Salmon fishing in the Namsen and Bjøra Rivers is a great attraction. You can fish from land, try fly-fishing or fish from a boat at very reasonable prices. Long experience as a fisherman is by no means necessary for salmon fishing.
Contact one of the establishments offering overnight accommodation or the tourist information offfice, where you can buy fishing licenses and hire the fishing gear needed. In addition, fishing licenses are available at the local sports dealer's, who also keeps records of the sizes of salmon caught.
