Rena river is one of the best and most beautiful rivers for trout and grayling fishing. It is characterized by many picturesque sections of streams where grayling and trout rising side by side. On the quieter parties the chance to catch whitefish on dry fly is very high.
Rena river has its own fly-fishing zone that extends from Storsjødammen down to Lindstad. In this zone there are many who have had their best ever fishing, with trout over four pounds.
If you come here in July you can experience massive caddishatching that Rena river is known for, and that is an experience in itself.
There are also good opportunities for pike fishing in the quiet sections of Deset and
in the artificial lake Løpsjøen.
Rena river is sometimes referred to as a "difficult" river, some days the fish are rising everywhere, while other days it is almost completely silent. But my experience is that there is always a fish rising somewhere on the river ...
In Rena river it is allowed to take a wild trout per day at a maximum of 40 cm, and a grayling on a maximum of 40 cm. Stocked trout has no bag limit. Sik, there is no catch limit. The hook should be without a barb, or it should be tucked down (see Åmot Elvelag for more information)
These rules have contributed to the average size of grayling and trout in the Rena river is at a high level compared to many other rivers in Norway and Europe.
