Östebosjön is included in the Lower Upperudsälvens FVO which was established in 1990, and comprises a total water surface area of 1455 ha, between Håverud and Järnvägen in Köpmannebro. Östebosjön and other lakes under this FVO are directly connectedto Väner, where many species of fish occur. Besides pike and perch, there are good chances for Zander also
Östebosjön is about 40 m deep at its deepest point, and has much deeper and rockier beaches than for example Svansfjorden. Östebosjön also connects to Dalsland Canal and Snäcke Channel. In Snäcke you can divert up to enter the lake Ånimmen. There are incredibly many beautiful places around the lake, and it is a great lake to drift by boat and practice spinfishing. Something to recommend !
Östebosjön is, just like Swansfjorden, a nutrient-rich lake, in comparison with many other lakes in Dalsland. Trolling and spinfishing for pike and Zander can be good. Good perch fishing with jigs, spinners and small wobblers. Östebosjön has many islands and bays, and offers exciting sport fishing for mainly perch, pike and Zander !
