Within the Helige Å fishery conservation area, fishing is available to the public in parts of Helige Å , Lake Furen , Gemlasjön , Kråkesjön and Räppe canal .
The currents downstream of the highway bridge are classic. Here, the majority of all large ferns and larvae have been caught. You see the fine currents very well when you cross the bridge. However, be careful where you dip the hook for the fishing is only leased downstream of the red marked poles, about 100 m downstream of the bridge. The area attracts ferns from several km of calm flowing water downstream and a hook baited with a piece of bread or shrimp tail here usually produces some really large ferns every year. The cormorant starts during the high summer around the water lily belts. The largest documented cormorant 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 those who find the cormorant before spawning. So far no one was able to send in the perfect solution, which is not strange. At the highway bridge, it has taken several large birches and roaches at 800 gr.
On the slowly flowing stretches downstream of the highway bridge, there are many fine stream edges and backwaters with overhanging willows to fish from. The holy river divides into two furrows upstream of Bondgården and the eastern one is most interesting. There are many ferns here, but the really big ones seem to be missing. In early spring and especially in autumn, occasional fine roaches have been caught on this stretch.
The fishing spots at the Fe are not really that exciting at first glance, but really big chicks have been caught here. The fairy is the first shallower 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 gracious to a tackled 11-foot bottom fishing rod. Large birches and cormorants have also been caught at the Fe. Parking for 2-3 cars along Öjavägen.
The wild boar hole is one of the larger deep holes in the river, both in terms of surface area 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 makes up for it. Roaches are the ones that bite best, but large birches can also be taken. Overwintering ferns and larvae, however, are more difficult to flirt with. Large pike must also have been caught in the Wild Boar Cave.
Brinkehålan is the largest deep hole in the river. Here are mainly many and large birches, but also the occasional fern. The fishing pressure is low, there is rarely a specimen meter here. Brinkehålan is well visited by spin fishermen as there is free passage for boats between Brinkehålan and Gemlasjön upstream.
From Vildsvinshålan to Fe
Below Vildsvinshålan, Helige changes character. The river has been embanked to prevent flooding of the surrounding arable land. When echoing, the entire distance down to the Fe shows the depth in the middle groove of between 3-7 m, with most of the depth around 5 m depth. Large parts of the river are lined with willow thickets and large alarms and there will be more and more interesting fishing spots the closer you get to the Fe. The stretch between Vildsvinshålan and Fe has non-existent fishing pressure and those who like pioneer fishing have found the right one. Large birch, cormorant, pike and periodically even the fern can be lured on the stretch. Accessibility is currently limited from land, but the fisheries conservation area is reviewing this.
Furen, Gemlasjön & Kråkesjön
Three interesting lakes for most whitefish species. The osprey fishing at water lily edges can sometimes be very good. All the lakes are quite difficult to reach from land so boating is recommended. If you mash up a place in one of the lakes, you can have fun fishing because there is plenty of tench, herring, bream and roach. Ice fishing in winter has given several pike over ten kg in all three lakes and in Furen unexpectedly large perch, around 1.8 kg at its largest.
As usual, the best fishing spots are very close to roads and parking lots. If you want to walk a bit and dare to try new places, there is a lot left to discover in the Holy River. . The fisheries conservation area is working to improve accessibility to the river. Information about this and about suitable parking opportunities will be on the website, but before that, remember to park so that you do not obstruct agricultural machinery and the like. Feel free to ask at 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.
