When?

pike fishing holidays Sweden

Peak pike fishing season is normally April-May and September-October. Though it is possible during June-August, it is considered to be off-peak season due to the water temperature. The size, weight and numbers vary greatly each season, and nearly every season the record would be broken.

In most lakes, you will also find perch and trout. Both has similar seasons. If you are instead in trolling for salmon and sea trout, season begins in late March-early June.

How?

pike fishing places swedish lakes

There are many ways to fish for pike. Methods include, jerkbait, swimbait, spin and fly fishing, and float angling. It depends on your technique, experience and equipment, which we will talk about below.

However, the most important thing to know is that in majority cases it is catch and release! It is always so unless stated otherwise. Be sure to double check beforehand! A picture is always fine without any danger to anyone or anything.

Fishing licence

In most scenarios you will need to purchase a fishing license, especially in smaller lakes. However, it would be best to ask beforehand. So far, you don’t need a license to fish in lake Vättern. You can buy licenses from the nearest campsite or farmstay.

Boats

Many places offer boat rental, however, they are limited in number so you need to book in advance. There are other options, such as kayak, canoe and motorised boats. Motorised boats tend to be rarer and more expensive.

Equipment

If you didn’t bring your own equipment, many places offer fishing equipment rental or sale. Again, due to the limited availability, book in advance.
