Just outside of fishermen’s cabin there is immediate access to the pier, boat and fish fillet table with a superstructure, lights and water. At Fjord Tourist in Stavang you’ll have the possibilities to fish as you wish; deep sea fishing, fishing in the fjord or in the river.
There are 3 boats for hire.

Boat nr. 2 and nr. 3: Hobby 555 19-foot boats with 50 HK Suzuki 4-stroke engine, chart plotter/ GPS/ echo sounder, 8 pole holders (new in 2018).
Regatta life jackets and rod holders are included in the price when renting a boat. Please specify which boat you want to rent when ordering. If you wish to rent a Snekke (old wooden boat) it can be requested when ordering the rorbu apartment or in advance. It is possible to book a sea charter with a Goldfish Tender boat and a personal guide. This boat is mainly for guided tours.
The area for sea fishing outside Stavang is often sunny and has little wind and rainfall. Mackerel and herring go straight past the rorbu apartment and into the bay where the boats are located. 20 m from land you can fish flounder at 5-20 m depth. This is an excellent area to catch Cat- and Monkfish. In the fall in September and October, you can use light to attract and catch crabs. It is 30 min by boat to the cod spawning field at Vevring, one of Norway’s great cod spawning grounds. Often it is the perfect time for adventurous fishing experiences in the months of January, February, March and April when the sea is quite calm, and the cod called “Skrei” comes from the ocean to reproduce. There is fishing lake (fresh water with trots) 2 km from the rorbu apartment and you can drive all the way. You can also buy fishing licenses and go fishing in the nearby Svardalselva river.
