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.
The Oldero fly fishing Lodge is located on the “Olderøen” Island on the bank of Lakselv river only 100 metres from the home pool, one of the best pools in Lakselv which is one of the first holding pools after the big cromers have entered the river from the Atlantic ocean. The Lodge offers modern comfort in stylish newly built facilities (built in 2011 and upgraded again in 2016/17). There simply is no other fly fishing lodge in the North like the Oldero. The Lodge is not large by design (up to 8 guests) that makes the place more private. The rooms and communal areas are spacious and you will find every modern luxury at your fingertips.
