Fishing Guide Lars Lindahl, Wild Fish Sweden – 12', and Big Fish Sweden all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Sweden.

The most popular fish species you can target are Northern Pike, Pike Perch (Zander), and European Perch. Top fishing techniques include spinning, light tackle, and jigging. Lake fishing, inshore fishing, and nearshore fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

Sweden is a top tourist destination in Europe, and there’s a lot more to it than ABBA, Ikea, chocolate, and watches! It offers visitors incredible natural beauty, with 29 national parks and the incredible Northern Lights in the winter. There’s a rich history, which can be seen all over, from the palaces and castles to the medieval towns.

Yet the country is getting more and more popular with anglers because of its fishing opportunities. With over 100,000 lakes and a coastline nearly 2,000 miles long, fishing in Sweden is varied and a lot of fun for anglers.

Where to Go

There are many fishing hot spots to choose from in Sweden, depending on the time of year and what you want to catch. You can choose from a range of lakes, from the huge Lake Mälaren near Stockholm, to ones further south, such as Lake Mien, Lake Asnen, and Lake Tiken. You also have top Salmon and Brown Trout fisheries in the rivers Mörrumså, Torne, Lanio, and the Emån. Fishing in the Baltic Sea will also produce some great fish. This sea has a low salinity, which creates a perfect mix of freshwater and saltwater fishing and higher numbers of Perch and Pike.

What to Catch

There are over 140 species of fish found in the many different bodies of water in Sweden. Each body of water has its main superstar, but in general, the main species you’ll want to target are Pike, Perch, Pike Perch (Zander), and Baltic Salmon. The Pike fishing here is world-renowned, with some catches reaching up to 20 kg (45 lb).

The North Sea offers Garfish, Pollock, Cod, and Mackerel, compared to the Baltic Sea where you can fish for Pike, Cod, Salmon, Perch, and Seatrout.

When to Go

There’s something to catch throughout the year in Sweden. You’ll usually be able to find large numbers of your targeted species one month, but larger sized fish in smaller quantities another month.

If you’re fishing off the coast, book a trip in the spring and the autumn. The fish are likely to be closer to the shore then. However, you’ll be able to catch something in the Baltic Sea all year long.

The Baltic Salmon season opens in the summer. Perch can be caught all year round. However, you’ll have the most luck fishing for medium sized Perch in the autumn. Pike has its peak in the summer, although larger Pike can be found in smaller numbers in the spring.

During the winter, you’ll be able to go ice fishing. This starts earlier the further north you are. You’ll be able to target Pike, Arctic Char, Perch, Rainbow Trout, Burbot, Grayling, and Whitefish. Wrap up warm and bring extra layers. This can be fun for the whole family, even if you’ve never fished before.

What to Bring

The majority of captains will provide you with rods, reels, lures, bait, and a fishing license for the day. They’ll usually provide some form of snacks and drinks, usually buns and coffee, especially in the winter.

You should wear weather appropriate clothing for the trip. In the winter, this includes thermal underclothing with a waterproof outer layer and warm boots. Bringing a bag with extra clothes is always a good idea.    

The majority of captains practice catch and release, and even when the catch is legal will advise you to release it. Ask your captain what their policy is before your trip, so you know whether to bring a cooler along.

Book a trip to Sweden for the adventure you never knew you needed, while surrounded by nature and catching big fish. Fishing in Sweden is an unforgettable experience!

Be prepared for a variety of weather. We had rain jackets that we used to layer and keep warm in the morning, but by the afternoon, we were down to T-shirt’s and tank tops.

I had booked this fishing trip for my adult son and his girlfriend Lars took great care of them and they had a great fishing experience. Fish were not really hungry enough to bite. But the did catch some small perch and a Pike that was super fun to reel in.

Just had a fantastic full day with Lars, myself and my 13 year old son. Went in search of pike and even though they were not hungry that day Lars went the extra mile and made sure we both came away with a decent pike each. He also stayed out an extra 2 hours (unasked) as he was so keen to give us maximum enjoyment. Great day out, soo beautiful, lots of wildlife (ospreys and sea eagles) and Lars ,clearly knows his fish, wd. not hesitate to recommend.

We booked a half day morning trip with Tomas, who is super passionate, calm and very friendly. We boarded 6 big pikes up to 96cm and my 14 year old son also caught several. Would return any time and recommend Tomas highly!

Lars was very flexible and willing to go the extra mile to accommodate to any needs that you have. He was also knowledgeable and professional and we managed to catch some pike despite pretty cold temperatures. The overall experience was good, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Lars if you are interested in city fishing. Do just bear in mind that the fishing happens extremely close to the city and the boat will not be going very far out at all (probably just a 10 minute ride out from the port).

Med ekolod ombord kunde kaptenen lokalisera det ställe där det fanns gott om abborrar. Vi åkte med Lasses båt från Siarö bort emot Bergshamra i norra skärgården. Det var gott om fisk och fiskelyckan var god.

I was out with Lars for three hours with my Son (12). he kindly picked us up on Blidö with his beautiful Boat. We caught nice Perch and a few Pike. Everything was perfect, the Boat, the equipment and the very experienced and friendly Captain. We felt very comfortable from the first second and had a lot of fun with Lars Lindahl! I can only recommend it and would book it again at any time. thanks again to Captain Lars Lindahl

Booked this little trip with the family for midsummer holiday. Had one fantastic day out at sea with Lars (captain). The fishing gear and ship was great, captain provided water and snacks for us which was very thoughtful. Captain was very friendly and was also very thorough with explaining everything. 10/10 would recommend and do it again.

The best fishing guide I have ever been with. Everything (gear, equipment, boat) is on top level. The captain has a deep knoweldge about pike fishing. He is polite and really helpful. If you want to fish big pikes, Tomas is the right person for you.

Tomas was easy to communicate with and he gave us the options of where to fish and meet. He had water and beverages and even yummy snacks. He was easy to talk to and had a sense of humor. He even brought us back to Stockholm via the boat so we had a nice little cruise back in. The fishing was relaxing, beautiful, and fun! I would take this trip with Tomas again and again!
