This summer, we had the opportunity to take two trips to Suldal in Norway. Suldal is known for having some of the biggest wild salmon in the country, with average weights often exceeding 10kg.
Our first trip was in July, when we fished in Sandsfossen. The fishing in this area was fantastic, and we were able to catch several big salmon. The average weight of the fish we caught was around 10kg, which was truly impressive.
We mainly used spinning rods with weighted flies to allow the fly to sink fast and bounce near the bottom of the fast current. I was able to land one on my fly rod as well near the sea!
In September, we returned to Suldal for another fishing trip. This time, we fished above the waterfall at Øvre Høse. The fishing here was not as good, due to being late in the season. We saw many fish, but they would not go for the fly 😭.
Overall, our fishing trips to Suldal this summer were a huge success. The salmon in this area are truly massive, and we were able to catch some truly impressive specimens. We can’t wait to go back and do it all again next year.
