Stop fishing for salmon, trout and grayling at high water temperatures
The FVO has its own thermometer / flow meter and information about water temperature and flow in the river is posted on the website. www.balalven.se.
The Fisheries Meeting has approved that fishing for salmon, trout and grayling be stopped when the water temperature in the river according to the website is 18 degrees or higher.
Fishermen who have obtained a fishing license are not entitled to compensation for lost fishing days due to high water temperatures.
Other rules according to the regulations of the Swedish Maritime Administration.
- Those who fish are obliged to submit a catch report on trout and salmon over 50 cm within 24 hours after the end of fishing.
- Information regarding the species, length, number and whether the fish has been killed or re-released 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 fisheries inspectors.
The following inspection fees may be charged if the rules are violated:
- Killed salmon before 19 June SEK 2,200
- Violation regarding number of salmon and trout / year SEK 2,200
- Violation of the fishing ban 1/9 to 14/10 SEK 2,200
- Killing of incorrectly hooked salmon (read more below) SEK 1,100
- Unreported catch report SEK 1,100
- Not brought valid fishing license SEK 1100
- Information: In case of violation, you can be contacted by one of our supervisors or women. They will then ask for your personal information. 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 re-release fish that you do not need.
- To preserve the valuable large spawning fish, it is recommended that you re-release fish larger than the following dimensions:
Salmon over 90cm
Trout over 70 cm
Grayling over 45 cm
Things to keep in mind when releasing fish:
- Never touch the fish with dry hands.
- Leave the fish in the water while you loosely hook the hook with peang or seaweed. Hold the fish until it stands on its own, then release gently. Remember not to stress the fish unnecessarily!
Wrongly hooked fish:
- A really 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 incorrectly hooked, and therefore unconditionally re-released dead as alive.
