History – The Fishing Area
Gustavsfors Fishery Conservation Association was established in 1978 and has since worked actively with fishery management in the river.
The natural fish fauna suffered severely from acidification some years ago, but today the water quality is sufficiently good for sensitive species such as brown trout. Stocking of brown trout and grayling has therefore been carried out in order to restore the original fish fauna.
Rainbow trout is primarily planted in order to meet the increasing popular sport fishing in the region.
