Perhaps the most stunning occurrence of the natural world is the Aurora Borealis. It can only be vaguely explained by science but the phenomenon is very discernible and breathtaking.
The Aurora Borealis, also called the Northern Lights is one of the lures of Norway. Because of it, visitors from all over the world visit the place to awe in that strange phenomenon. Another spectacular lure of Norway is the ice fishing Norway. During these winter times when Aurora Borealis manifests itself on the skies, ice fishing also becomes very good, with hundreds of hungry fish species ready to chow on anything.
Many of the Norwegian lakes inhabitants are active even in the coldest time of the year. That makes ice fishing Norway often rewarding. Plus in Norway with at least 450,000 fresh water lakes and tributaries, there’s no shortage of lake destinations for ice fishing Norway.
Norways Fjords, Sj, Mjsa, Vatn, Tjern, Jvrsj, and Jvrre make up the estimated 450,000 bodies of water found in Norway. Some of these lakes, the Vatn, are small and shallow, making ice form easily, and a good few of them, the Mjsas, encompass an area of more than 5 square kilometers. These lakes freezes over slowly but also offer bigger and more enjoyable game species.
Salmon is the biggest treat of ice fishing Norway. Though they can be caught off winter during their spawning runs on one of the numeral fjords, some landlocked kokanee salmon can only be caught on bigger lakes. And salmon is very much active whole year round making salmon ice fishing Norway a pursued interest even in the coldest long winter months.
Rainbow trout, largemouth and smallmouth bass and even northern pikes and muskellunges are also among the abundant game species available for ice fishing Norway. The northern pike especially, and some salmon specie is made available with less restriction by the law. Fast grabbing crappie and yellow perch can also be caught in one of the smaller Norwegian lakes.
The amount of Norwegian lakes to fish, the abundance of game species, plus the rare treat of the Aurora Borealis, all these makes up for the finest ice fishing Norway!
Don’t delay, pack those vacation bags now and start early. As a general rule to all ice fishermen, always look to smaller and shallower lakes to ice fish in. It may not be enough to land a pike or a 15 pound lake trout, but the abundance of crappie and perches can sustain any appetite for ice fishing until those larger lakes like the Mjosa, will have enough ice to sustain some ice fishing Norway.
