Robin Fjelldal Hemsedal 2016 13

Summer in Hemsedal is an angler's paradise, with long, fast-flowing rivers and numerous mountain lakes. The rivers and lakes are crystal clear and hold wild brown trout in their prime. The fishing season starts on Friday May 27 th at 08:00 and ends Wednesday September 15th at 24:00.



Due to extremely low water levels, all fishing in Hemsil, Grøndøla and Mørkdøla is closed from and including Thursday 08 September 2022 until the end of the fishing season, which ends on 15 September 2022. The reason for closing the river to fishing is the need to take care of our trout population.

Note: Mountain water covered by Hemsedal Elveeigarlag SA's fishing license is not included in the closure
