Fishing rules in Sweden

Swedish citizens may fish without a licence in public waters. Foreign citizens may fish without a licence in those waters as long as they use hand gear.

The basic rules of the Right of Public Access always apply: show consideration, don’t disturb, and don’t destroy.

Fishing is prohibited within 100 meters of stationary fishing gear, including fish farms. Fishing with nets, trolling (with or without motor), tip-up fishing and the like are not permitted without a license.

Sport fishing without a licence is allowed in certain private waters along the coasts and in Sweden’s five largest lakes—the VĂ€nern, the VĂ€ttern, the MĂ€laren, the HjĂ€lmaren and the Storsjön (in JĂ€mtland).

The Swedish coastlines, rivers and its largest lakes, such as VĂ€nern and VĂ€ttern, boast excellent salmon and trout fishing. Just as the waters in downtown Stockholm which are teeming with premium salmon and sea trout.

Try your luck 😀
