Fullday Ätran

Guiding salmon & seatrout in

Ätran Falkenberg Full day


Ätran in Falkenberg flows right through the center of town.

At the summer evenings you can go fishing and at the same time feel the pulse of the city. Music from the restaurants, laughs from the theater of Vallarna and more…. Nothing that disturbes your fishing, but makes a nice setting. Falkenberg has a really great range of exciting restaurant with

5 restaurants in the White Guide. If you want to combine food and fishing

Falkenberg is the place.

The lower parts of Ätrans has in the last years been well known for the demolition of the waterpower station to recreate the natural rapids in advantage for the salmon and other species. And it has made a fantastic results for the salmons to reach their spawning ground easier.

And the new Herting rapids has in the first years as a free rapid stream started producing a lot of new salmons. So the future looks really bright for Ätran and the fishing for salmon and seatrout.

This fishing stretch is allowed in the lower 3 km of the river,

witch makes it good even in really low water.

Ätran is also known to fish really good even in very warm summer temperatures. When the summer makes fishing hopeless in many rivers Ätran still delivers some good takes.

April-June the salmons mostly is arround 3,5-10 kg. (In April there is some seatrouts in the river to) In the middle of June-middle of August the average size is 1-3 kg. A fishing of great fun and a bit of my favorite fishing, theese smaller salmons tend to be more keen on biting.

Aug-Sept the salmon is more brown with their spawning colors and a bit more agressive in all sizes. With a good chance of hooking in to a angry big male salmon. The seatrout fishing starts in the middle of June and goes on untill the end of season. Mostly the seatrout fishing is done in the evenings in the dark, but in days with bad weather all day can deliver good fishes. The average seatrout is 1-3 kg but fishes at 4-7 kg is caught every year.

In the lowest part of the stretch you find a couple of really nice streamy parts, and further up more calmer stretches.

Spinfishing, flyfishing and angling with shrimp is allowed.

Most of the time it’s ok with a singlehand rod or a smaller doublehand.

But in high water a doublehand rod is to prefer.

The arrangement of my guidings is to meet at the salmon cottage in the uppest part of the stretch. When there we start with discussing the conditions, equipment, flies and more…. After this we walk downstream the river to fish the hot spots. I show you were and how to fish the best way,

flies for the season and more…….

When it’s a full day guiding we do a break for lunch for a couple of hours, and then meet again at a agreed place for further fishing.

The chance of hooking into a salmon in Ätran is quite good, but as always in salmon fishing it’s many factors that playes a part in the fishing.

But I will do my very best to give you a great time in Ätran.

The river is pretty easy to wade and you dont have to cast very far, on the contrary, the fish often takes the fly on a short line.

So if you want to try salmon fishing in a lovely environment you are warmly welcome to Falkenberg and Ätran.

Halfday guiding is either in the morning or in the evening
