In Växjö there are about 200 lakes to choose from, even in the city of Växjö. Fishing is offered in the lakes Växjösjön, Trummen, Barnsjön and Södra and Northern Bergundasjön. In Växjö extensive work is being done to raise water quality in the waterways and through this work it has improved significantly.
If you want to leave the city and city fishing in Växjö, you can instead look out into the beautiful Småland forests. Many of the lakes around Växjö are part of a 186 km long Mörrumsån water system, such as Helgasjön and Åsnen. Åsnen is a fishing paradise of 15,000 ha of water and with a shoreline of 740 km. It is also one of the largest fishing lakes in southern Sweden. The lake has many islands, fjords and coves, which provides diversity and variety. It also has a rich fish fauna, and you can catch pike, perch, goose and eel among many other things. Part of Åsnen's scenic environment is also a national park.
Helgasjön is located just north of Växjö. The lake is surrounded by varying scenery with several heights, woodland and meadow, with varying settlements. The lake has several wide fjords and intermediate larger and smaller islands, which form healthy and archipelago-like parties. There are also flicky beaches and bays with shallower water. The lake has a rich fish population consisting mainly of perch, goose and pike, but also brax, roach, lion, sooter and lake. It also has an old stock of trout. The lake has sheltered playgrounds for trout and fishing trails has been built to promote its stocks and development. During August and September, there are signal counts in the lake.
Mörrumsån itself is sometimes known as Holy Island and Helge and has a nice salmon river, but fishing for sea trout also works. As usual, the best fishing spots are very close to roads and parking lots. If you go for a while and dare to try out new places, much remains to be discovered in Holy, but deeper and more calm-flowing parties - but on the other hand they are virtually untouched.
Fishing and stay in nature apply to all rights, which means liberties but also consideration and responsibility.
"Cloudy, not so windy. Was out between 16 -21. The pike cut at 17 o'clock on the way to Södersudde. Extremely small strokes on trolling near Galtö at 20 o'clock, unfortunately nothing got caught on the hook that time." Rottnen
