Östra Lägern is a lake situated in the southern part of the Landscape Östergötland some 300 km south of Stockholm / 3,5 hours drive. It covers roughly 1 500 hectares (~ 3 700 acres) and has a maximum depth of 30 meters. In the lake are 52 islands of various seizes. The variety of fish at hand is described below.

Our society strive to obtain a high ecological status in Östra Lägern. This includes securing reproduction of the rare "River pearl clam" and arranging gravel beds for spawning Trout .
Free passages for fish are now close to be at hand from Assjön via Västra and Östra Lägern thru Bulsjöån to Lake Sommen, thanks to a great job done by Tranås Energy, who owns the water power plants along the way. There is only one minor obstacle left to restore at Oppeby kvarn. But plans are to start this project in the autumn 2020.
All in all migration of Trout and the other spices, will ensure genetic exchange between the former in locked populations, thus clearing the risk of degeneration and inbreeding.
