It is permitted to use most types of fishing equipment in the mountains. Many people use otter boards for fishing in mountain lakes, but most prefer to use a rod. The tackle should be light, with a line that is preferably not much thicker than 0.25 mm and small hooks. Small spinners and spoons also work well. Some mountain lakes are ideal for fly-fishing. 

The best salmon rivers are
Aura in Eikesdalen
Batnfjordselva in Batnfjord
Driva i Sunndal
Eira in Eresfjorden
Hustadelva at Hustad
Malmeelva in Malmefjorden
Moaelva in Sylteosen
Oselva in Kleiveosen
Rauma in Romsdalen
Surna i Surnadal
Tressa in Tresfjord
Visa in Vistdalen.

Sea trout migrate up the Oselva river and freshwater trout can be fished in the Visa, Moaelva and Hustadelva rivers.

A State fishing licence is required and can be purchased at any post office. Fishing permits can be bought locally near the rivers.
