Trout can be found in both the larger lakes and in smaller brooks and rivers. In the lakes it is usually larger, weighing in at between 2-4 kg. Many sports fishermen consider the trout ‘the big game fish’, superb both on the hook and on the table.
The largest trout hooked on a rod in this area weigh in at 11 kg (Lake Vänern). A smaller version called brook trout can be found in smaller waters where it lives its whole life. In some brooks of the Fiskeland area trout is completely protected and may not be caught.
