Tregde has always been a guarantee for satisfied guests. Many started their "Norway career" here as an enthusiastic and successful fisherman. The fishery is versatile in terms of species but also in terms of fishing spots and type of fishing. It is a location that is also fairly sheltered from the wind by the numerous islands and reefs in the archipelago. There are no less than 50 different species of fish swimming here.
The fishing spots can actually be divided into two types. The shallower part up to about 80 meters. With lighter material it is fun to actively fish around the islands for pollack, coalfish, mackerel, hake, flatfish etc. Don't forget to drag a small spoon or crankbait behind the boat on the way in and out to the open sea. Chances are big of catching a sea trout. In the deeper parts that are not far offshore and down up to 300 metres deep you will find the larger fish that will have to be fished with heavier material. Ling, cod and coalfish but all just a bit bigger and heavier. The seabed structure here is erratic and offers a true eldorado of possibilities for fishing. After fishing, many of the fishermen come to the restaurant at the pier to tell their story of the day and share their tips, tricks, catches and 'almost catches' with each other while enjoying a beer.
Besides fishing at sea, there are also opportunities to fish for trout and salmon. This fishery is very suitable for fly and spin fishing. There are some private spots available at the river Mandalselva in front of the first waterfall. With fast boats it is possible to sail here from Tregde. The licenses for this fishery are limited so it is recommended to book early.
The trout lake Ogge:
A break from the wind and perfect for possible lost days. This lake is situated 30 kilometres west of Kristiansand . This 20 kilometre long lake is filled with island and has a good stock of wild river trout, perch and brown trout. The record is an impressive 4.2 kilos of brown trout. The average is around 500 to 700 grams. For the enthusiast it is a good idea to bring a light spinning rod with small crankbaits, spoons and blinkers. On the spot you can rent a canoe or boat. Price of the permit is 40 NOK / day and 80 / week.
The swimmingpool and restaurant are opened during the summer- holiday period
