For sensational Fly Fishing few areas can beat the area surrounding Koppang Camping. Uniquely positioned on the banks of the Glomma River Koppang Camping offers an ideal base for the experience of a lifetime. The Glomma River, also known as Glåma River, takes its rise from Aursund in the province of Sør Trondelag and flows down through province of Hedmark, Akershus and Øsfold.

If you want to fish in the Glomma River you are obliged to buy the Stor-Elvdal fishing license. With this license you are allowed to fish in the area between Atna in the north (where highway 3 crosses the river) and the border between Stor-Elvdal Community and Åmot Community. This covers nearly 80 kilometers of perfect Glomma fishing waters. Some minor sections of the river are not covered by the license. These sections should be marked and provide their own fishing license. The license that covers most of the Glomma is available at the reception.

The contents of the license can be found on the 'Fishing License' page.
