Kjerva Camp

Fishery

THE RIVER

With its tributaries Forra and Sona, River is regarded as one the best fly-fishing rivers in Norway. The Stjørdal River offers a total of 85km (53 miles) of fishing and bears many similarities to the Tweed.

Water levels are predictable throughout the season because it is regulated by controlled releases at the Hydro power station higher up the river. The river provides many different challenges for the fisherman with an interesting combination of deep slow pools, rapids, plunge pools and riffles as the river twists and turns its way towards the huge Trondheim fjord basin.

It is one of the rivers that will benefit hugely from the bag-net buy-out in the fjord and nearby coastal areas.

Catch records already show a higher average weight and a marked turnaround of river- caught salmon compared with net-caught fish. Like most rivers in the Central Norway region the Stjørdal is well known for its big salmon and every year a good number of 15-20kg (33-44lbs) salmon are caught.

In early June the 40-pounders come in fresh from the sea to the lower parts of the river. There are normally good runs of medium size salmon and grilse during July and August. The river consistently features among the 10 -12 most productive rivers in Norway.

THE FISHING

Kjerva Camp holds 3 kilometres double bank fishing on the river. Six to eight guests are normally accommodated at Kjerva Camp. A rota system is in place for fishing additional beats when all 8 rods are occupied. This enables anglers to try out different stretches of the river and offers the benefit of some additional 15 kilometres of good fly-fishing close at hand.

The beat has some excellent long stretches combined with good holding pools including a number of very good fly-fishing stretches.

During the latter part of the season there are good opportunities for sea trout. In addition you can fish for brown trout in local lakes.

There are normally two guides per group of 6-8 anglers, but extra guides are usually available on request.

THE ACCOMMODATION

The Camp/Lodge consists of 6 bedrooms, 8 beds, 2 large lounges, 1 very large dining room, 1 large kitchen, 2 wash hand basins, 2 loos, 2 showers, all very typical Norwegian, all over 150 years old. The dining room is magical.

There are more than enough rods/reels/lines all excellent quality. They are Scandinavian type (you can buy flies at the camp). All you really need to take is waders and waterproofs or you can take all your own equipment.

Please note that when fishing in Norway, the fishing is booked for Monday to Saturday, however the price paid includes accommodation from the Sunday prior to fishing to the Sunday after fishing.
