Upper Åsund's fishing area covers the entire Upper Åsund and part of the lake to approximately 1.5 km south of Fästeredsundsbron, a total of approximately 2000 ha. The lake is at most 43 m deep, but also has large base areas, the average depth is 15.2 m.
Ätran flows through the lake which offers a varied fishing in many species. This year there are two gay fishing competitions that attract participants a long way away. Many foreign fishermen have made Åsunden their favorite water and come back year after year.
The association operates an active fisheries management and has recently completed a management and development plan. This will lead us to manage the amazing resources of the lake in an ecologically correct and sustainable manner.
A brand new detailed depth map is now available. It is sold in weatherproof version wrapped and foldable for comfortable use in boat, on land or on ice. The map can be purchased at the Sports Fishing Shops, at the Bookstore or at the Tourist Office. Now there is also the digital map of the Lowrance plotters. This includes both Upper and Outer Åsund and Södra Sämsjön.

NOTE! Now the depth map above the outer Åsund is also ready and sold in the same places as above.
The Upper Åsunden Fisheries Area Association is an association of all fish owners around the lake and is responsible for fishing and fishing licenses.
Ulricehamns Fritidsfiskare is an ideal association, which is commissioned by the Upper Åsunden Fisheries Area Association to carry out fisheries supervision. Fästered's joint-stock association is also commissioned to carry out fisheries supervision.
