The Lakselva runs through Porsanger in the Finnmark county of north Norway and has for many years been an unknown fishing river in comparison with the bigger rivers in the area. In the recent years this pearl of salmon fishing has caught the attention of anglers that are looking for big salmon. The average water level is only 26 m3, but for the last years it has shown to be among rivers with the highest average number of big salmon per season and for the last years many salmon between 40 and 50 lbs have been seen with the record standing at 55 lbs, but several fish lost have been bigger than this…
If easy wading, floating lines, riffling hitch and a true big North Atlantic salmon is what you are after then Lakselva is the perfect spot for you. We offer six rods exclusive fishing where every angler has access to a lot of fishing water in this fly fishing paradise. Come and fish in peace and quiet in the midnight sun and have many of the best places for salmon fishing only for you in this amazing part of the continent.
