The mountain trout in Tyin is well known for its size and quality, which makes Tyin a popular lake for fishing. It's very accessible from land, with several pockets along the road where parking is possible. We recommend fishing with lure, preferrably 30-40 grams in order to cover a larger area. The local land owners fish with fishing nets Please keep clear of those nets when fishing. Tyin is a regulated lake and the water level will therefore vary.
From Fagernes, follow the E16 to Tyinkrysset. Exit on road 53 towards Årdal. At the intersection on the southern end of Tyin, you can choose to continue on road 53 to be on the south-western part of Tyin, or choose road 252 towards Eidsbugarden in order to reach the easter and northern part of the lake.
