In Värnamo municipality you will find very exciting water with most of our Swedish fish species. In several of the lakes there is the possibility to rent a boat or to launch a boat.
The wilderness is a large lake with an equally large species variation. Both gossip and pike over ten kilos have been caught, and there are good stocks of braxen, roach, eel and hunter for the meter. There are also plenty of sandy beaches at the lake for those who want to take a relaxing break in the fishing.
Other lakes that are worth visiting are, for example, Rusken, famous for its rich gösbestånd, and Furen. The fure holds eight different species where the pike and the gösen may be the most interesting. Two lakes where both trolling and vertical fishing are effective methods for good catch!
Do you want a real challenge, then go to Bolmen! Sweden's tenth largest lake, containing a total of 26 different species. The most common are pike, goose and perch, all of which are in large specimens! The infinitely many coves and islands make up great biotopes for large fish, and a beautiful environment for the fisherman.
Even Flåren is well worth a visit. A rocky lake with archipelago and fine stock of pike, gazes and perch.
For fly fishermen, Kalvesjön is recommended in the eastern part of the municipality. Here are amazing rainbows and trout in a scenic setting!
When fishing and staying in nature, the Alleman Court applies, which means liberties but also consideration and responsibility. Ål occurs in some of the municipal lakes. Ålfiske is allowed more than three definitive obstacles from the sea, but the minimum is 70 centimeters in all waters.
