The river is about 150 meters long, and is quite swift. The fishing in the river itself is more sensitive to the water flow compared to Sagmestereidet. At high or very low water flows, the fish mainly stands at the inlet/outlet of the river. The fishing in the two lakes is normally good throughout the season. In the main part of the river, you would normally choose to fish with angler worm. In the outlet, fly fishing and fishing with spoon/spinning bait is used. Our guests have exclusive rights for fishing on the riverbank closest to the lodge.
The river flows into the Eide lake. The fishing is normally good throughout the year. The few people that live in the area have fishing rights in this lake (maximum two boats). If this is your first time in this lake, we recommend a chat with one of the locals for tips on fishing techniques.
