Lake Lygnern is located in Northern Halland and Marks municipality. The lake is 20 km long and about 2.5 km wide and at its deepest point it measures 50 meters. The lake reminds in many respects of the Vättern with deep water, steep beaches and a gentle behavior in unstable weather conditions. It is famous for its good pike fishing and unique trout straw.
Lygnerns trout tribes have been threatened by, among other things, power plant expansion and acidification in adjacent streams. Today, the trout stock, thanks to extensive limescale and an active fishing effort, is heading up. The stock present in the lake is genuinely and naturally reproducing. The average size of a Trout from Lygnern is around 1.5 kg with fish up to 7 kg. Other species to mention are whitefish, perch, eel, brax and nors.
In Lygnern you prefer to fish from a boat, but there are also good opportunities for fishing mainly from trout from land. The lie is drained via Sundsjön to the sea, through Rolfsån , which ends in Kungsbackafjorden .
The Lieutenant Region's FVOF works for sustainable fishing and a good fish care.
