Salomon fishing in Eidselva river
The source of the river Eidselva is the deepest lake in Northern Europe – Hornindalsvatnet, which is 514 meters deep. The head of the river is primarily at the front of the lake and from both sides...
The head of the river is primarily at the front of the lake and from both sides of Hornindalen valley. Coupled with the size of the lake, this makes the water in Eidselva river crystal clear, even in early spring. The only thing that can discolour the water is if the smaller streams, which flow straight into the river, swell as a result of rain. The river once used to be tinted by clay silt when the water was high, but almost every bend of the river has now been reinforced, so that the only thing that can discolour the river is high water levels.
