Try Your Luck at Fishing 

Nearby Risøyhamn Sjøhus, there are many beautiful places where you can try your luck at fishing. We particularly recommend Andfjorden and Gavlfjorden. 

Try your luck at fishing in Andfjorden and Gavlfjorden 

Andfjorden is a deep fjord that stretches between Andøya and Hinnøya. The fjord is known for its rich marine life, and you can catch both halibut, cod, haddock, saithe, redfish, and other whitefish species. Cod fishing is especially popular in these parts, and there are good chances of catching big fish.

You’ll find Gavlfjorden near Andøya, and it’s somewhat smaller than Andfjorden. Majestic nature and mountains surround Gavlfjorden, which is also known for its good fishing conditions. Here, you can catch species like cod, saithe, haddock, catfish, halibut, catfish, monkfish, and ling. 

Do you need to buy or rent fishing equipment? 

Whether you want to fish from the shore or from a boat, both Andfjorden and Gavlfjorden are well-suited. Fishing rods and reels are the most commonly used equipment in these areas.

Do you already have your gear, or are you purchasing for the first time? With us, you can buy everything you need to get fish on the hook. If you want to rent equipment for sea fishing, we have what you need. We offer complete fishing rods and flotation suits, and of course, we’ll provide advice and recommendations.

Remember that the fishing season runs from April 1st to October 15th.
