There is approximately 5 km length were you can fish. You can fish from both sides of the river and from boat. The area is suitable for fishing with lures, worms and flies. Parts of the river is very well suited for fly fishing. You can fish salmon here from July 1st until September 15th. Trout fishing on the «Grong card» until June 30th.
