water exspecially clear and the taste is far better than any bottled water. 

The cabin is located next to the upper river and a dirt road makes it possible to drive all the way to the cabin.
