Nausta

Nausta is a river in Sogn og Fjordane county in Norway. It runs through Naustdal, and is a small and medium sized salmon river. From the old bridge across the waterfall Naustdalsfossen you can watch salmon conquer the waterfall in powerful leaps — unless they are caught by rivaling anglers on the banks of the plunging pool. Hooking the fish is difficult — landing it a work of art. The local landowners will show you the best fishing places.
