Gudbrandsdalslågen river


The Gudbrandsdalslågen river is one of Norway's best river for angling. With more thank 50 lakes and 100 kilometres of rivers and streams in the mountains in Lillehammer area to choose from, you can catch everything from perch, grayling, pike, powan and locale Mjøs trout.

Gudbrandsdalslågen is 300 kilometres long and is h2ided into nine zones. "Lågen" as it is called for short, is a wide river with all types of environment, from slow-flowing sections to vigorous rapids, but it is the slow-flowing stretches with flat silt and gravel bottom conditions which dominate.

Lågen generally has two flood periods each year. The first comes in May but does not discolour the water to the same extent as the more powerful flood which normally occurs in July, as a result of the snow melting in the high mountains. This flood contains silt from the glaciers of the Jotunheimen mountains, whose fine clay particles suspended in the water reflect light, giving rise to a chareacteristic green colour.
