Destination Arctic Circle has some of the country’s best trout fishing. This is mainly due to the locals having become specialised in the field, and among other things, they have established camps and are ready to sail off to a good remote stretches of river.
Camps at Sisimiut, Kangerlussuaq and Maniitsoq are located directly on the river estuaries and consist of tents and a shared cabin with a kitchen and meeting place. Here you are guaranteed to catch fish, whether you try with a fly or spinner.
Also on both Sisimiut’s coast and the Maniitsoq archipelago, you can fish for the coveted redfish and cod.
Of Greenland’s four species of redfish, ‘big redfish’ are the most coveted among anglers. Red fish is a bottom fish, which is caught at depths of 100 metres and more. It can be up to 1 metre long and weigh up to 15 kilo. The fish are often in shoals, so once you have found a redfish site, you can usually catch many.
