Welcome to Munkfors Fisheries Conservation Area!

We offer an interesting and varied sport fishing, especially in the Klarälven around Gamla Bruket and the power station. Here is the Klarälven's largest waterfall with many exciting fishing spots. North of the big fall is Hästskoholmen, which can be reached via a pontoon bridge. Hästskoholmen is a nature reserve with an interesting fishery for whitefish, including perch and pike. The fisheries conservation area also includes fishing in some lakes around Munkfors, as well as many small streams and rivers with brook trout. Signal cancer to a small extent is found in the Klarälven river. A number of windbreaks, which will be adapted for the disabled in 2022, are available around the fishing grounds in Munkfors.
