Within the Helige Å fisheries management area, fishing is available to the public in parts of Helige Å , lake Furen , Gemlasjön , Kråkesjön and Räppe canal .
In Räppe Kanal , which stretches from Öjabyvägen down to Räppe harbor, only fishing is permitted.
The highway bridge
The currents downstream of the highway bridge are classic. Here, the majority of all large bream and bream have been caught. You can see the fine streams very well when you pass over the bridge. However, be careful where you sink the hook because the fishing is only allowed downstream of the red-marked poles, about 100 m downstream of the bridge. The area attracts walleyes from several kilometers of calm water downstream and a hook baited with a piece of bread or shrimp tail here usually yields some really big walleyes every year. The sedge starts during the height of summer around the water lily belts. The largest documented bream is a summer fish of 1,300 g. The fish are in good condition, but a couple of hectares more should be the reward for whoever finds the bream before spawning. So far, no one has seen a glimpse of rum-stained sarvars, but no serious attempts have been made either. At the highway bridge, it has taken several large birch trees and roach of 800 gr.
On the slow-flowing sections downstream of the highway bridge, there are many nice stream banks and backwaters with overhanging willow thickets to fish from. Helige å divides into two furrows upstream of Bondgården and the eastern one is the most interesting. There are many ferns here, but the really big ones seem to be missing. Early in the spring and especially in the fall, the occasional nice roach has been caught on this stretch.
The fishing spots at the Fe are not really anything more exciting at first glance, but really big pike have been caught here. The Fe is the first shallow part of the river on the entire stretch up to Bondgården. If you go a little further from the footbridge that crosses the river, you can find nice fishing spots both upstream and downstream. However, the terrain downstream of the footbridge is not kind to a tackled 11 foot bottom measuring rod. At the Fe, large birches and sables have also been caught. Parking space for 2-3 cars along Öjavägen.
Wild Boar Den
Wild boar den is one of the larger deep dens in the river, both in terms of surface and depth, which is just over six meters. The name comes from the nearby wild boar enclosure with associated game restaurant. The river divides into two furrows a couple of hundred meters upstream and at Vildsvinshålan both furrows open and form several exciting fishing spots. Early spring fishing is good unless high tide prevents it. Roach nibbles best, but large birches can also be taken. Wintering ferns and sardines are, however, more difficult to court. Large pike are also said to have been caught in the Wild Boar Den.
Brinkehålan is the largest deep cave in the river. Here there are mainly many large birch trees, but also the occasional fir. Fishing pressure is low, there is rarely a specimen meter here. Brinkehålan is well visited by spin fishermen because there is free passage for boats between Brinkehålan and Gemlasjön upstream.
From Wild Boar Den to Fairy
Below the Wild Boar Den, Helige changes character. The river has been dammed to prevent flooding of surrounding farmland. When echo sounding the entire stretch down to the Fe shows the depth in the middle furrow to be between 3-7 m, with most of the depth around 5 m deep. Large parts of the river are bordered by willow thickets and large alders, and there are more and more interesting fishing spots the closer you get to Fe. The stretch between Vildsvinshålan and Feet has non-existent fishing pressure and those who like pioneer fishing have found the right place. Large birch, sable, pike and occasionally also fawn can be lured on the stretch. Availability is currently limited from land, but the fisheries management area is reviewing this.
Furen, Gemlasjön & Kråkesjön
Three interesting lakes for most whitefish species. The sardine fishing at water lily edges can sometimes be very good. All the lakes are quite difficult to reach from land, so a boat is recommended. If you mash up a spot in one of the lakes, you can have fun fishing because there are plenty of tench, bream, bream and roach. Ice fishing in winter has yielded several pike over ten kg in all three lakes and in Furen unexpectedly large perch, around 1.8 kg as the largest.
As usual, the best fishing spots are very close to roads and parking lots. If you want to go a bit further and dare to try new places, there is still much to discover in Helige å. However, there are not many stretches of stream with low fishing pressure, but mostly deeper and calmer parts, but on the other hand, these are almost unfished . The fisheries management area is working on improving accessibility to the river. Information about this and about suitable parking options will be on the website, but before that, remember to park so that you don't obstruct agricultural machinery and the like. Feel free to ask in the nearest house.
Holy Å Fishing Area Association was formed in 1985.
Holy Å is the name of the part of Mörrumsån's main ridge that lies between Helgasjön and Lake Salen. Within Växjö and Alvesta municipalities. The fall height between Helgasjön and Salen is about 21 meters. Most of the river is calm but is interrupted by shorter currents. The route includes several lakes, Bergkvarasjön, Kråkesjön, Gemlasjön and Furen before the outlet to Salen. Along the Holy River there is an extensive mobile outdoor life, mainly sport fishing and canoeing between Helgasjön and Getnögård in the lake Åsnen.
