The Göta River - Sweden's largest river - was once widely renowned for wild nature, dramatic falls and rapids, and not least for giant salmon and large trout.
The northern river stretches from Vargön's power station in the north, to the Strömkarlsbron-Malgöbron-Klaffbron in Trollhättan in the south.
In the river itself, the fishing is mainly focused on coarse pike, perch and pike, and on large adult lake trout. The first-mentioned trio can be found mainly along the calm floating parts, while the trout are concentrated to the currents in Vargön, Stallbacka and Trollhättan.
Eel and lake are also found along the entire route. In the wide vegetation belts at Karlsberg large quantities of carp fish thrive, to the delight of the meter!
To the north is also counted Karl's grave between the Gropbron in Vänersborg and Brinkeberg's hill. A channel about 5 km long, which is used especially for competition.
