THE FVO OF THE WELL
Välen is a clear water lake with an area of 266 hectares, with a maximum depth of 18 meters - the average depth is 4 meters. The lake also has several islands and inlets.
The lake, which is located just northwest of Fagerhult, houses a strong stock of pike where fish between 3-5 kg are common.
The well also has potential until larger fish exempla up to 15 kg have been caught.
But to get in touch with the bigger fish requires, as usual, patience, know-how and a good portion of luck.
Larger zander were introduced last in 2021 from Bolmen, but it has also been introduced on 3 previous occasions.
The perch has also developed very positively in recent years and most of the larger ones are often caught.
The bottom structure of the lake consists alternately of blue clay, soft bottoms and stone. lake vegetation is sparse in most of the lake, with the exception of the shallow bays in the northern parts of the lake where aquatic vegetation spreads to a greater extent. The lake's shores are mostly solid with elements of blocks and slopes along the east side. Välen's surroundings mainly consist of coniferous forest, but also pastures and deciduous forest are a common feature.
The opportunities to fish from shore are generally good, especially along the eastern side of the lake.
In addition to Välen, there are 2 smaller waters with associated fishing called Vrången and Skälsbäcks gölen.
Young people up to 15 years old fish for free.
