Just three and a half hours from Gothenburg and two hours from Oslo, in the middle of the beautiful and unspoilt nature of the Varmland region, are the lakes 'Ränken' and 'Hugn', which are connected and offer very good fishing for large pike. It is not only the pike but also pike perch and perch that have a great attraction for the anglers who have been there before! Because once you have been here you will certainly come back in most cases. The combination of unspoilt nature, top fishing and excellent authentic accommodation make this a memorable location for all guests. And with a bit of luck you can catch one of the large trout that both lakes are rich in in spring. This is the world of the Halle Fishing Camp.
This is how your week in Halle can look like:
Halle Fishing Camp offers first-class fishing. Every year, pike of 120 cm and more are caught, as well as large pike perch and perch. But in order to conserve these impressive fish and to allow other anglers to catch them as well, the rule is that all pike bigger than 75 centimetres and zander bigger than 60 centimetres have to be put back! This is very beneficial for the fish stock and leads to good results and nice catches. The two lakes are together about 20 km2 and offer more than enough space and fishing spots to target the local predators for a week or more.
This camp is managed by the Bryntesson family of which Karl is the 'head man'. The family welcomes guests with a lot of passion and does everything to make your stay runs smoothly. Karl will also be sure to provide you with the latest information about the spots where the fish are staying during your fishing week.
