Pike and perch are native to Lake Boren, but are also found in Svartå River, as well as lakes Roxen and Norrbysjö. In the spring of 2011 a pike was hooked in Lake Boren measuring 121 cm.

A fishing guide for Lake Boren must be reserved two days in advance. A fishing equipment shop is located 5 km from Torpa. 

Fishing equipment

At Torpa Gård it’s Lake Boren that counts for fishing, preferable with spinning rod, but even fly-fishing. Some of the other nearby fishing waters offer slowly running waters suitable for both spin- and fly-fishing. Here we recommend slowly sinking jerk baits in bright colours. During the winter ice-fishing is offered in Lake Boren. From mid-July through mid-September Torpa Gård can offer cray-fishing.

Catch & Release is the rule here, with the exception of fish for eating during the fishing week. In the latter case a six-person group can keep 2 pikes and 10 perches for each week. Pike maximum – 65 cm; perch maximum – 35 cm.
