WELCOME to Stor-Elvdal
Glomma is one of Norway’s best inland fishing rivers. Every year a large number of sport fishermen from all over Europe visit the river in search of exciting fishing- and nature- experiences. Glomma holds a lot of fish, and it is possible to catch rather large fish. Here you can find great a variety, from silent, deep pools to smaller runs and waterfalls. The riverbed is mostly easy to wade and well suited for fly-fishing. In Glomma you find species like trout, grayling, pike and gwyniad. In nearby lakes and small pounds you find trout, perch and a few holding char.
