Highlights of Neiden
Dry fly fishing
Neiden really is a dry fly river. Here’s plenty of salmon pools that are ideal for dry fly fishing and even the big +10kg fishes like to come and take the dry fly. Best time for dry fly fishing starts after the flood has gone down. Usually at later June.
The biggest fishes come to the river in June. Then greater numbers of smaller salmon come during July and in the August it is small and big fishes in the pools already. Also big ones still come fresh with great numbers of sea run brown trout.
The river flows right by the road, so your time wont be wasted in hiking long distances. There’s about 50 good pools to fish and your guide knows where to find areas without other fishermen.
Kirkenes Airport in Norway is only half an hour drive away from the river. You can change the plane in Oslo to get to Kirkenes. Once you’re here, your guide is waiting at the parking lot and is ready to drive to your accommodation.
Eat your catch
It is allowed to take your catch here in Neiden and your guide can cook it right away there at the river side. Nothing better than open fire grilled fresh salmon.
Everyone would still appreciate that if we release all the big female salmons; if they’re not harmed too bad by the hook.
