Residents outside of Finnmark may only fish with rod and hand-held line. Otter boards are permitted in lakes only.
Fishing with stationary lines:
- each angler may use up to 10 hooks in areas with restrictions on net fishing
- in areas without net fishing restrictions, there is no limitation on the allowed number of hooks used
In watercourses where anadromous species (salmon, sea trout and sea char) are present, restrictions for anadromous fishing also apply to inland fishing.
Use of non-motorized boats, canoes and kayaks are unrestricted. If you are using a motorized boat, please check current regulation with the municipality you are visiting. Requirements concerning drying or disinfection also apply to boats.
Inland fishing is permitted throughout the entire year.
It is strictly forbidden to use live fish as bait. Using dead fish from the same watercourse as bait is permitted.
