In Värnamo municipality you will find very exciting waters with most of our Swedish fish species. In several of the lakes it is possible to rent a boat or launch your own boat.
The Far East is a large lake with an equally large species variation. Both pikeperch and pike over ten kilos have been caught, and there are good stocks of bream, roach, eel and tench for anglers. There are also plenty of sandy beaches by the lake for those who want to take a relaxing break in fishing.
Other lakes worth visiting are, for example, Rusken, known for its rich pikeperch population, and Furen. The furrow holds eight different species where the pike and pikeperch are perhaps the most interesting. Two lakes where both trolling and vertical fishing are effective methods for good catch!
If you want a real challenge, then go to Bolmen! Sweden's tenth largest lake, which contains as many as 26 different species. The most common are pike, pikeperch and perch, all of which are available in large specimens! The infinitely many bays and islands are fine biotopes for large fish, and a beautiful environment for the fisherman.
Flåren is also well worth a visit. A rocky lake with an archipelago feel and fine stocks of pike, pikeperch and perch.
For fly fishermen, Kalvsjön in the eastern part of the municipality is recommended. Here are fantastic rainbows and trout in a scenic environment!
When fishing and staying in nature, the Right of Public Access applies, which means freedoms but also consideration and responsibility. Eels occur in some of the municipality's lakes. Eel fishing is allowed more than three definitive obstacles to migration from the sea, but the minimum size is 70 centimeters in all waters.
