Innoset in Hovsfjorden and west

Selv om Holsfjorden ligger tett ved Fv. 50 gjennom hele Holsbygda, kan det være litt utfordrende å finne gode fiskeplasser fra land hvis en ikke er lokalkjent. Tilgang til båt er fordelaktig. Mye ørret av fin kvalitet fra 350 gram til nærmere kiloen. Større fisk på tre-fire kilo har også forekommet. Røye forekommer hyppig blant fangsten.

Fiskekort: Kiwi Hagafoss.
Bomveg: Nei



The river tat leads to Strandafjorden, with its large trout, which periodically migrate up from the fjord, has become a term for many fly fishermen. This part of the river has a strict management regime with special rules for fishing methods, gear, maximum fish sizes and zoning. Read the fishing rules carefully!
