The river runs through Kvinesdal town centre and contains a growing population of salmon and sea trout. Fishing is permitted between June 1st and September 15th.
The 16 kilometre long stretch offers a varied terrain from tranquil waters to bouldering waterfalls and rapid runs. You can fish with spinning bait, fly or worm.
The river Kvina was once a rich salmon river. Around year 1900, the fishing rights were hired out to English lords. Following construction of power stations in 1960 and 1970, the number of fish was greatly reduced. Another contributing factor was the acidic rainfall. Towards the end of the 1990’s, work began to rehabilitate the river.
The efforts have been successful and the quantity of fish and spawning is on the increase. The prognoses are positive and we look forward to the coming fishing seasons.
