Ellenösjön Östersjön fishing area
Shallow and nutritious lakes
Ellenösjön is located in southwest Dalsland and in Färgelanda municipality. The lake "shares water" with Östersjön, which lies east of Ellenösjön. Between the lakes there is Sundsbron and road 172. Valboån runs both to and from Ellenösjön. Ellenösjön is a shallow and nutritious lake with nearby farmland.
The surroundings are typical for farms, meadows and fields down to the lake. Especially the northern edge of the lake. The southern edge has more features of forest parties. More shallow swamps are found all around the lake. The lake has a maximum depth of only 7 meters. This means that in the case of heavy winds the water becomes slightly cloudy because the bottom is mostly clay. Ellenösjön is best known for its fine zander fishing.
Ellenösjön 310 hectares
Baltic Sea 140 hectares.
Pike, perch, zander, burbot, bream, tench, marrow, roach, white-bream, eel.
The whole year. Pike from April to November. Please observe limited times for zander.
Zander fishing is the most remarkable of Ellenösjön, although the perch and pike fish can be good as well. There are data about zander up to 9 kg caught in the lake! For the modern fisherman there are also great opportunities to get big breams and tenchs. The inflows and outflows are always "hot spots" but watch out for the limited areas.
