Korgen Camping is nestled idyllically right by the salmon river Røssåga. Here, you’ll find an easily accessible and well-facilitated salmon fishing area, with a dedicated zone for fly fishermen, fishing trails, and several shelters with fire pits. The river flows wide and calmly, making it ideal for fishing both from the shore and with waders.

The river Røssåga, originates from Norway’s second-largest lake, Røssvatnet. It has a long-standing tradition as an attractive salmon river, attracting many sport fishermen. The first English salmon fishermen arrived in the village in the early 1870s.

In the “old days,” when English lords fished here, one could catch salmon weighing over 25 kg, and even today, the river can still offer the occasional big catch. However, most of the salmon caught today weigh between 5 and 15 kg, while trout typically range between 2 and 10 kg.

You can find more information about salmon fishing on Korgen Camping’s website.
