Coarse fishing on the Viken lake

Töreboda

The fish management area of the lake Viken includes the entire lake and the Göta Canal up to the first lock. The lake covers an area of 4.000 ha and is surrounded by beautiful nature along the shoreline. The water of the lake is of excellent quality. Two lakes, the Unden and the Örlen, flow in to the Viken. Also, the Göta Canal leads through the lake. This helps to provide rewarding fishing conditions.

In the lake mostly pike, perch, zander, bream, bleak, burbot, ruffe and roach can be found. Species like brown trout, vendace and asp are more rare. However, for some years trout has been planted out and the population has been increasing. It is therefore assumed that within a few years time the population will be reproducing fully on its own.

Usually, the fishing is most successful along the patches of reed that grow along some parts of the shore line. Also the shallow parts between the small islands of the lake can provide good catches at times. Several locations along the lake offer boats for rent. If you bring your own, you can chose between five boat ramps to put in your boat.

Please do respect the fishing regulations applying for this area!
