Gesäter fishing area

Plenty of Pike, Perch and Mört.

The Gesäter FVO comprises two waterways, namely Töftedalsån and Örekilsälven that become one at the coordinates indicated on the map. The humus coloured waterways flow through a varied landscape consisting of both woods and cultivated land.

The Gesäter FVO puts a lot effort into managing its two waterways, focusing on restoring resting spots and adding individuals from the original trout stock. The Örekilsälven River empties into the Gullmarsfjorden below Munkedal and in its southern reaches hosts a much-appreciated fishing opportunity with rising salmon and sea trout. Work is underway on removing hinders to the migration upstream. Recently some rejuvenation of both the salmon and sea trout stock has been observed in the Gesäter FVO’s waterways. 

In this area, the most interesting challenge is fishing for trout. For success, focus on the traditional resting spots, such as behind rocks, stream edges, under overhanging shorelines or near to vegetation or branches/trees in the water. The fish are seldom picky when it comes to fly choice, but in general imitation caddis flies and land insects work better than mayflies.
