Fishing equipment 

Pike and pikeperch fishing are done
from the boat. Once the ice has melted, the pike can usually be found in shallower sections until autumn. In late autumn the large pike collect in deeper water, swimming under large schools of whitefish. Pike and pikeperch are usually taken via spin fishing, trolling and for pikeperch, vertical fishing. The lures include large jigs, spoons, wobblers, jerk bait and spinners. Perch is primarily taken with smaller jigs, spinners and small wobblers. We do not provide equipment.

Additional information

The fishing preservation area is part of the Färnebofjärden National Park. This is the point at which southern and northern nature meets in Sweden, providing thus an unusually large species selection in both fauna and flora.
