This part of the lake Stora Le is included in Struven's-Stora Le's fishery conservation. (See also attached map) This part of the Stora Le extending from Flötefjorden up to Myrevarv, and further on to Fölsbyviken. It has a maximum depth of 26 m. The lake is has a lot of national interest, and it is extremely important for sport fishing and outdoor recreation in the area.
The area contains many shallow bays and islands, in a typical wilderness environment. The water is a bit "humus"- colored in comparison with other parts of the Stora Le. This is partly because of the rivers that flow into the inner parts of the region, such as Holmerudsälven and Lianeälven. There is also a small fishing camp in the area, and several private cabins for rent. One of the best locations for sportfisherman !
For sportfishermen, this water is "top of the line" when it comes to pike and perch-fishing. There are plenty of white fish, and the water is a bit humus colored in comparison with other parts of the Stora Le. Although the main sport fishing is focussed on perch and pike, there are a total of 27 other registered fish species in the lake ! After stocking of zander a few years ago, the first zander catches are reported. Perch Fishing can be really good in the area where the trees are blown over and ended up in the lake. Pike fishing is good throughout the whole year. NOTE : Pay attention to the maximum and minimum sizes that apply. (See also fishing rules)
All year. (But notice the closed area's and regulations.)
Pike on 17 KG and perches over 2 KG !
