Fishing in Gloppen
In Gloppen we have a freshwater fishing permit, which is good for around 150 lakes and rivers in the region. At reception you can buy permits and get expert advice. You can also rent a local fishing guide who will take you to the best sites and give you assistance to hopefully catch the BIG one. The price for guiding is agreed in advance.
Fishing for salmon and sea trout
We have four rivers in the area containing salmon, which are AA/Ommedalselva, Gloppen River, Straumselva/Hopselva and Ryggjaelva. The first three mentioned require a fishing permit. Gloppen Camping has 2 permits a day for the upper part of the Gloppen River. Olav K. Henden and G-sport shops have 4 permits. The Gloppen Hotel looks after the rest of the Gloppen River. For Ommedalselva and Straumselva the permits are sold in Hyen.
