Fishing in Såken
Lake Såken is located a few miles from Borås in Sjuhäradsbygden in Svenljunga local authority. Såken is part of Ätran's catchment area and is part of Projekt Ätranöring, which works to increase the population of Ätranöring (trout) in the area. For the last few years, zander fry has been added in order to increase stock, and zander grows well due to the large amount of small bait found in the lake. Eels are also regularly added. In addition to pike, there are pike, perch, white fish, rudd, eel and cisco.
In addition to excellent fishing in a challenging lake, Såken offers a nature experience beyond the ordinary with forests, rocky beaches and vertical rock walls, as well as beaches for those who do not wish to fish. There is also room to park a caravan or camper near the water.
A fishing license for the Såken lake network is also valid in the lakes of Mellsjön, Frammesjön and Yttersjön. Other streams, rivers and nearby lakes are subject to fishing bans.
Boat hire is available and contact information can be found on the fishery conservation area's website.
