Svalemåla – world-class pike fishing in southern Sweden in the heart of Blekinge’s archipelago

Blekinge’s archipelago in the south of Sweden, is famous for its pike fishing. Here you can find plenty of large pike, often weighing around 10kg. Experience the sports fishing in Sweden's southernmost archipelago.

Our guests return year after year – they appreciate the surroundings and accommodation just as much as the fishing. The varied coastline with it’s rock formations, shallow bays and deeper parts ensure you a wide range of fishing experiences.
If you bring your own boat, we offer access to a small ramp for launching the boat at the fishing camp site and we can always find you a place to park your trailer. We have a wood fired sauna and a hot tub by the beach wich you can enjoy after your day of pike fishing.

Fishing waters

Popular areas for pike fishing are Järnaviks bay and the surrounding waters including those around the islands Bjärnö, Tjärö and Tärnö as well as the islands and coastline around Eriksberg nature reserve and the Bräkneån estuary. Further out to sea you can fish for sea trout and cod. If you like fishing in strong flowing currents, you can try the rivers Bräkneån and Vierydsån only a few kilometers drive from our holiday cottages.

Seasons and pike fishing regulations

The best time for pike fishing in southern Sweden is from March–May and September–October, but you can fish pike here all year round.

To minimise the negative effect on the pike habitat we only allow Catch & Release. All pikes should be released back in to the water. If you want to keep a pike for food it’s strictly set to one pike per boat/day when you rent a boat from us.
Be aware that only pikes between 40-75cm is allowed to keep, according to the Swedish law.

Fishing in the Baltic sea is free in Sweden, you need no license.
