Boats and fishing

To fish in Glaskogen, the Glaskogen card and a fishing card is required. The Glaskogen Fishing Card is the result of a cooperation between the Glaskogen foundation, Stora Enso AB and the fishing organizations in Hillringsberg, Järnsjön, Stora Bör, Stora Gla, Sölje and Övre Gla.

The fishing card is valid for some 80 lakes and tarns in and around Glaskogen Nature Reserve. Fishing in running water courses is however prohibited.

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!

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.
