Sport fishing in Lake Askesjö is always an adventure. It’s perfect for a number of species due to the unusual shape created by several fault fissures. As there are almost no open spaces, you’re never far from land wherever you anchor. Narrow sounds, lots of coves and a magnificent setting shape not only a fisherman’s dream, but also a paradise for fish.
Lake Askesjö is a typical wilderness forest lake. Most of the water is clear, though somewhat brownish. Most of the shores are mountainous and there are many islets and skerries. The lake is dotted with shallow, interesting coves whose reeds, water lilies and other floating aquatic plants create a perfect environment for a number of fish species. Several brooks and a smaller river empty into the lake and at Näsbo in its eastern part the water runs on to Lake Megsjö through a river. With few houses around the lake, the wilderness nature is only interrupted by a classic agricultural landscape segments.
