You’ll find the Ödevata Fishing Camp in Småland Province offering lodgings and activities for small and large groups in the midst of wondrous lakes and enchanted forests. The inveterate fishing enthusiast can pick and choose from among many types of waters, ranging from shallow clear-water lakes to magical forest tarns. In five of the lakes you can hire boats and book a fishing guide. It is to this, the southernmost virgin wilderness in Sweden that Malin and Magnus extends a warm welcome.


We speak Swedish and English at Ödevata FiskeCamp.


The fishing-season lasts the whole year. Spring fishing for pike begins in April-May. From June through August summer fishing pike, pikeperch and perch are the goal. September through November offers more of the same, while winter fishing in January, February and March focuses on pike and perch.

You can also rent fishing equipment and life jackets. A fishing guide can be booked. Most fishing sites are accessible from the shore and docks in the camp. Magnus, your fishing host, was born here and as he grew up among the area lakes, he knows them in and out. 

Fishing equipment

There are more than 100 lakes in the Emmaboda municipality. We sell fishing licences for eight of them and have boats in five. The primary lake fishing is for pike, perch, bream and tench, but we also have excellent pikeperch and rainbow waters. Starting at the camp, the lakes are located within a 20 km radius. For pike and perch the equipment range is broad, including jerk, spin, coarse fishing and trolling. You can also fly-fish for pike!

Fishing regulations

Pikeperch – minimum length 45 cm, one/day/angler; Pike – min/max 40-70 cm, one/day/angler. We recommend C&R as the natural way to fish, done with respect for the fish. No fish are allowed to be taken away from the camp and brought home.
