Welcome to Munkfors Fisheries Management Area!

We offer interesting and varied sport fishing, especially in the Klarälven around the Old Mill and the power station. Here is Klarälven's largest waterfall with many exciting fishing spots. North of the big fall is Hästskoholmen, which can be reached via a pontoon bridge and there is a windbreak and barbecue area. Hästskoholmen is a nature reserve with interesting fishing for whitefish, also perch and pike. The fisheries conservation area also includes fishing in certain lakes around Munkfors, i.a. Västra Sundtjärn where Klarälvsöring will be planted in 2022. Many small streams and rivers with brook trout can be found, for example, in the lower part of Ranån downstream of national road 62. A number of wind shelters, which will be adapted for the disabled in 2022, are available around the fishing grounds in Munkfors.
