The watercourse has a drainage area of approximately 100 km2 and is not affected by watercourse development. It currently has one of the country’s strongest strains of sea trout in addition to some salmon. Good catches are taken in both the river and the water of both sea trout, salmon, inland trout and roe.
Sea trout and salmon
The fishing at Sagmestereidet is normally good. The Eide river is about 300 meters long, and has an average water flow of 6 m3/sec. There are several good places for both fly fishing and fishing with spinning bait, spoon bait and angler worm.
On the back side of the cabin lies Eidevatn. The fishing is here very good, and many different techniques are used. In this lake, also our guests from Øvereidet and the local population (not so many) are allowed to fish.
The Eide lake is about 4 km long, and ends at the Øvereid river. In this river, our guests have fishing rights on southern side of the river, whereas our guests at Øvereidet have exclusive rights on the northern side.
An additional nice kind of fishing is trolling after sea trout and salmon in the fjord.
There several good trout lakes that can be reached with ease from Sagmestereidet.
Nedre Urstjønn (50 meters amsl) is a trout lake that ends up in Eidevatn. The lake is known for having bite-willing trout with size up to 0,5 kg. It is possible to use most fishing techniques. There is a small boat in the lake (for maximum two people).
Øvre Urstjønn (Djuptjønnet, 300 meters amsl) is a trout lake with fish of very high quality and good size. (Up to 3 kg.) The fish is a bit shy, so fishing is best in some wind, with grey sky/ rain, or during the night. There are good places to camp for the night. The nature is beautifull and you can explore a large natural chalk cave near by.
Upstream of Øvereidet there are many good lakes and streams for trout fishing. Please see the description for Kalbekkvika for details. Fishing in some of these lakes require boat in Storvatnet.
Fjord fishing (Deep sea fishing): The fishing in the fjord after salt water species is also good in the area. Common species are cod, coal fish, red fish, and hallibut.
Four boats are included in the rent, Two in the fjord, and two in the lake. The biggest boat (in the fjord) is 15 feet, and has a 20 Hp. outboard engine. Three additional 5 Hp engines are included.
