Catch reporting:

  • Anyone who fishes is obliged to submit a catch report for trout and salmon over 50 cm within 24 hours of finishing fishing.
  • Details of the applicable species, length, number and whether the fish has been killed or reintroduced must be noted. This must be done via a form at Ifiske. You can choose that the catch report is not published on the website, but is only saved for the board and fishing inspectors.

  • Catch report not submitted SEK 1100
  • Not bringing a valid fishing license SEK 1,100
  • Information: If you break the rules, you may be contacted by one of our supervisors. They will then ask for your personal data. The board then decides whether an inspection fee is to be charged. If this happens, you will be notified of this and a payment card. The decision can be appealed.


  • Feel free to restock fish you don't need.
  • To preserve the valuable large spawners, it is recommended that you restock all female fish and fish larger than the following measurements:
    Salmon over 90cm
    Trout over 70 cm
    Grayling over 45 cm

Things to consider when reintroducing fish:

  • Never handle the fish with dry hands.
  • Leave the fish in the water while you release the hook carefully with pliers or pliers. Hold the fish until it stands on its own, then gently let go. Remember not to stress the fish unnecessarily!
  • If the fisherman catches a salmon during the permitted time that he judges to be so damaged that it will not survive, the fisheries supervisor must be contacted for a decision to kill the salmon. Contact details for the fisheries inspectors can be found on the association's website
    Killed salmon belongs to the village association where the annual general meeting for the year was held and must be handed over to them

Wrongly hooked fish:

  • A properly hooked fish should be hooked inside the mouth. The hook should sit in the mouth hooked from the inside out.
  • If the hook is on the outside of the mouth, the fish must be considered wrongly hooked, and therefore must be returned dead as alive.
