The fishing right is managed by the fishery management area associations, which consist of the areas' fishing right owners.
In order to fish in any of the areas' different waters, a fishing license is therefore required.
The overall fishing license covers most waters, but there are also some waters with special fishing licenses.
Find out what applies in the current water before you start your fishing. All fishing in running water is prohibited.
Foxen and Stora Le harbor fine populations of mainly pike and perch, but also of several different species of whitefish. Other species present for those interested in sport fishing are trout and salmon, although it is mainly in the southern parts of the area, as well as zander. Above all, it is extraordinary fishing for large pike that attracts anglers to Foxen and Stora Le. Individuals weighing up to 15 kg and sometimes more are caught here annually. After the pike fishing, it is the perch fishing that attracts as they also become very large adults in the lakes. The Struven/Stora Le and Foxen fishing conservation areas protect long-term sustainable fishing, so don't take in more fish than you need. Larger fish should always be released as gently as possible.
For up-to-date information on rules, fishing licenses and contact details, you should always read the information on the area's notice boards and on the information boards at the respective fishing waters.
Within the two fisheries conservation areas, you can catch, among other things, pike, perch, lake, trout, whitefish, zander, bream, roach and some other white fish. Pike fishing is most easily practiced from a boat in the summer and early autumn. In Stora Le, it is possible to launch a boat at a launch ramp at Holmerudsfors harbour. There is also a natural ramp at Gördsbysand, which is on the road between Selen and Fölsbyn. There is also a ramp in Lennartsfors and one at Sandviken in Töcksfors.
Foxen, Stora Le
Both Struven/Stora Le and Foxen's fisheries management areas were established in 1991 with the aim of promoting and developing fishing and fisheries management, to work with a useful management of the resource and to make fishing available to the public.
The associations prioritize environmental promotion measures that aim to improve the living environment in our many fishing waters.
A joint fishing license for both areas was produced in 2020, which applies to waters within the original boundaries of the Struven/Stora Le and Foxen fisheries management areas.
