MittSkåne offers a great variety of nice lakes and fish ponds where you can fish everything from perch to pikeperch and eel. At the jetty or in the boat, with the fishing pole in your hand, it is easy to relax.
A fishing permit is needed when fishing in certain water courses, under certain terms and conditions. It is usually sold by a local association with regards to a specific area. Normally the revenue is used to finance the regrowth of fish stocks and for liming of the lakes, as well as other activities aimed at maintaining the fishing areas in fertile conditions, and also to compensate the person in possession of the fishing right (the landowner).
Be sure to get a fishing permit that is valid for the current season and the lake or the pond where you want to go fishing, and investigate which fishing methods that are allowed.
