Fishing in Skaraborg


The Skaraborg district in west Sweden is tucked between two of Europe’s mightiest lakes; the Vänern and the Vättern. For these latitudes there is an amazing variety of fish including pike, pike perch, salmon, lake trout, brown and rainbow trout, perch, char, tench, chub and bream. The countryside, the deep dark forests, the pretty, cultivated landscapes and the many lakes, rivers and streams, offers unique opportunities for all predator fishing specialists, fly-fishermen, coarse-anglers as well as families searching for a memorable fishing-adventure. In deep crystal-clear lake Vättern big salmon, trout and giant char won’t be hooked without a fight.



Challenge the pristine waters of the Vänern archipelago in pursuit of monster-pike or go trolling on the open water for the famous landlocked salmon and trout. For fly-fishing or coarse-angling, try the many smaller, fish-rich lakes, winding rivers and streams. Skaraborg is characterized by the variation of waters along with the possibilities for all kinds of angling. The decision is easy – welcome! Accommodation possibilities: Lake and riverside cottages, campsites and larger hotel complexes all near to the fishing.
