Some information about Orkla
Orkla is one of Norway’s best salmon lakes, with a salmon-driving stretch of 88 km through the municipalities of Orkdal, Meldal and Rennebu. The catch statistics show that in normal seasons around 25 tonnes are landing, which for several years has led Orkla to pick up on pallets among the country’s salmon shells. Orkla is otherwise known as a river where it is really possible to get the big salmon on the hook. Almost a year, salmon is taken over 20 kilograms, and the biggest rows are usually hooked during the first weeks of June. Later in the summer there is usually a good insight of smålaks and intermediate lacquer. Many therefore prefer an exciting salmon fishing in the last few weeks of August.
