In addition, salmon, trout, zander and whitefish in lakes No. 2, 5, 6 and 7. Good strains of whitefish are found in Nos. 2, 5 and 18. (See map for explanation of numbers.)

The bark
The bark actually consists of 3 lakes; Norra Barken , which stretches from Smedjebacken to the bridge in Söderbärke, Middle Barken (between Söderbärke and Huggnora) and Södra Barke n. Note that on some maps, Middle Barken is also distinguished as Södra Barken, which can be a bit confusing, then there are a few hundred meters of Kolbäcksån between them. Vevungen and Saxen are also connected to Barken and can be reached by boat.

The lakes are best known for the fine size of zander and above all trolling fishermen sometimes make good catches. Trout are also caught. There are pike of good size (Fiske För Alla No. 5, 2011) listed Norra Barken as one of Sweden's better pike waters). The lake is also known as a good perch lake. At pimp competitions, the winning weights are usually high. It is perhaps less well known that the lake also harbors some very coarse perch.

Flaten P&T (put and take water)
Continuous stocking of ready-to-catch rainbow, trout and char. The lake is very popular, during the ice season as well as other parts of the year.

Carp fishing in Snuvtjärn
In this small pond, carp from Aneboda (mainly mirror carp) were planted in 2004. It would be an exaggeration to say that they grew very large, but the lake offers a different and challenging fishing. If you want directions or tips, contact the marine manager on 0240-650528. It is possible to organize met competitions in the lake, with up to 12 places. There is a road barrier that is occasionally locked, but for competitions we can make sure to unlock at the entrance and exit.
ATTENTION! Only fishing with hook without barb applies here, as well as mandatory catch reporting!
