Salmon trolling on Lake Vänern with fishing guide Tommy Nerstrand


The spring of 2021 will be the last season on Lake Vänern after 23 years of "the world's most fun job"

The autumn seasonfishing days were very few - only 3 days we came out on Lake Vänern ... The fishing on these three days was very good! All fishing guests received approved salmon or trout!All other canceled days will be moved to the spring season, which will be the last season that I run guided tours on Lake Vänern.

It is a big challenge to conduct salmon trolling on Lake Vänern with all the usual obstacles such as windy weather, slippery road conditions, difficult fishing and now Corona came as "cream of the crop" which makes it impossible to conduct the guide in a business way and have it as income. For me, the closed border with Norway is a big problem.

For me, Corona became what helped me make the decision to quit after over 23 years of career as a salmon trolling guide on Lake Vänern. So now I will try to make a nice rounding for the spring. Some regulars have heard from me and booked one last fishing experience with me this spring. Feels warm in the heart. Will miss you all and all wonderful experiences we had in the boat together!

Hold out - Keep your distance - Keep in touch with each other!

Best Fish Greetings / Tommy

Most fishing days blow away… but when we come out we get both salmon and trout!

We have only come two days so far due to the windy conditions associated with mild weather.

With these pictures we just want to show that it is possible to get both salmon and trout!

Corona mode
We get some cancellations given the new restrictions and we then move the fishing forward to the spring and hope that the situation is better then!

Take care of you all and keep your distance, I hope we are seen and heard going forward!

Fully booked autumn season and some Corona rules for the season!

During the autumn from the end of October to the second week in December, it is currently fully booked. I run the guide half time with two or a maximum of three days per week.

We will also be extremely careful with the Corona rules that apply. All guests and myself MUST BE COMPLETELY HEALTHY AND WITHOUT COLD SYMPTOMS on the day of fishing.

I have also set the maximum number of participants to FOUR people in the boat. Otherwise, we hope that the autumn offers some great fishing days on Lake Vänern and the lakes in northern Dalsland / Värmland! The ports of departure that apply are just like before Sunnanå Harbor in Mellerud or Tössebäcken Harbor which is south of Åmål. (See the contact page!) When we choose the lakes, there are other starting points according to ö.k.

"Bulls Eye" for Peter from Lübeck!

Two large rainbow trout of 3.7 kg and 3.3 kg respectively and a pike on the first five casts…!

Then there was a cross stop in the fishing… but it was enough for Peter to be happy!

Bookings for November are almost full now! In December, however, there are free days left for Salmon Trolling on Lake Vänern!

A little "tip" from a satisfied customer is not wrong…!

More information about the package can be found HERE!

We hope to be able to carry out the autumn guided tours and that the Corona situation is better!

Some of the spring's canceled bookings on Lake Vänern were postponed to the autumn season instead, which we hope to be able to carry out according to plan!

There are free days left from mid-November onwards. If you are eager to try the trolling fishing for salmon and trout, it's time to book now!

At the beginning of November, two of our regular customers will come from Switzerland! Herrman and Alfred Beyeler. Then we usually alternate fishing for rainbow trout and some day with salmon trolling on Lake Vänern or on Västra Silen. All depending on the weather and wind!

These gentlemen "feel at home" in Bengtsfors after being here many times now! This is important when we work with our guests. -They should feel at home here in Bengtsfors and Dalsland!

Now we are keeping our fingers crossed that the Corona situation will not get worse and that people will respect the rules we have to abide by!

Nice perch fishing the other day!

Had father & son in the boat the other day on a round after perch! Wind and weather were better than yr.no predicted and we got some nice perch!

They rented a cottage near Upperud and were satisfied with their Dalsland stay.

Here is August with a couple of today's bathers! Almost 9 hg was the biggest of the day! They had also caught a couple of nice perch down at Köpmannebro and some pike as well.

Book a fun fishing for perch or rainbow trout!

Now that there is a summer break on Laxtrolling Vänern, we want to recommend two other fun fish!

Jig perch in the "home lake" or fishing for rainbow trout in float!

The perch fishing is run in a smaller control console and it is a maximum of 3 fishing guests + guide that applies. IF the weather is completely calm, it can also go with two adults + two smaller children. We fish for about 3 hours around the lake's rice vases. About 7-8 places. Price: 3500 kr. Fishing license included.

The fishing for rainbow trout is a maximum of 5 hours. Simpler grilled lunch + coffee included. Great chance to get big rainbow trout around 3-4 kg! Price: 1-4 pers 6000 kr.

Get in touch and we will choose the day according to how the weather and fishing are at the moment! Welcome! Tommy Tel. 0708-807222 or email: info (at) dalslandfishing.com

Perch at just over 9 hg!

Nice perch of about 7 hg!

Fine rainbow trout

Simpler grilled lunch is served at "half time"!

This is how happy you get when you have a rainbow trout on the hook!

All spring booked salmon trolling days were canceled p.g.a. covid-19.

Only a few private test fishing days have been made on the lake in the spring with both fantastic fishing and worse. Some movie clips are saved which will be published here!

During the summer, no salmon trolling trips will be run. What is the focus now is bookings for this autumn's LAXTROLLING on Lake Vänern and in the lakes! Some of the spring bookings were advanced in the fall, so some days are already logged into the calendar. It may therefore be a good idea to inquire now to book your salmon fishing in the fall!

What we offer before the fall is rainbow trout from floating or ABBORREFISKE in the "home lake" just outside Bengtsfors.

Perch fishing is done from a smaller pilot pulpit boat so max 2 adults or "smaller family" works!

Below are some pictures from lovely days this spring! Both from Lake Vänern and our fine lakes in Dalsland - Värmland.

Call or email us with inquiries and reservations! I'll be guiding Monday - Friday. Tel 0046 (0) 708807222 or via our form!

Welcome! / Tommy

Magical fishing on Lake Vänern!

Wonderful wildlife from our lakes ...!

On our way out to one of our fine lakes!

The entire month of April Salmon trolling on Lake Vänern is canceled p.g.a. pandemic COVID-19.

The cancellations from Norwegian fishing guests and other foreign guests have come as a natural phenomenon as the borders of the country are closed. In order to minimize the risk of infection, I have also moved forward the Swedish bookings for the fall season Oct-Dec.

In terms of fishing, there is no difference between spring and autumn. However, the fall season is often shorter and more intense! I hope and believe that we have a more stable position around COVID-19 when the autumn comes and that we can live a normal life again ...!

However, there is a chance to experience a fun sport fishing for rainbow trout!In flight or from land - You choose! It is a “Corona-safe” fishing that is 100% outdoor and with safe distances between participants, etc… See more info here!

Sport fishing for combatable rainbow trout is both fun and “Corona safe”…!
