Vetlanda municipality has, with its countless pikeperch lakes and the upper parts of the species-rich Emån - which flows like a carotid artery through the municipality, a rich range of fishing opportunities almost no matter what fish you intend to attract!
Whether you are looking for a lake where you can experience a pleasant perch fishing with the family or a water where you can feel an action-packed pike fishing, there is something for you in the municipality's 38 fisheries conservation areas.
The area offers a very nice pikeperch fishing and is a perfect place to try vertical jig fishing, trolling or angling for pikeperch. As an angler, you can face many challenges, such as the elusive Färnan i Emån within the Repperdaorten and Kvillsfors fisheries conservation areas. During the early summer's hatching of Åsandslända and Sjösandslända, dry fly fishing can be really exciting, both in put-and-take water and in rivers, as it also attracts coarser fish to pick food from the surface. Fine pikeperch fishing can be found in Grumlan, Saljen, Flen and Flögen, among other places. The lower parts of Solgen also border Vetlanda municipality. Örken is a larger, nutrient-poor lake with exciting fishing, located in the upper parts of Mörrumsån's main catchment area.
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.
