The season starts at the end of June and ends in the beginning of September. The entire season offer good fishing, with least pressure in the beginning and end of the season. Grayling fishing is steady all weeks, and same for the pike. The big trout start to move later in the season when they head for the spawning grounds.

The camp surroundings are a paradise for non-fishing travel companions. Nature lovers can set off to pick berries and collect mushrooms or simply ramble through the unspoilt landscape.
