There is a wide variety of fishing, with everything from crystal clear mountain lakes and magical forest ponds to winding rivers and flowing water.

You can find pike and perch in almost every body of water in Dalarna. In the north there are huge stocks of salmon, trout and grayling, and in the southern parts there are also zander.

Fishing with a guide

With a professional fishing guide by your side, the chances are that you will have a wonderful and memorable experience. Dalarna’s fishing guides know the local conditions well and can adapt the experience to match your requests. You can choose anything from a half day trip to a trip over several days with food, accommodation, borrowed equipment and transport included. Do you want to sharpen your casting technique or tie your own flies? Keep an eye out for the courses on offer.

Fishing by yourself 

In Dalarna, there are a lot of available places for fishing by yourself. The fishing areas are managed and run by local organisations and in order to fish you need to buy a fishing license for the local fishing area. If you need to update or supplement your fishing equipment, you can visit one of Dalarna’s well-stocked, specialist fishing stores.

Buy your fishing license right here. You can often buy your fishing licence at the fishing location itself, at ifiske.se, and from local petrol stations or campsites. Keep in mind that you should check any possible rules that may apply at the specific fishing location. It may, for example, be forbidden to fish during certain times of the year or with certain equipment.
