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

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

In the lake you can catch eg. pike, perch, pike and eel. The donkey has a rich fish fauna. At the 1999 test fishing survey, the following 14 fish species were obtained; roach, larvae, perch, broccoli, bream, whip, pike, snout, birch, sand creeper, pike-perch, bonfire, goose and goat. According to the older sample fish and oral data, id, elitz, stone simp, carp, trout and moth have also been found in the lake.

The availability of pike in Åsnen is considered to be very good. Sample fishing showed a very abundant supply of perch in Julöfjorden , Kalvsviksfjorden and the Jætafjord . In Skatelövsfjorden and Kolsvatten , the supply was assessed as good while it was less good in the Horgefjord . The past ten years, the bark has increased a lot and the lake has become very attractive for its fine pike fishing.

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

The donkey is a moderately nutritious lake. The water that is supplied to the lake, above all from the main inflow from Salen but also via Aggån, is nutritious with high levels of total nitrogen and total phosphorus. The water that leaves Åsnen via the outlet at Hackekvarn is nutrient-poor. Lakes act as traps for nutrients and it is clear that a large part of the nutrients supplied remain in the lake, both stuck in the sediments and absorbed in the nutrient chain of the lake.

The soils in the Åsnen area are mainly moraine and the terrain around the lake is essentially flat. The lake is mostly surrounded by woodland. At the northern bays of the lake are grazed meadows and flooded food fields. There are a lot of deciduous forests on the islands' islands (960), as well as in the south-eastern part of Åsen.

The lake is very flabby with many bays as it consists of a number of mountain sinks which together form a lake. Its shoreline, mainland and islands together, are as much as 74 miles. The surrounding beaches of the lake are dominated by rocky and blocky ground with coniferous and deciduous forest. The shoreline plants consist of shrubs, rice, grass and herbs. More open beach areas occur in connection with the communities and in agricultural-intensive areas in the northern fjords of the lake.

The donkey has a flat bottom topography and has over large parts very rocky and blocky bottom with many inserts and grunts. Most rocks 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 fisheries management plan.)

The vegetation in Åsnen is generally moderate, is found in the shallow fjords of the lake and is dominated by leaf reeds, reeds and water lilies.

 Free fishing for children and adolescents up to the age of 15. (Special rules or exceptions may apply, Read more...)

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.
