Fishing license areas
It's not always easy to find the lake you're looking for, as it can be "hidden" in a fishing area that includes many lakes. Here we try to list them and make them searchable. We have chosen to report them on a municipal basis and to include where there is a municipal fishing license.
Many of our fishery areas offer you to buy fishing licenses online via www.ifiske.se. You can buy cards both on the website and through their app. It allows you to buy fishing licenses and fish anytime you want.
