Hertingforsen is a new stretch in Ätran that opened for fishing the
The section is adjacent to the fishing down in the town of Falkenberg, and is where the old power plant's furrow used to go. The dam has been demolished and the old rapids recreated, with nice rapids and pools.
The stretch is limited to 2 fishermen per day and only with C/R fishing.
In high water you fish from land or from the bank on the north side and
at lower water you wade out towards the south side,
where the gutter runs on low tide and fish.
Then the gutter is about 3-10m wide.
Which makes it an exciting fishing and you get really close to the fish.
At low tide, a one-handed rod or shorter two-handed fits perfectly, then you
most fish on fairly short line.
You have a couple of really nice pools with many pitches in the form of rocks
On some parts of the stretch it is really turbulent water, and just in
these rushing currents, fishing can be really good.
The distance is not that long, about 400 m.
Perfect for two people to fish in peace and quiet.
And if you are right, when a step comes, it can be offered fantastic fishing.
We have had the privilege of trial fishing this stretch for 3 seasons, and it has given us a couple of really nice moments, as well as an invaluable knowledge of this wonderful fishing stretch.
