The Lakselv 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, and in particular Olderø Lodge.
Whilst the Lakselv is only a small river, the last few years it has shown to be among rivers with the highest average number of big salmon per season. Many salmon between 40 and 50 lbs have been seen with the record standing at 55 lbs. The two largest fish landed at the lodge in 2017 were 45 & 46 lbs.
If easy wading, floating lines, riffling hitch and big North Atlantic salmon is what you are after then the Lakselv is the perfect place for you.
