Fishing at Sommenbygd in Småland

Description of fishing/locations: The Sommenbygd district fans out from the eastern shoreline of Lake Vättern between the town of Linköping on its northern edge and the town of Jönköping in the south, as it stretches eastwards towards the coast.

Record breakers
This rural area, with its lakes, rivers and streams offers a variety of coarse and game fishing. Sweden’s ’pike-perch belt’ runs through the area and the local lakes have given up some of Sweden’s best zander catches (source: Swedish Sports Fisherman Association).  If muscly, fighting zander is to your liking, some of Sweden’s best zander lakes are here. And to top it off, at Svartån (’Black Lake’) a former Swedish record holding chub was caught. The new record holder might be waiting for you.

Coarse or game
The countryside here is mostly agricutural plains, dotted with high plateaus and, of course, the Lake Vättern coastline. In the morning you could be wrestling with a giant zander at your very own lake, in the afternoon you could be fishing for chub in fast running water or trolling the coast of Lake Vättern for salmon.
The fish species you can catch here are; pike, zander, perch, chub, ide, rudd, tench, bream, salmon, char and rainbow trout.

Accommodation: You can get a quality hotel stay just feet from a lake, or go self-catering in a cottage or cabin with lakeside views.
