Welcome to Åsnen, a fishing paradise of 15,000 ha of water and with a 740 km shoreline!

Åsnen is one of the largest fishing lakes in southern Sweden. The lake has many islands, fjords and coves, which provides diversity and variety.

In the lake you can catch pike, perch, goose and eel. Åsnen has a rich fish fauna. At the 1999 test fish survey, the following 14 fish species were obtained; roach, marrow, perch, cyclone, braxen, sutter, pike, nors, björn, sandpiper, gossip, leg lover, goose and sik. According to older test fish and oral data, id, elritsa, stone pencil, carp, trout and mold have also been found in the lake.

The availability of pike in Åsnen is considered very good. The test fish showed a very abundant supply of perch in the Christmas , the Kalvsviks fjord and the Jätafjord . In Skatelövsfjorden and Kolvatten , the supply was considered good while it was less good in the Horgefjord . Over the last ten years, the gösen has increased a lot and the lake has become very attractive for its fine gazing.

The average depth is the sum of measured depths divided by the number of measured depths and is usually about 1/3 of the maximum depth. The river is very shallow and its average depth is 3.1 m. The peak of the river is 14.2 meters, but the deep areas are small to its extent.

The eagle is a moderately nutritious lake. The water supplied to the lake, mainly from the mainstream from the saloon but also via the Aggån, is nutritious with high levels of total nitrogen and total phosphorus. The water leaving Åsnen via the outlet at Hackekvarn is nutritionally poorer. Lakes function as traps for nutrients and it is obvious that a large proportion of the nutrients added remain in the lake, both stuck in the sediments and occupied in the marine food chain.

The soils in the Åsnen area are mainly moraine and the terrain around the lake is essentially flat. The lake is surrounded mostly by woodland. At the northern shores of the lake there are barked beaches and flooded food fields. On the islands of the lake (960), as in the southeastern part of Åsen, there are a lot of deciduous forests.

The lake is very flat with many coves as it consists of a number of mountain sediments that together form a lake. Its coastline, mainland and islands together, is 74 miles. The surrounding beaches of the lake are dominated by rocky and blocky soils with barrels and deciduous forests. The beachside plants consist of bushes, rice, grass and herbs. More open coastal areas are found in connection with the communities and in agricultural intensive areas in the northern fjords of the lake.

Åsnen has a flat bottom topography and has much of a very rocky and blocky bottom with many cuts and grains. Most of the stones and blocks are found in the southern parts of the lake, which can be seen on the older steamboat map over the lake. (The map is included as an attachment to the fishing plan.)

Vegetation in Åsnen is generally moderate, found in the shallow fjords of the lake and dominated by leaf wolves, foxes and water lilies.

Åsnens FVO

Åsnens fiskevårdsområde association manages the fish in Åsnen's fishing area in Skatelövs and Västra Torsås parishes in Alvesta municipality, Jäts and Kalvsvik parishes in Växjö municipality and Almundsryds, Urshults and Väckelsång parishes in Tingsryds municipality, Kronoberg County.

The fishery area is divided into three care areas (North, South, East) and the association's activities shall cover all fishing in the area.

The purpose of the association is to coordinate the fishing industry's fishing and fishing activities, to promote the common interests of fishermen, taking into account the regulations governing fishing activities and giving fish to the public.

Ever since the management of the fishing in Åsnen was organized, fisheries management measures were largely made up of fish stocks. Particularly intense were the expansions during the period 1930 - 1980 when the fishermen's associations of the lake mainly planted large amounts of eels and poultry in the lake. However, exposures of cyclops, whales, hunters, trout and signal scales have also occurred over the years. During the past 20 years, the release program has exclusively included gås, eel, mirror, trout and signal crayfish.

The association has published a map of the lake in 2014, and in the next few years, the deep-sea Åsnen will also have a very good fishing and boat chart.
