Fishing in Mjøsa does not require a licence. Mjøsa is Norway’s largest lake and has stocks of large brown trout – a species that feed on other fish. Furthermore, it is the main spawning ground for the fast-growing Hunder trout. Cisco, smelt, and powan are important prey fish for the large trout. The most common fishing method for the species is trolling, i.e. where one or more fishing lines are drawn through the water after a boat. Mjøsa covers an area of 365 sq. km and is 117 km long. Its largest tributary is Gudbrandsdalslågen flowing in from the north. A total of 20 fish species have been recorded in Mjøsa.

Trout, perch, pike, powan, Arctic char, grayling, and more.

Special regulations and quotas:
Fishing with rod and handline is permitted all year round. Trolling is permitted from 1 May to 31 August inclusive, and from 1 October to 31 December inclusive. When trolling, only four lures per boat may be used. Lures with more than four hooks are prohibited. All trout under 50 cm caught in Mjøsa, measured from the tip of the snout to the fork of the tail, must be released back into the water – dead or alive.
