The Hart Norway Festival 2022 in Loppa!
This fishing lcation is situated directly opposite Soroya and is characterised by a particularly challenging bottom structure. It lies slightly east of Oksfjord, but the underwater structure here is considerably better for fishing. The island of Silda is 10 kilometres long and 4 kilometres wide and lies like a large protective wall in front of the village of Bergsfjord. Surrounding the island are plateaus rich in fish from 20 to 100 metres deep, next to which it goes directly into the deap up to 300 and 500 metres. Also around the island of Loppa itself are these challenging and very fish-rich areas. And that is all only 15 to 30 minutes by boat. These are the best hotspots for large halibut, cod, saithe and wolffish.
We consciously chose our location in Bergsfjord called Loppa. The reason for this is quite simple. Both the shelter and the boats at this location are optimal and the sailing distances to the fishing grounds are short. Loppa is located directly opposite the well-known island of Soroya and therefore in the middle of the strike zone of all species of fish that live here. Where there is little shelter from the weather on Soroya, Bergsfjord has an enormous amount of shelter through the islands of Loppa and Silda which lie directly in front of the village of Bergsfjord. Therefore, the chance of fishing days being lost at this location is generally small.
It is also possible for enthusiasts to take a walk to the higher situated Bergsfjordvatnet. This hike takes about 15 minutes and you end up at a beautiful mountain lake where you can fish for different species of trout. So take your light spinning rod or maybe even bring your fly rod with you. This is a welcome change and a special opportunity to catch these species.
