Welcome to our watery hunting grounds. The lake is a reservoir for the power station in the Ronnebyriver, which was dammed in 1949. It is about 3 kilometers in length and upp to 200 meters wide. The deepest point lies 34 meters under the surface. It´s water comes partly from the original river and partly from Lillån, a fresh brook feeding the lake even with oxygen. The easiest way to fish is from the boat, which can be rented at Hjorthålans Camping/Kafé.

You are allowed to fish spinning, with fly or to angle. The minimum size for pike-perch and salmon trout to take is 40 cm. The fishing card is to be shown on demand and does not entitle to catch crayfish. Mind the swedish Right of Public Access: “Don´t disturb, don´t destroy!”

In 1999 3000 pieces of fry from pike-perch were put out in the the lake. 2007 a pike-perch with the weight of 4 kilogram was taken, which shows that the population has survived. In 2003 250 salmon trouts à 500 g were released into the lake and in 2011 once more 2500 pieces of pike-perch were settled in our water. For 2013 the same amount is planed. Our grandpa-pike is still hiding in the riverside and makes one and another fishing man desparate. But to catch a tasty perch of 700 g or a pike of two kilo even beginners should succeed with and in summer 2011 three salmon trouts were fished with the length of 49 - 72 cm. Furthermore there are tench, bream and whitefish.
