Go fishing in Fjord-Norway

Fishing in the Fjords of Norway


The area around West Cape is great for fishing. To fish the Fjord is probably the most common, but you can also fish from the shore at several places, like Kråkenes. We have also got  rivers to fish and small mountain lakes. 


Fishing in the Fjord

The Fjord Vanylvsfjorden is great for fishing. The rich fishing banks in the sea around West Cape ensures a relatively steady, rich and varied existence of fish sorts in the Fjord. 


Some of the most common fish sorts is coalfish, pollack, haddock, cod, mackerel and herring. But here is also a lot of other sorts like ling, bream, Norway haddock, wolffish, conger and flatfish.


We have extra boats available. For the house at Skorge, Skorgehøgda and in Småstranda a boat for fishing is included.


Both the rivers in Åheim and in Syvde are known because of their opportunities for salmon fishing. A fishing card is necessary in both these rivers. 


Fishing card and information on the Åheim-river is available at the BunkerOil gas station at Åheim





When is the best time to go fishing?

The sea is always moving from high tide to low tide. Often, you will experience a higher chance of getting fish when the tide is on its way up. Especially in half an hour around the high tide, the fish is extra willing to bite.


In early hours before sunrise and a few after, as well as in the evening is usually ideal times to go fishing. Not only because of the higher chance of getting fish, but also because it is often no wind and quiet.


Fishing in small mountain lakes

 In the mountains and hills in the West Cape region, you will find many small mountain lakes. Some with lots of fishes, others with only a few. 

When you are to go fishing in a lake like this, you should consider combining fishing in several lakes. Then you will have a higher chance of getting fish and at the same time see more of the beautiful nature around these lakes.

Hints on how to best bring the fish home.

The first thing you should do when you catch a fish, is to cut its throat. This will get most of the blood out of the fish. While you are still at sea, you might also cut out the guts. You may throw the guts out on the sea while the boat is moving, tens of seabirds will then probably show up an eat it, the remaining will be food for other fishes.


On land you should do the rest of the grooming of the fish, and pack it in portion packs. Remember that the plastic bags with fish must be dry when you put them in the freezer, otherwise you are risking not to get them out of the freezer again. 


Before you start on your way back home, you may pack the fish in special Isoporboxes, and isolate with paper and clothes. If you do this correctly, the fish will remain frozen for 50-55 hours.
