Norway is home to many salmon rivers, with more than 400 rivers available for salmon fishing. Some of the most famous and popular rivers are the Alta, Namsen, Tana, Gaula and Lakselva, but there are many others that offer excellent fishing. Each river has different characteristics and therefore anglers must abide by different seasons, regulations and rules. 

For those looking for a unique and exciting fishing experience, salmon fishing in Norway is a must. The country's natural beauty and abundant salmon rivers offer anglers the opportunity to catch elusive Atlantic salmon and other species in settings that are second to none. 

However, this nice piece of a beast was catched in the Alta river, in Finnmark, northern Norway. This is a great Atlantic salmon newly raised the up streams the river (photo).
