Fish stocks

You can catch anything from perch, pike, and pike-perch to salmon, salmon trout, char and whitefish. The use of fly, spinner, angling and baited net is allowed. In the lakes within the Glaskogen reserve the private landowners have the right to outsource nets, fish traps and osier baskets. It is not allowed to touch these!

More detailed information about fish stocks and which species are found in different waters and maps can be found at iFISKE.

During the last years, the fishing organizations have been working very hard to strengthen the stocks of fish. This has been achieved on the one hand through the restoration of rivers and streams previously used for log driving, on the other hand through the creation of hiding places in the water for the fish.

Why not make a visit to Glaskogen in the winter? During the last years the ices have been very nice, suitable for jig fishing and other winter activities such as long-distance skating and skiing.
